Dundee CCS Stars lost their home fixture on Saturday 4-2 to Braehead Clan.
However, they bounced back in style last night when they defeated Edinburgh Capitals 6-2 in Murrayfield.
That win ensures Stars maintain their lead at the top of the Gardiner Conference.
In Dundee Ice Arena on Saturday, Stars fell behind after one minute when Brendan Brooks opened the scoring for Clan.
Stars had the edge on pressure in the opening period but it took them until 15 seconds from the break to get onto the scoresheet when Martins Porejs levelled the game.
Stars had two powerplay opportunities in the second session but failed to capitalise on either.
In 32 minutes, Brooks grabbed his second goal of the game to give the visitors a 2-1 advantage going into the final stanza.
Three minutes into the period, John Dolan netted for Dundee to bring them level.
However, on 54 minutes, Sam McCluskey was given a two-minute penalty for holding. On the resultant powerplay, Chris Bruton put the visitors ahead 3-2.
Stars withdrew goalkeeper Lakosil in the final minutes in favour of the extra skater as they searched for an equaliser.
However, with 52 seconds remaining in the game, Stefan Meyer broke free to score into the empty net to give Braehead a 4-2 win and two Conference points.
At Murrayfield, Stars again found themselves behind in less than a minute when Paul Zanette opened the scoring for Edinburgh.
Dundee then pressed the home goal and were awarded with an equaliser when Curtis Leinweber set up Bobby Chaumont to level the score on seven minutes.
Four minutes later, Stars took the lead when Lou Dickenson netted with assists from Leinweber and David Turon.
Dundee were looking very threatening with every attack.
In 17 minutes, captain Riley Wetmore scored a third for the visitors.
With seconds remaining in the opening session, Justin Faryna emphasised Stars’ dominance when he added a fourth goal for the Taysiders who took their 4-1 advantage into the second period.
Stars continued to dominate the game.
Nine minutes into the middle session, Chaumont added his second goal of the game to give the visitors a 5-1 lead.
Dundee’s Jason Gray took a two-minute minor for tripping.
On the resultant powerplay, Jacob Johnston pulled a goal back for Capitals to make it 5-2.
Capitals applied some pressure on the Stars’ goal as they attempted to get back into the game.
However, the Dundee defence held firm for the remainder of the period.
Dundee broke through again early in the third stanza when Dickenson added his second of the game to open up a four- goal lead against their hosts.
With the game effectively won, the visitors saw out the remainder of the period to record a well-deserved 6-2 win and picked up two valuable Conference points that keeps them on top of the standings.
Coach Marc LeFebvre said after last night’s game: “Tonight I thought we stepped up to the plate and were very professional.
“We lost a goal on their first shift but, after that, we took control of the game and won it well.
“Being 4-1 up at the end of the first period, it’s human nature that you have the
tendency to ease up. However, the way they play, they are never out of a game and we kept up the pressure on them.
“Against Braehead, I thought we played a good game and deserved to take something out of it.
“Their second goal was against the run of play and their third was on the powerplay.
“Their goalie had an outstanding game so things didn’t break for us.
“We are top of the Conference and we intend to stay there. If we play like we did tonight then I’ll be happy. It’s a tight league and a tight Conference but we are still in there with a shout.”
