THE OTHER STUFF

In the Stars’ 19 years of action, they have only ever faced two teams whose name begins with ‘C’ and they are; CARDIFF DEVILS and COVENTRY BLAZE.

The three clubs have been battling it out against each other since the Stars inaugural season back in 2001-2002.

When the Stars joined the BNL in 2001, they would go on to win the league title and playoff championships, pipping the Blaze to both as they finished runners-up to the Scots, while the Devils brought up the rear of the league standings.

Coventry then topped the league the following season before departing the BNL, along with Cardiff, to join the newly-formed EIHL. Dundee would not encounter the sides again until they made their entry into the Elite League for the 2010-2011 campaign.

After 12 seasons of facing each other, every encounter always promises a lot of goals, with high-paced and skilful action.

In recent times, the Stars have found success against both clubs, home and away. A memorable 7-3 victory over the Blaze in November 2019 made for another rocking night at the DIA.

 

 

There was also the famous Saturday night playoff victory in the Welsh capital, as the Stars took a 4-2 first leg lead in the 2015-2016 Playoff Quarter-Finals. However, the Devils would overturn the result with a 4-1 in Tayside the next night.
