Sheffield Steel Two Points At Home Against Giants
The Stena Line Belfast Giants fell to a 3-1 away defeat by the Sheffield Steelers on Sunday night with a Cullen Eddy empty net goal sealing the win with 61 seconds remaining.
Levi Nelson found the corner of the Giants net after a fortunate bounce to put the home side 1-0 up at 13:40 in the first period.
Guillaume Desbiens finished a nice Sheffield passing move to give his side a 2-0 early in the final period before Kris Beech struck at 52:07 to pull one back for the visitors, tipping in a Mitch Ganzak slapshot.
However Cullen Eddy’s clearance from the Steelers zone completed the Steelers win as the puck rolled into the empty Giants net with Stephen Murphy pulled.
