Find out what's in store this January!
With the arrival of the new year, we’re into the business end of the season when every single point is vital in our push for a play-off berth - and there are some cracking fixtures coming up for Lightning fans to make your presence felt!
The home action gets underway this Saturday with a visit from local rivals the Coventry Blaze (5th Jan). When we travelled to them on 23 December it was a penalty shots victory to Lightning, and last time they played in MK it was a 4-1 win to us…so we’ll be aiming to keep up that pattern!
Then 7 days later our guests are Todd Dutiaume’s Fife Flyers (Saturday 12th Jan). We’re due to play the Flyers on their home ice tomorrow (2 Jan) but when they last made the long trip to MK just last month, they went home empty handed with a 4-2 MKL home win.
The weekend of 19-20 gives us back-to-back action against the Sheffield Steelers. Sitting fifth in the League but bottom of their Conference, we play the Steelers at Planet Ice MK on Saturday 19th January before heading up to the Fly DSA Arena just 24 hours later for the return leg…we hope Sheffield is ready for the travelling Barmy Army!!
But it doesn’t stop there!! The final full week of January has two fixtures you will NOT want to miss!
Back in November our first full televised home game saw us register a 6-1 win against the Dundee Stars - and they are back in town on 24th January so the Lightning will be aiming for another buoyant home victory in front of our own fans.
Rounding off the month’s home action is a visit from the Belfast Giants on 27th January. The Giants haven’t been to Milton Keynes since mid-October so we need your loud and proud backing on the night to make sure we send them away empty handed from their final visit of the season!
