Sheffield Steelers went 3-0 behind in a mistake-ridden first period tonight – but then began a highly-watchable fightback.
Guildford Flames had made the most of their chances and, in truth, could have had more.
Steelers started the match without Justin Buzzeo, who had been allowed advanced permission to attend a wedding in Canada.
Import forward Anthony DeLuca made his debut on the third line.
Sheffield were behind at 3;26 Brett Ferguson firing under Jackson Whistle.
Tanner Eberle hit the post but Sheffield could have conceded again, when Kruise Reddick sprung out the penalty box and advanced on Whistle, firing over the bar.
Sheffield lost possession in their own half and went 0-2 down, as Ferguson found the net again.
It could have been worse as Erik Lindhagen seemed to hit the post as he drove the net.
It was 0-3 though when Evan Janssen was given the freedom of Sheffield Arena to score.
The fightback was an impressive one, though. And it came with two powerplay goals.
Aaron Johnson, who had been hurt during a penalty kill, still managed to get up the ice to pass to Evan McGrath, who rifled home.
Stefan Della Rovere back-handed a second, again with an assist from Johnson, with 22 seconds left of a highly-entertaining first period.
Arena fans were delighted – but their optimism took a blow when Ian Watters firing top-shelf past Whistle’s left hand.
