New Years Eve–Steelers V Storm–Round 1

Following on from my previous post, here is another scrap from the 2000/1 ISL season.  In itself there isn’t much here, its more about setting the scene for what comes next. First though, a bit of background is probably required for those that are a little less familiar with ISL and British ice hockey of ten years ago.

Earlier in the season, Sheffield Steelers forward Paul Beraldo had been injured by Corey Spring of the Manchester Storm.  If I remember correctly Spring went unpunished, and if not any punishment he did receive certainly didn’t fit the crime as far as the Steelers were concerned.  There had been much talk of revenge prior to the game.  In this incident, Steelers Scott Allison looks to exact some revenge on a less than willing Spring.  This was just the start of what was to come. I’ll post some more from the game over the next few days.
