The Trade-Mart Dundee Stars won a point on the road in Belfast on Saturday but could have taken both after leading the Giants 2-0.

By Kris Smith

The Stars made no changes to their roster from Friday’s defeat in Glasgow and they got off to a much better start as Lucas Brine and the Dundee defence denied a lot of shots from the Giants through the opening minutes.

Belfast then went on the powerplay in the 10th minute as Carter Johnson was called for tripping up Giants forward, Kohei Sato but the home team were unable to capitalise on their man advantage and the Stars punished them for by taking the lead on 14 minutes.

Anthony Rinaldi led the Dundee attack as he burst down the left wing before sticking a shot on net and Belfast goalie, Jackson Whistle could only make a pad save that played the puck out to the right and into the path of James Phelan, who fired home the rebound.



Phelan would then add his name to the game sheet again two minutes later as tensions rose and he and Ciaran Long dropped the gloves and went toe-to-toe in a short bout before both players fell to the ice.
