Blaze beaten in Fife

The Genting Casino Coventry Blaze were beaten 6-2 as the Fife Flyers extended their home winning run to four games. 

Blaze welcomed back Captain Justin Hamonic, Nate Halbert and David Broll for the trip to Scotland following suspension. 

Coventry got off to the perfect start when Luke Ferrara set-up Evan Bloodoff to score his first of two past his former team at 3.24. 

The Flyers tied things up at 15.10 when Greg Chase set-up Michael McNicholas for his first of two on the night. 

Bloodoff added his second of the game, finishing one-on-one from a David Clements stretch pass at 24.33.

After forward Alex Forbes was assessed a double minor for a high stick, the Flyers equalised again through Imants Lescovs on the powerplay (27.51).

Four seconds past the mid-way point, the Blaze conceded for the second time on the penalty-kill when McNicholas scored again to give the Flyers their first lead of the night. 

Four minutes later (34.45), Matt Carter scored his first of a double to put the home side two goals up. 

Fife went 5-2 up at 44.03 with a milestone goal - the team's 1,500th in the Premier Sports Elite League, scored by Carter with his second.

With frustration boiling over, the returning Broll was handed a misconduct penalty which ended his night at 54.46. 

Jacob Benson wrapped up the scoring with a sixth for the Flyers at 57.33.
