Face-Off: Continental Cup preview

The Belfast Giants travel to Angers in France this weekend for the semi-finals of the Continental Cup where they'll face Neman Grodno (Belarus), the hosts Angers and Sanok (Poland) with the top two sides progressing to the finals in January.

Steve Thornton's side went back to the top of the Elite League with a 2-1 win over Nottingham Panthers at the Odyssey Arena last Sunday after they had lost 4-2 at Sheffield Steelers the previous evening.

This week's Face-off features defenceman Calvin Elfring who believes if they stick to their game plan then the Giants can reach the Super Final.
