The Steelers' Andreas Valdix received a misconduct penalty in the final period after a clash with Giants' Kevin Raine.

Raine squared up to Valdix after the Sheffield player had delivered a late hit on Jim Vandermeer

Belfast were unable to exploit the subsequent power play but it was a satisfactory evening for the Giants ahead of Sunday's away game against the same opposition as all the home team's goals came from summer signings.
