Coventry Blaze 3 - 4 Cardiff Devils
Faceoff: 17:15 - 07/10/12
After their fine win at home last night against Sheffield the Devils travelled to the Midlands to take on Coventry, where a win would leapfrog them over the Blaze into fourth place. An overtime winner from Tyson Marsh gave the Welsh team the win and a great four-point weekend.
There was only the one goal separated the team after the first session and it came for the Devils with a strike from Max Birbraer at 7.55.
The teams exchanged goal in the second period for the Devils to maintain their one goal lead. Birbraer with his second of the game at 25.34 put the visitors two in front. The Blaze pulled one back with a shorthanded goal from Shea Guthrie at 37.02.
Devils restored their two-goal lead with a powerplay strike from Mac Faulkner at 50.03 and then 52 seconds later their lead was reduced once again to one as Mike Schutte scored on the powerplay. With the goaltender lifted, Mike Bayrack sent the game into overtime as he found the net at 58.59.
With the game heading towards a penalty shootout, Tyson Marsh had other ideas and hit home the game winner at 63.27.
