Fife Flyers’ goalie David Brown says he’s out to break Braehead Clan hearts again for the second year in a row.
Brown was Hull Stingrays’ netminder last season when they eliminated Ryan Finnerty’s side in a dramatic Elite League play-off quarter-final – with the Canadian in great form in those games.
He said: “It would be nice to put Braehead out again at this stage and that’s certainly the plan this year.
“Drawing on that experience will take me into this weekend and will be valuable looking ahead.
“I’m sure they’re familiar with what I did too and it’s up to me to be solid as a rock for the boys back there and hopefully give us the chance to win.
“We’re looking forward to to very much and it’s a culmination of a good season and while we’ve got a good record against Braehead, it’s important we just keep doing what we’re doing in playing our game.”
Flyers head into the games after being pipped to the Gardiner Conference title by the Clan, something that will undoubtedly fuel them going into this weekend’s clashes.
Brown refuses to accept the title slipped away from them, but admits Todd Dutiaume’s side have a point to prove.
He added: ‘We’re out to right the wrong we feel was done in missing out on the Conference in the tiebreaker and we’re going out there to prove a point.
“We were satisfied with everything we did in our games and I felt we did the best we could.
“It didn’t necessarily slip away, but it was out of our control so we could do other than wait for the results to come in.
“The rivalry is certainly different compared to what I played in at Hull last year and the fact both teams are in Scotland adds to the occasions.
“In the games, we’ll focus on them, but concentrate more on ourselves and regain the form we had just a few weeks ago, I’m confident we can come out on top.”
