Face-Off: Giants ready for away games in Hull and Sheffield
Belfast Giants defenceman David Phillips reflects on the recent action and also looks ahead to this weekend's road trips to his native Hull and Sheffield.
The Giants defeated Edinburgh Capitals 8-2 in the Elite League at the Odyssey Arena on Friday night before being edged out 4-3 in overtime in the Challenge Cup by Braehead Clan on Saturday.
Once again, there were plenty of physical exchanges in last weekend's games and Phillips is expecting more of the same in the coming weeks.
Belfast face Hull on Saturday evening before making a trip across Yorkshire to take on Sheffield.
