Face-off: Mike Forney treble keeps Belfast Giants joint top of League

A Mike Forney hat-trick steers Belfast Giants to a 5-4 win in overtime against Dundee Stars to stay joint top of the Elite League alongside Cardiff Devils.

The Giants defeated Sheffield Steelers 4-1 in a grudge match in Belfast on Saturday, after the Steelers were unhappy with Friday night's fixture being postponed to accommodate a rescheduled One Direction concert.

The Belfast outfit then secured four points from two Elite League fixtures at the weekend by winning away at Dundee, the last of Forney's goals clinching victory in overtime.
