Their evening of inactivity saw them move from joint second in the table to fourth.

Belfast Giants - who had been level on points with Steelers and are due to play at Sheffield Arena on Sunday night - beat Manchester Storm.

While Friday's league leaders Nottingham Panthers slipped up to reigning champions Cardiff Devils.

Cardiff, Belfast and Nottingham are all tied at the top on 31 points - an indication of how competitive the division is.

The Welsh club and Nottingham both have games in hand on Paul Thompson's men.
