The previous night's loss meant the Giants had a point to prove but Coventry scored twice in the opening minutes. But the Belfast side rose to the challenge and came back to take the lead at the first intermission.

Noah Clarke put home a shot from Jeff Mason to open up scoring for the visitors. This was followed by Daymen Rycroft and Andrew Fournier who combined to score a second and third goal for the Giants.

But as the Giants took the lead, it rattled the Coventry players and Brad Leeb was the first of four players ejected from the team.

That left 17-year-old Adam Gross to take his place as netminder, as he made his Elite League debut.

Darryl Lloyd led the Giants in the second period as his shot made the score 4-2, but Blaze were quick to bounce back and Dustin Cameron scored for the home side, but less than 30 seconds later Matt Towe rested the Giants two goal advantage.

Although Coventry looked like they could come back strong in the third period, with Greg Leeb striking early, David Phillips netted his second goal of the game for the Giants.

That left the score 5-8 to the Belfast side, and ensured the Giants took three of the four points available over the weekend.
