THE WEEK AHEAD: Riding high into a new week
There’s nothing like a four-point weekend to start a new week and that’s the case for Aspray Glasgow West sponsored Glasgow Clan.
There isn’t long to reflect on the glory of those victories as another big seven days looms large, featuring two very difficult away trips and a new face in the Clan line-up.
We’ll delve into those shortly, but in case you have missed what’s been happening, here’s a recap:
- SIGNING: Clan welcome former DEL defenceman
- REPORT: Sheffield Steelers 1 Glasgow Clan 2
- HIGHLIGHTS: Glasgow Clan 3 Guildford Flames 2 (OT)
- REPORT: Last gasp Vinnell extinguishes Flames
- NEWS: Craighead set for short period in Canada for personal reasons
- OSC: Strikers hit the lanes for bowling night
Guildford Flames vs Glasgow Clan (Elite Ice Hockey League, face off 7:30pm)
After the high of a four-game winning run, Guildford have suffered a three-game losing streak over the weekend so will be keen to turn that around.
Their next visitors are the Clan, fresh from their winning weekend and quite the contrast in moods heading into this meeting compared to the game in Glasgow on Friday.
The Spectrum is not a place Glasgow have had too much success in in recent years so has the makings of another big night ahead for Jason Morgan and his team.
Belfast Giants vs Glasgow Clan (Elite Ice Hockey League, face off 7:00pm)
Belfast Giants will be counting the days to this game after another disappointing weekend that’s left them with only one win in their last seven games. Yes, really!
It’s a surprising stat and you just know the Giants coach Adam Keefe and his team will work hard to find that winning formula.
As we know, Belfast is another venue that hasn’t been kind to the Clan in recent years so this could be another night where that could change a little.
Glasgow Clan vs Manchester Storm (Elite Ice Hockey League, face off 5:00pm)
The end of a busy week culminates with a visit by Manchester Storm and the first meeting of the season between the two teams.
Matt Ginn and his side have began the season well so far so a trip to Glasgow won’t phase them in the slightest as they look to pick up two big points on the road.
For the Clan, it’s a big chance to see if they can end the week on a high and if earlier results can go their way, it really could be quite the night in prospect.
