Jeffrey Szwez scored the opener for the hosts on the powerplay at 24.51.
Cardiff levelled through Max Birbraer in the third period before Colin Shields netted the winner at the Odyssey as the Elite league leaders claimed their fifth win of the season.
It comes after the Giants were beaten 2-1 by the Devils on Saturday.
The visitors opened the scoring at the Odyssey through Luke Piggott before the goal was cancelled out by Colin Shields, and the game finished one-all.
Cardiff prevailed in the sudden death shootout with Jake Morrisette the difference.
The defeat was the Giants' second loss of the season at home - but following Sunday's result the team have now secured three out of four points this weekend.
