AN overtime winner by Guillaume Doucet broke Braehead Clan hearts as Cardiff Devils took the points from Glasgow in a 1-0 win.

A tight first period played out as both sides couldn’t find a way to breach each other’s rearguard.

Chances from Chris Bruton and Thomas Nesbitt were as close as you could get, but Clan and Devils went in level after 20 minutes.

There was opportunities in the second period too, but again it remained blank despite Joey Martin and Doucet testing Chris Holt in Clan’s goal.

Then Stefan Meyer forced Cardiff goalie Ben Bowns into a save at his post followed by a point blank stop from Matt Keith almost immediately after.

Both goalies were the story of this game as it went all the way to overtime as Bowns and Holt delivered man of the match performances.

In the end, the visitors got the vital piece of luck as Doucet forced the puck over the line to give Cardiff a big two points at Braehead in a match that genuinely could have gone either way.
