Belfast Giants moved to within three points of Elite League leaders Braehead Clan after returning to winning ways at home to Cardiff Devils.

Having lost their last three matches, two of which were to title rivals Nottingham Panthers, they got off to an ideal start with a goal from Mike Kompon in the first minute.

Having taken a 2-0 lead, they never relinquished their hold on the game and two goals from Craig Peacock in the second period helped secure a 6-3 victory to move them up to third in the table.
