Reasons to join us for Steelers battle
It's a big one at the Skydome Arena this Sunday (5.15pm) with the Elite League Playoff Champions, Sheffield Steelers in town. Wonder why you should join us? Here's some reasons why:
Because we'd 8-2 have been a Steeler the last time we played them
Because Luke Ferrara
The Brit signed from the Steelers in the summer registered a hat-trick and five points in that pre-season game. The Blaze #29 is now looking to stick it to his old team for real.
Because Robbo is looking for 50
The Blaze Assistant Coach has had a good week so far, welcoming his first child, Nixon Russell Robinson into the world on Monday. If not Saturday, on Sunday he's looking for a single goal to celebrate his 50th for the club.
Because it could get feisty
The pre-season games were hardly friendly affairs. According to a certain Sheffield representative (here) we tried our best to "goon it up". "Retribution" he questions? We don't care. We just want the points and we'll do whatever it takes to get them.
Because Dax a-ah
The Blaze defenceman celebrated his 26th Birthday this week. The American just loves to impose himself on the smaller Skydome ice. When an orange and white jersey crosses that Coventry blue-line on Sunday, watch out for the 6'2" #7. You could also win his signed away jersey in the Blaze Booster Club special raffle - tickets just £2 each.
Because you have to pick your player of the month
Next week, we will begin the voting for your PMC Financial Planning Player of the Month for September. This will be your last chance to see the guys in action before you make your choice.
Because Matt Marquardt
The former Kelly Cup winner was a popular character in Coventry last season where he successfully graduated from the Coventry University Business School. Following a return from injury he now hits the Skydome Arena ice as part of the Steelers.
