Dundee Stars 2 Guildford Flames 3 OT

A second visit to Scotland of the season for Guildford Flames yielded another victory as Paul Dixon’s took a 3-2 overtime win over Dundee Stars.


With both teams making the journey to Surrey for the second part of the double header, Flames gave themselves a psychological boost from the longest journey to make in the league


The Flames found themselves in front after the first period as Carl Ackered finished off a move involving Jesse Craige to put them one up.


Both teams couldn’t really add to the goal tally until the final minute of the second period when Marc-Olivier Mimar struck to level the game.


The tide turned with the home side finding the net again as Dundee coach Omar Pacha, playing to help the injury crisis at the club, finished to put them in front.


Flames rallied in the final few minutes of the third, looking to swing the pendulum and did so when Craige’s shot tied the game at two, taking the contest to a nervy overtime session.


Rhett Rachinski was the man to clinch another big road win for Guildford with the goal in the extra period to make it happy trip home before both teams do it all again tomorrow.
