The Belfast Giants earned a massive 2-0 win over the Cardiff Devils on Wednesday night.

Goals from Brandon Benedict and Matt Nickerson saw the Giants defeat the Elite League leaders at the SSE Arena.

The home side took the lead in the first period when Benedict found the net, assisted by captain Adam Keefe and Darryl Lloyd.

A scoreless second period followed as the Giants went for the win, and they secured their victory when Nickerson fired a shot straight down the ice and into the empty net as the clock ran out.

The Belfast Giants are next in action when they travel to meet the Braehead Clan on Sunday.
