Face-off: Crucial weekend for Belfast Giants

The pressure is on Elite League champions Belfast Giants after taking just one point from last weekend's two games against Nottingham Panthers.

Giants player Jeff Mason and coach Steve Thornton give their thoughts ahead of Friday's home game against Cardiff Devils and the trip to leaders Braehead Clan on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the Belfast team are supporting Giants season ticket holder Tom Simpson, 15, who has a rare blood disorder and is to undergo a bone marrow transplant.
