We are taking you back to Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd February 2019 as the league’s top two went head-to-head in front of over 14,000 fans at The SSE Arena.
The Cardiff Devils looked certain to clinch a well publicised third league title in-a-row when they extended their lead over the Giants to a massive eleven points on 23rd January with a tenth straight win.
One month on and the Giants had dramatically slashed the Devils lead at the top to only three points – setting up two mouth watering clashes on the ice in Belfast.
Giants fans will tell you that these games had it all – goals, clashes, controversy and more. The atmosphere in the Arena was electric as the Elite League’s top two sides met for a title defining weekend in Belfast.
You can watch the games LIVE on either YouTube or Facebook this Friday 15th and Saturday 16th May. Both games face-off 6pm as we re-live one of the most famous weekends in Giants history.
