And coach Todd Dutiaume’s men edged early-season, pace-setters Nottingham Panthers at Kirkcaldy to reach the summit of the 11-strong league.

In the North-West, former player Riley Stadel broke Dundee Stars with a goal four minutes into sudden death overtime.
The Tayside team had been 3-0 down after 19 minutes at Manchester Storm.
Dundee battled back to level at 3-3 thanks to goals from Lukas Lundvald Nielsen, Matt Marquardt and Jordan Cownie to take it into overtime.
Glasgow Clan let slip a 1-0 and 2-1 lead to skid to a 5-3 home defeat to Coventry Blaze.
The Midlands club fired three goals in just over two, second-period minutes to turn the game on its head.
Sunday’s action sees Fife at play-of champions Cardiff Devils and Dundee hosting Nottingham Panthers (face-off 5pm) with Murrayfield Racers at Solway Sharks in the National Ice Hockey League Cup. The bus leaves Murrayfield at 1.30pm.
