After their excellent midweek 6-4 win in Braehead, Dundee CCS Stars return to Dundee Ice Arena on Sunday for a clash against league leaders Belfast Giants.
The win against Clan lifted the Taysiders into second place in the standings, seven points behind Sunday’s opponents.
A win for the home side would close the gap to five points going into the festive period.
Coach Jeff Hutchins said: “It was a huge win for us in Braehead.
“On two separate occasions, we let a two-goal lead slip but had the fighting qualities to come back to win the match.
“We played a good game, made some mistakes but, on the whole, we played well.
“We executed our opportunities better than they did.
“It’s another big game on Sunday.
“They embarrassed us last time out in Dundee and we were three goals down after the first period. You just can’t do that against a team with the quality Belfast have in their ranks.
“We will come out of the blocks flying and try to put pressure on them from the start.
“We have proved this season we are a good team and that we can compete with anyone, so we are going into the game confident we can get the two points.”
Stars are looking to have everyone back fit for Sunday’s game (FO 6.30pm).
Fife’s two-game weekend
Fife Flyers travel to Braehead on Saturday to take on Clan and that is followed by a home game in Kirkcaldy against Hull Stingrays on Sunday.
Fife are in good form, having taken seven points from a possible eight in their last four games, including a 7-6 win against Braehead last weekend.
They do, however, go into the games without defenceman Matt Nickerson, who starts a 12-game ban handed out to him by the Elite League for a series of match penalties.
Dundee Tigers have two road trips this weekend, starting with a Scottish National League fixture in Dumfries on Saturday against Solway Sharks.
They then travel to Murrayfield on Sunday to Face Edinburgh Capitals in a Scottish Cup quarter-final tie.
Coach Ian Carstairs said: “We had a good win in the league last weekend and want to build on that when we travel to Dumfries to play Solway Sharks.
“The Sharks are a young squad but packed with talent and enthusiasm.
“Last time we faced the Caps, we really didn’t turn up and were well beaten.
“That’s a performance we want to forget and we’ll be doing everything in our power to make amends and progress to the next round.
“The line changes we have made and the attitude the guys have been showing recently gives me a lot of confidence going in to both games.”
