Belfast Giants fight back to earn away win over Coventry Blaze

Kevin Saurette was on target for Belfast in Sunday's win at Coventry

The Belfast Giants twice fought back from two goals down to defeat Coventry 7-4 in Sunday's Elite League game.

After the emotion of Saturday's home win over Doug Christiansen's Sheffield, Belfast made a slow start in Coventry.

Goals from Kevin Harvey and Adam Henrich gave Sheffield an early 2-0 lead before Craig Peacock replied.

Harvey restored Coventry's two-goal lead but goals by Cody Brookwell, Jeff Szwez (two), Robby Sandrock, Jeff Mason and Kevin Saurette saw the Giants win.

Brookwell's goal on 31:51 and Szwez's opening strike on 33:24 left the contest level after the second period.

A Ross Venus goal restored Coventry's advantage early in the final period but Sandrock (46:19) quickly had the Giants on terms and further goals from Mason (49:35), Saurette (58:17) and Szwez (59:37) ensured a highly satisfactory weekend for Paul Adey's side.

On Saturday, the Giants prevented a winning return to the Odyssey Arena for former coach Doug Christiansen as they defeated Sheffield 4-2.
