Sheffield Steelers took a backward step last night, while not even playing.
Fife Flyers, who have been a breath of fresh air in the Elite League this season, beat Braehead Clan 6-3 in Glasgow to leapfrog Steelers into fourth place.
Flyers still have two games in hand on Steelers - and more importantly to them three on division leaders Cardiff Devils.
Steelers will try to improve their position tonight, when Colton Fretter will be back in their line up against Guildford Flames, who trail Sheffield by a single point.
Paul Thompson's men have been as high as third in the table only once since the first week in January.
