Weekend Recap – Week 26

On Tuesday night……

Nottingham Panthers 1 Fife Flyers 3 – Elite League

The Flyers ended a run of three straight defeats in Nottingham.

Congratulations to Kevin Wehrs who scored his first goal for the Flyers.

Also congratulations to Johan Eriksson who was playing in his 100th EIHL game having also played 18 games for the Guildford Flames and 38 games for the Dundee Stars.

Flyers ended a streak of four games conceding a powerplay goal which was their longest stretch this season.

15 is the lowest number of shots on goal that the Flyers have had in a win over the Panthers in the EIHL – previous low shot totals of 9,11 and 13 have all ended in defeats.

The record for fewest Flyers shots on goal in a Flyers win in the EIHL is 14 when they beat the Dundee Stars in September 2022.

Troy Lajeunesse extended his team leading goals against the Panthers to five for the season.

On Saturday night……

Cardiff Devils 3 Fife Flyers 4    Shootout  – Elite League

The win in Cardiff was the Flyers first since November 2018 which ended a run of twelve consecutive losses to Devils on their home ice.

The Flyers have had their best points return in a season against Cardiff since the 2013/14 campaign.

The Flyers are now 3 and 4 on the season in shootouts, the three wins have all been on the road whilst the four losses have all been at home.

Collin Shirley is the Flyers top scorer against the Devils this season with 5 goals in the 6 games.

It was Lucas Chiodo’s first powerplay goal of the season.

There is now a perfect symmetry to the Flyers scoring this season with 55 goals scored in each of the three periods across all EIHL competitions and 5 scored in overtime/shootouts.
