With over 70% of the votes, you predicted that if Cardiff had played Manchester in the Playoff Quater-Finals then the Devils would have won through. In the final match, 57% of you voted for Belfast to make the Playoff Finals Weekend over Nottingham.

Don't forget that the 2020 Playoff jersey auction is now live!

So in our 'Playoffs That Never Were' FInals Weekend it's a clash of the 2019 finalists in the first semi. 

Belfast definitely had the upper hand in the teams' league meetings. The Giants won both games in the double-header of November before the sides split the return series with a 1-0 win each at the SSE Arena in February. Cardiff won the only other meeting between the teams in the league with a road victory just before Christmas.

In the Challenge Cup however the Devils dominated. Following a 1-0 first leg win in Belfast, the Devils came back to Cardiff and thrashed the defending champions 4-0 in the Quarter-Finals.
