Sheffield Steelers went joint-top of the Elite League with a Wednesday night win over Fife Flyers in front of over 5,000 fans at the FlyDSA Arena.
Michael Davies put the hosts ahead on the powerplay with 4:44 gone, in what would end up as the only goal of the opening peropd. 3:30 into the second Rob Dowd doubled the lead, before the goal of the game made it 3-0. Playing shorthanded, Ben O'Connor's pass was taken on the spin by Tanner Eberle, who went through on a breakaway to calmly finish past Adam Morrison.
The Flyers got their own powerplay goal at 33:22 with a Sam Jones rocket, but converting just one of six opportunities they had with an extra skater cost them a greater way back into the game.
Ben O'Connor scored into the empty net from his own zone with 32 seconds to go to give Sheffield a 4-1 win.
