Face Off : Giants head back to boot camp

Belfast Giants slumped to a 6-3 Elite League defeat at the Cardiff Devils on Saturday night in a game they led 2-1 after the first period.

A day later and despite a strong start from Ballymoney netminder Andrew Dickson, they blew a 2-0 lead at home against the Dundee Stars in a Challenge Cup Group A encounter, eventually losing on penalties.

This failure to hold on and build upon early advantages has led coach Derrick Walser to question the fitness of his players and he promised a return to "boot camp" in the build up to this weekend's two Challenge Cup games against Fife Flyers, in Kirkcaldy on Saturday with the return in Belfast on Sunday evening.
