Netminder Tomas Hiadlovsky aims to continue to pull out all the stops again for Edinburgh Capitals tonight.
Despite the Slovakian’s red-hot form between the pipes, Caps have failed to win in seven ice hockey games. This evening, they face Nottingham Panthers in the third of a four-game Elite League away trip and Hiadlovsky is adamant that the hard-earned league point picked up on Sunday at Coventry Blaze, in a 3-2 loss after penalty shots, will hold them in good stead against the Panthers.
“We put in a really good performance on Sunday and although we didn’t win, to get a point is still something positive to take into Nottingham,” said Hiadlovsky. “We’re focused on doing a similar job tonight and hopefully we’ll be rewarded with something to build on.”
Hiadlovskay, with a save percentage of .958 (95 per cent success rate) over the last four games, has been sensational of late, but admits his own form means nothing if Edinburgh, who have Canadian forward Jade Portwood returning to the line-up after a two-game suspension, fail to get a result.
He added: “If the team lose and I have a good game it means nothing to me.”
