On Saturday night……
Fife Flyers 2 Guildford Flames 3 OT – Elite League
The Flames made it five wins in a row against the Flyers this season.
The Flyers are now 1 win and 2 losses in overtime this season and 30 wins and 30 losses all time in all EIHL competitions
Congratulations to Drake Pilon who scored his first goal for the Flyers
Troy Lajeunesse has the hot stick at the moment and when he is credited on the gamesheet with an assist on the Flyers opening goal he will have had points in each of the last four games. His best points streak this season is six games which is also a team high.
Collin Shirley holds the best goals streak this term with counters in five straight games.
On Sunday night……
Coventry Blaze 5 Fife Flyers 4 OT – Elite League
The Flyers were aiming for their third straight win on Blaze ice which would have tied their best sequence in Coventry.
Including shootouts the strike by Troy Lajeunesse was the Flyers 100th goal in all EIHL competitions this season.
It also extended Troy’s points streak to five games.
Kyle Osterberg became the second Flyers player to rack up triple digits for shots on goal in all EIHL games this term.
Lucus Chiodo had his second multi goal game this season, no Flyers player has yet to record a hat trick but as well as Lucas, Max Humitz (twice), Teemu Pulkkinen (twice), Troy Lajeunesse (three times), Johan Eriksson (twice), Anthon Eriksson and Collin Shirley have all two goal games.
Lucas Chiodo now leads the Flyers in goals to shots ratio at 16.9% across all EIHL games played this season.
It’s the first time the Flyers have lost consecutive games in overtime, they have once previously lost back to back home games in bonus hockey. They are now 1 and 3 on the season and 30-31 all time in the EIHL in overtime.
December 3rd was the last time the Flyers started the week not at the foot of the standings.
