Whilst the two teams did cancel each other out for a large part of the game, that was through genuine hard work and did not spoil the flow of the game or the tension of who's going break first.
Thoroughly enjoyed the game. Well played to the Cardiff Devils, and their wonderful fans.
And finally, Corey, Danny, Killer, Dan, Gui, Brock, Stevie, Marcus, Foxy, Benny, DAB, Matty, Franny, Lacho,Clarkie, Rhett, Sami, Marc, and Strachs - Thanks guys! It has been a great end to a very entertaining season. Hope to see many of you next year.

I thought it was a decent game and it should have come over really well on telly.
Didn't see much of the third as I was out waiting for the 50/50 and shirt raffle winners to come collect their winnings.
I did eventually manage to get all the prizes to all the winners. Although I did have to stand and gob off to all you lot on your way out to find the 50/50 winner! LOL.
On that note, I would like to extend a HUGE well done and thank you to all the 50/50 and raffle sellers this weekend, we brought most of ours down and used all your guys as well, I hope you would all agree they did a pretty phenomenal job all round. 3.5 and 4K prizes ain't bad eh?
Both 50/50 won by Panthers, and in fact the lady who won the 50/50 on Saturday won your signed shirt tonight! Talk about a perfect weekend!
Congratulations again guys, well deserved I thought.
Cardiff got their tactics spot on. Had they tried to play an open game with the injury list they've got we'd have beaten them comfortably. Their best chance was to play a tight, defensive game and try and get us on the counter. I didn't make for the most entertaining of games but certainly made it an intriguing one. Perhaps if we'd got an early goal it would have opened up a bit more but once DAB scored there was only going to be one winner.
This has been one of the most fun seasons I can remember. Roll on September!
Success is not final; failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
Congrats to you guys but in all fairness having a bye in the semis, not your fault, and then playing a depleted team who played 70 mins against the league champions earlier on, and then playing in your own barn surely anything but a win would have been a no no. Its not the Panthers fans fault one iota, but the sooner we all play on a level playing field the better. You guys have the best facilty its true, but its about time this mickey mouse league forked out for ice at either the MEN or the O2 and made this truelly a neutral venue. At £45 for a ticket for the final that cant be to far fetched as that was the price on Sunday.
