Weekend Recap – Week 30

On Friday night……

Sheffield Steelers 9 Fife Flyers 4  – Elite League

The Flyers are now winless on the road against the Steelers in their last 17 games with the last win in Sheffield being on 9th March 2019.

If you ignore a Challenge game and a 3rd/4th placed playoff game then the Flyers have only ever been involved in one other penalty free game during their EIHL era – that also came against the Steelers in a playoff quarter final on 28th March 2015.

The Flyers have now gone 6 games without conceding a powerplay goal.

On Sunday night……

Fife Flyers 1 Sheffield Steelers 4  – Elite League

The Steelers now have a W3 D1 L0 record against the Flyers in Playoff action.

It was another penalty free game – this requires a bit more time for verification but successive Flyers games without any penalties is almost certainly we think a first.
