Guildford Flames handed a short-benched fife Flyers team their third straight loss with a shutout win at the Spectrum on Sunday night.
Flames captain Brett Ferguson had both of the home side's goals - opening the scoring at 13:06 with the final touch on a Peter Crinella pass, and then firing home a Matt Alvaro feed at the back post with 24 seconds left in period two. Both were powerplay goals.
Fife should have levelled the game at 1-1 but missed a series of good chances on Eamon McAdam's net - Teemu Pulkkinen missing an empty net, and Lucas Chiodo also having two good attempts to tie things up.
The Flyers left empty-handed as Guildford took the points, but the teams will meet again on Wednesday night in the first leg of their Challenge Cup Quarter-Final.
