Devils Win in Glasgow on Wednesday Night

Two goals from Stephen Dixon and 24 saves from Ben Bowns led the way for the Devils on Wednesday Night as they doubled up on the Glasgow Clan 4-2.

Before the puck dropped, the Devils Head Coach Andrew Lord spoke about the importance of the opening goal, which his team finally got with 1:14 left to play in the opening period. Bryce Reddick hammered a slapshot from just inside the Clan zone and Mike Hedden got a stick on it to tip it past Joel Rumpel to make it 1-0 at 18:46.

The Devils doubled their lead just 48 seconds into the middle period when Stephen Dixon converted on a pass from Matt Pope to give the Devils a 2 goal lead. 

At 24:07, the Devils extended their lead courtesy of a great rush up the ice by Drew Scheistel that was finished off with a cannon that beat Rumpel to make it 3-0.

At 32:13 the home side finally got on the board when Matt Beca beat Ben Bowns to give the Clan some life and make it 3-1.  Dixon’s 2nd goal of the game re-established the 3 goal cushion for the Devils when he scored to make it 4-1 at 36:24.

The Clan came out flying in the final period, but despite outshooting the Devils 13 to 5, they only managed the one goal, which came at 44:11 from Scott Pitt who beat Bowns on the powerplay to make it 4-2.

Despite the Clan piling on the pressure, Bowns was there to shut the door and keep the Devils on top.  They held on for the 4-2 win, extending their lead at the top of the Elite League standings to 4 points with 4 games to play.
