Devils Edge Flames with Overtime Win on Wednesday

The Cardiff Devils got back to winning ways with a 4-3 win over the Guildford Flames on Wednesday night at Viola Arena.

An impressive crowd for a midweek clash saw a penalty called for a face-off violation just 13 seconds into the game.  The Flames made it 1-0 on the ensuing powerplay with Jesse Craige scoring at 2:13 just as Matt Pope was about to step back onto the ice.

The middle period saw the Devils even it up with a powerplay goal of their own when Layne Ulmer fired the puck top shelf over the shoulder of Chris Carrozzi at 26:27.

Four minutes later, the Flames were back in front thanks to an impressive individual effort from Kruise Reddick who danced around a Devils defender and fired the puck low past Ben Bowns to give the visitors a 2-1 lead at 30:42. 

Two minutes later, the Flames extended their lead when Evan Janssen found the back of the net, making it 3-1 at 32:46. Charles Linglet responded less than two minutes later to bring the Devils back within a goal at 34:20 with Mike Hedden and Gleason Fournier drawing assists on the play.

The Flames held their narrow 3-2 lead into the third period, but at 45:52, the Devils got the game-breaking play they needed.  With a Flames defender holding the puck, Matt Pope threw a big hit on him, battled to win the puck and found Joey Martin all alone in front who fired the puck low past Carrozzi to tie the game up at 3-3.

Regulation time ended with the game still tied so into overtime it went.  The Devils had the majority of the chances, and even had a 2-minute powerplay, but they failed to convert with the man advantage.  Then with 36 seconds left to play, Fournier fired a wrist shot through traffic from the blueline that beat Carrozzi to give the Devils a 4-3 win.
