Belfast Giants fight back to beat Cardiff Devils

Runaway Elite League champions the Belfast Giants staged a late revival to beat the Cardiff Devils 5-4 at the Odyssey Arena on Friday night.

The Giants had been 4-2 down with less then 10 minutes left - but Kevin Phillips, Jeff Szwez and Colin Shields scored to secure the victory.

Coach Paul Adey admitted his Giants side were not at their best, but felt it would be harsh to criticise players who had already got the title wrapped up.
