Edinburgh Capitals SNL 5 Aberdeen Lynx 4
EDINBURGH CAPITALS held on to the win in a closely fought contest at Murrayfield as Aberdeen Lynx ran them close in a nine-goal thriller.
Tyler Plews opened the scoring in the first period for the home side, but Jamie Vincent levelled things up for the Lynx in the second period before Iain Malcolm put them ahead.
Christian Johnston opened up a two-goal advantage for the away side, but that was back down to one a minute later through Mark Patterson.
The Caps reasserted themselves in the third period with quickfire goals from Michael Ireland and Joel Gautschi to take the lead before Ian Blake netted what proved to be the winner.
A late consolation from Malcolm couldn’t reinvigorate the Lynx as they left Murrayfield with nothing to show from a fine effort.
