We’re one day closer to the start of the 2021/22 timeline, but we’ll continue our journeys back through the others and today, there’s four to look back.

Coventry Blaze, Sheffield Steelers and Nottingham Panthers are all involved on this day so let’s look back at how those particular games panned out.


2014: Braehead Clan 4 Coventry Blaze 2 (Elite League)

Coventry Blaze made the trip to Scotland to fulfil a Saturday night fixture, but found themselves playing catch-up as Clan got the jump on them.

Marc LeFebvre’s side were looking for what would have been a big two points, but after going behind in the opening five minutes, there seemed to be no recovery.

That first goal came courtesy of Derek Roehl on a powerplay, after Cale Tanaka took a seat for holding the sticking.

Clan added to their advantage in the second period through Stefan Meyer then Jamie Fritsch in the opening minutes of the middle session.

Jereme Tendler got one back for the Blaze, but Meyer’s second effectively sealed the game for Clan, despite Tanaka adding Coventry’s second late on.

2015: Sheffield Steelers 4 Braehead Clan 3 (Overtime – Elite League)

Clan were on the bus and off to Sheffield for this 2015 Sunday clash and the team were in decent spirits after beating Edinburgh yesterday.

While the outcome wasn’t the perfect end to the weekend, a point on the road in Sheffield was the next best thing and some consolation for Ryan Finnerty and his men.

A quick exchange of goals saw Jeff Legue cancelled out by Nathan McIver before Brendan Brooks and Stefan Meyer fired the Clan 3-1 by the halfway point in the game.

Steelers had to wait until late in the second to respond as Chris Lawrence got one back at the tail end of the second before Jason Hewitt equalised with eight minutes to go.

Paul Thompson’s side nabbed the victory with 29 seconds on the overtime clock through Lawrence on the powerplay to send Clan home with one point less than they were hoping for.

2017: Braehead Clan 3 Nottingham Panthers 5 (Challenge Cup)

The Panthers made the midweek trip for a Challenge Cup tie that was starting to look make or break for Clan’s hopes in this competition.

With only one win in their previous three cup outings, John Tripp’s men needed a result here, but it never came for them.

Although Yann Sauve’s opening two goals were each wiped out by Tyler Scofield, Evan Mosey gave the visitors the advantage again before the end of the first.

Mosey got his second and Panthers’ fourth to make life harder for the Clan and although Tyler Shattock got Clan to within one, Josh Shalla’s third period marker ended it at a contest as Nottingham took the win.
