Edinburgh Capitals are due at Coventry Blaze on Saturday (7pm) and co-coach Mike D’Orazio said it would be a last-minute decision on whether they travel.

And play-off chasing Braehead Clan will host Sheffield Steelers (7pm). A club spokesman said that after consulting with the league, Braehead Arena and the Sheffield Steelers, Saturday’s match will go ahead.

He added: “With intu Braehead having now reopened and all major trunk roads into Glasgow now open and passable, we have taken the decision to proceed with the game.”

Sheffield won 4-1 on their previous visit and Braehead have hit a slide, losing their last four games, but cling onto the last play-off spot.

They are in eighth position with 43 points from 48 games, the same points as Coventry who have also played 48 games.

Dundee are tenth with 40 points from 46 starts so points are at a premium for the Glasgow club.

Injury-hit Fife Flyers prepare for Saturday’s 7.15pm) home fixture against high-flying Manchester Storm looking to bounce back after being put to the sword 8-1 last Sunday at Sheffield Steelers.

Fourth-placed Flyers powered to a 6-2 victory in January but Ryan Finnerty’s stormtroopers, who won 3-2 in the North-West in October, have surged up the table since then.

And Storm, who are second in the table, have real firepower with four players in the league’s top five points scorers.

Mike Hammond currently tops the league’s scoring charts for all competitions.

And the former Braehead Clan player is in his third year as a professional having split his first year in the ECHL (East Coast Hockey League) between Cincinnati Cyclones, where he was a teammate of Flyers’ netminder Andy Iles, and Brampton Beast.

This season Hammond has 28 goals and 50 assists from 48 games for 78 points.

Team-mate Matt Beca, another former Clan star, is third with 62 points (21 goals and 41 assists from 48 games.

Dane Byers is fourth also with 62 points from 21 goals and 41 assists from 47 fixtures and top scorer Luke Moffat is fifth with 60 points from 32 goals and 28 assists.
