We’re back to four games to look back on from Clan’s history as the team are home and away in our daily trip back in time.
After a couple of days of disappointing results, it’s a bit more positive as Hull Stingrays, Nottingham Panthers, Fife Flyers and Edinburgh Capitals all provided opposition.
Oh and we have a player departure as well.
2010: Braehead Clan 6 Hull Stingrays 2 (Elite League)
Bruce Richardson’s team were well and truly getting their feet under the table when Sylvain Cloutier’s Hull side made the trip to Glasgow for the first time.
It was quite a game as the Clan took the victory with a well deserved 6-2 result to keep their positive start to the season going.
Dominic Noel was first on the board before Brendan Cook added a second with a powerplay goal before the end of the opening period.
Kyle Bruce made it 3-0 after Konstantin Kalmikov had pulled one back for the Stingrays, with Ryan Lake picking up another for the visitors to close the gap to a goal.
Jon Landry soon eased the nerves, with Noel’s second of the game and Ryan Campbell adding to the tally to make it a good night’s work for the home team.
2011: Nottingham Panthers 3 Braehead Clan 0 (Elite League)
A Thursday night trip to Nottingham meant a long trip for Drew Bannister’s men and it was one that would have felt even longer on the road home.
Clan suffered a shutout at the hands of Corey Neilson’s team, with the Panthers scoring three times without reply to take the victory.
Scott Champagne was first up on the scoresheet, finishing on the powerplay as Sam Zajac took a seat for a holding call.
Stevie Lee doubled the lead, again with the man advantage before Robert Lachowicz added the icing on the cake with a late third on the empty net to finish things off.
2015: Braehead Clan 5 Fife Flyers 3 (Challenge Cup)
Six years ago today, Fife Flyers made the relatively short journey to Glasgow for a rivalry-driven contest that provided goals and entertainment as always.
Eight goals were shared, but it was the Clan who scored the majority to give them the win over the Kirkcaldy side in this Challenge Cup contest.
Scott Pitt scored in the opening minute to set the tone, but Jeff Lee equalised for Fife before Brendan Brooks restored the home side’s lead late in the opening period.
Clan went 3-1 up through Alex Leavitt, but the Flyers clawed their way back as TJ Caig, who finally found his way to Braehead, sorry, Glasgow, scored their second.
Ric Jackman scored twice, either side of the second period break to all but confirm victory and while Ryan Dingle was successful with a chance with three minutes to go, the night belonged to Clan.
2016: Edinburgh Capitals 2 Braehead Clan 5 (Elite League)
Our last game of the day takes us to Edinburgh and a contest with Michal Dobron’s side that saw the Clan take two league points away from Murrayfield.
Three goals in the space of four late first period minutes put Braehead well in front as Matt Haywood, Matt Beca and Jay Rosehill were all on target.
Ryan Finnerty’s men added to their tally with two more without reply as Zach Sullivan, with a rare goal and Corey Cowick made it 5-0 and effectively put the game out of sight.
Consolation strikes from Garrett Milan and Jared Staal were all Edinburgh could muster as the Clan went home two point healthier.
On this day in 2013, Clan announced the departure of Nathan Moon from the club.
The right winger signed for Ryan Finnerty from Evansville IceMen that summer, but made only eight appearances before returning to Evansville despite a promising start to life in the UK.
Moon left the club scoring five goals and making five assists in his brief spell with the Clan. He retired as a player in 2017.
