Your Go Goodwins Manchester Storm hopes of a 4 point Scottish Double Header weekend were cut short thanks to an incredible display from the Edinburgh Capitals, in which a double from Ainars Podzins, helped end the hosts 15-game losing run with a 4-3 win.

The men from Murrayfield, who picked up their first victory since the end of November, opened the scoring near the halfway point of the first period when Sergei Banashkov took advantage of a defensive error and duly punished the Storm.

Storm, who were coming off a 5-2 win at the Braehead Clan the night before, restored the balance five minutes later as Ciaran Long’s shot found a way through a sea of bodies to end up in the back of the Capitals net. Mintues later, Declan Balmer slotted home for his first Storm goal, to end the first period narrowly in front.

However, the Capitals found themselves on level terms again barely a minute into the 2nd as Mike Cazzola slotted home past Clemente in the Storm net, much to the delight of the home fans. They went in front once again, whilst on the powerplay, when Ainars Podzins poked home five minutes into the second period, keeping their lead all the way until the second break.

The third period saw Dallas Ehrhardt equalized early for your Storm, as they found a way back, but Podzins second restored Edinburgh’s advantage as they held on for a big victory.
