Edinburgh Capitals 4 - 2 Cardiff Devils
Faceoff: 18:00 - 04/11/12
After their great win in Braehead on Saturday night Devils came back down to earth with a thud as Capitals snapped a four game losing run with a confidence boosting home success.
A back to form Rene Jarolin was catalyst for the home side and was involved in every goal, scoring 2+2, while at the other end of the ice Tomas Hiadlovsky stopped 29 of 31 shots fired on him as he returned to his best form also.
Capitals took an early advantage as player/coach Richard Hartmann shot them ahead after only 1.44 on the powerplay and then at 4.58 Martin Cingel was on hand to double the home advantage and end the opening period scoring.
The second period saw Capitals till creating more in the way of chances but it was Devils who scored the only goal when Paul Bissonnette scored his second goal in two games at 31.24 to bring his side right back into it.
The next strike was always going to be crucial and it came the way of the home side at 46.52 on the powerplay with Jarolin firing home. Devils dug deep however and at 52.17 it was game on again when Chris Blight netted on the powerplay.
Devils tried but could not force overtime and it was Capitals who sealed the win when Jarolin fired into the empty net with 26 seconds of regulation remaining.
