Elite League: Edinburgh Capitals 1, Braehead Clan 3

Brendan Brooks claimed two goals as Braehead Clan skated to their fifth win in all competitions over Edinburgh Capitals.

Brooks, a former Fife Flyers star, netted in the first and late in the third periods as Clan won 3-1.

Capitals, however, continue their nightmare season and the Elite League bottom-markers have now lost their last nine league fixtures.

Earlier, Brooks opened the scoring after seven minutes with a short-handed goal with one of his team-mates in the sin bin.

But Mike Cazzola levelled 60 seconds later after good work from Pavel Vorobyev and Dylan Anderson.

Former Capitals and Dundee Stars forward Bari McKenzie edged the visitors ahead for a second time after 38 minutes.

Brooks claimed his second 1min 20sec from time on an empty net after Capitals withdrew their netminder to give themselves an extra skater.
