Soooo Paul *Paulrus* Gardner’s Braehead Clan, with only 13 skaters, travelled to Coventry Blaze last night and came away with a very creditable 2-2 draw to give themselves a great chance of progressing to the semi finals of the EIHL Challenge Cup.
For a change it was Clan who were outshot, with Machesney saving 46 of 48 shots and continues to look impressive in front of the pipes. Bear in mind this is the same D that was in front of Garret Zemlak and you’ll get the picture. Two games, only 3 goals conceded leads me to think Gardner’s influence is being seen already!
Sadly no new signings this week to strengthen the team so Clan will travel tomorrow to face the Belfast Giants still short benched. Will the Gardner Influence be visible tomorrow? It’ll need to be for Braehead to come away with even a point.
