Elite League action
Elite League action

Sheffield Steelers tonight cruised to their second successive win in six days, over Fife Flyers.

But they had to come back from adversity to claim the points, north of the border.
A fired-up Steelers conceded 12 minutes penalties in the first period and they went behind at 12.18, on the Power Play, when Jeff Lee penalised Zack Fitzgerald's absence with a goal.
But Rob Dowd made it 1-1 at 16;11.
And they took charge with a Power Play goal that will have pleased coach Paul Thompson at 21.12 when d-,man Ben O'Connor found the net.
A second power play goal followed six minutes later from the on form Colton Fretter - making it four from four in terms of PP goals.
The time had come to conserve and defend.
And Marek Pinc certainly played his part with three solid as Fife stepped on the gas.
