Cardiff Devils claimed a 2-1 penalty shootout win over Elite League leaders Belfast Giants on Saturday night.

Luke Piggott had opened the scoring for Cardiff in the first period but Colin Shields cancelled that out three minutes later, with Jake Morrisette the difference in the shootout to claim a win for the Welsh side.

Meanwhile, Braehead Clan consigned Edinburgh Capitals to a 3-1 defeat - their eighth in succession - to claim their fifth win in a row and keep the pressure on third-placed Sheffield Steelers.

The Steelers won their game against Fife Flyers with a 3-0 shutout as they closed the gap on second-placed Dundee to a point.
