The Giants return to action with back-to-back Elite League games on Halloween weekend against the Braehead Clan in Belfast this Saturday and on Sunday away to the Cardiff Devils. The Giants currently sit in fourth place with seven games played and two wins this weekend could see them move up to as high as second.
Braehead and their fans are the visitors to The SSE Arena, Belfast this Saturday night and here are 7 Halloween themed reasons why you need to get to the big game..
1. We’re In High Spirits!
The Giants have taken 20 points from a possible 26 stretching back to early September, including two Challenge Cup wins over the Clan in that time. Last time out against the Clan, the Giants won 5-1 in Belfast thanks to two goals from Chris Higgins and one each from Blair Riley, Michael Forney and Mark Garside.
2. Ghouls Galore
Michael Forney, Blair Riley and Chris Higgins, who have five game winning goals between them, currently sit in the Elite League’s top 20 scoring charts thanks to their impressive early season form. Higgins is 20th with 4 goals and 9 assists, Riley is 13th with 8 goals and 7 assists with Forney 10th overall thanks to 9 goals and 7 assists
