As the dust settles on the weekend of action up and down the country, let’s do our best to sum up the mood from the weekend by picking out 10 tweets to paint a picture for us.
1. Starting in the best possible way, Cardiff Devils coach Andrew Lord sums it up for the British teams in the CHL
Proud. The boys gave everything and the building was wild. Thank you fans. I think this weekend @cardiffdevils @BelfastGiants shows how far the @officialEIHL has come in only a few years. It’s time to use this momentum. Time for league wide sponsors and more. Work together.

2. Even Davy McGimpsey from our pals at A View From the Bridge enjoyed his weekend back in Belfast
Boarded for my flight back to England. Thanks to all the family, friends & hockey folks that made the last 4 days magic.

4. Glasgow Clan coach Zack Fitzgerald wasn’t particularly pleased with Dundee Stars fans after his player, Craig Moore, was hurt
I am shocked and appalled by some Dundee fans,not all, but some people’s disregard to a mans health. I dont care about the score, when someone is laying down injured and you’re cheering, that is sickening. Have some respect for a fellow human. It’s about his health not the game.

10. And to end, we’ll leave this here. No words needed for this.
What a game from the guys!
Felt right to do one final wave seeing as Granny B got mad at me when I told her I wasn't doing it anymore.
