A 3-0 road win over arch rivals, Fife Flyers gave the Stars just the start they wanted and Sunday night’s clash with Glasgow Clan provided them the opportunity to complete the double over their Scottish rivals.
Missing from the Dundee line-up was injured forwards duo, Craig Garrigan and Ben Sokay, but also Ben Brown and Jonathan McBean, who were playing with their other teams as part of their two-way contracts.
It only took 11 minutes for the Stars to score their first goal of the season, last night in Kirkcaldy and it took them even less time to open the scoring against Glasgow, as Ryan Verrier found the back of the net after only four minutes.
The defenseman netted the first professional goal of his career by firing a long-range effort through traffic, from just inside the blueline and the puck found its way into the top left of the Glasgow goal.
Dundee then kept up the pressure on the Clan and were close to adding a second on numerous occasions as Clan goalie, Zach Driscoll had to rely on the help of his defence to clear away a few spilled rebounds.
The home side also had a five-on-three powerplay just moments after they took the lead, but failed to punish the Braehead club’s ill-discipline and Malcolm Cameron’s men would also waste their own man advantage later on in the period.
