Mathieu Roy scored a powerplay goal with just four seconds remaining as holders Sheffield Steelers booked their place in the Elite League play-off final with a 3-2 victory over Hull Stingrays.
Roy, who this week signed a new two-year deal with Steelers, struck from close in to move the Elite League champions one step closer to the double.
Steelers had a goal ruled out after a review before Eric Galbraith nudged Stingrays in front at 31.41. Darrell Hay levelled on the powerplay at 34.51 before Colton Fretter made it 2-1 to the holders at 37.51.
Jonathan Phillips was denied on a breakaway by Stingrays goaltender David Brown and Steelers twice hit the frame of the goal before Cory Tanaka tied the game up at 48.40 after a review.
With time running out and overtime looming, Roy - the league’s leading point-scorer this season - pounced with a goal given after a review to break the hearts of the Stingrays, who were furious a high-stick call was missed.
The winners will meet either Belfast Giants or Coventry in the final on Sunday.
