The weekend is almost here…and so is hockey night in Belfast! This weekend sees THREE games as the Giants face Milton Keynes Lightning in a home double header this Friday and Saturday before travelling to face the Coventry Blaze on Sunday.
Here are your 5 reasons to go to Giants vs MK Lightning this Friday & Saturday…
1. Back to winning ways
No better time for the Giants to start a run than with three games in as many days. Coming off a split weekend against the Dundee Stars, the Giants look to return to winning ways against MK and Coventry.
Head Coach Adam Keefe is looking for ‘hard work’ from his team as they look to start climbing the Elite League standings. Listen to the full interview below.
2. Lightning Strikes Twice
Some of our most memorable nights have come on double header weekends and we are expecting more of the same this Friday & Saturday. MK, who are above the Giants in the standings currently, are getting their first Belfast double header experience in their second season in the league.
The Giants built up a healthy rivalry with the MK Lightning in their first Elite League season with good battles in Belfast. The last game between the two sides in Belfast was a memorable one and not just because the Giants won 10-4 – click below to re-live the game with the highlights.
