Sheffield Steelers player-coach Ryan Finnerty has spoken of his shock after his side were beaten by Hull Stingrays in the Elite League play-offs.
The Steelers crashed to a 5-2 home defeat on Saturday as the Stingrays made the semi-finals for the first time in their history.
"I'm in shock, I can't believe what we witnessed out there. There's no excuse," he told BBC Radio Sheffield.
"I feel like we let everyone down because we expected so much more."
