Manchester Phoenix - Your EPL Ice Hockey Champions

It's been a while since the last update from your adopted EPIHL team the Manchester Phoenix. It's been a long season (by our standards) and after last weekends Playoff Finals Weekend in Coventry the 13/14 season is done and dusted. The Manchester Phoenix won their second ever league title finishing the 54 game regular season on 80 points, 6 points clear of second placed Basingstoke Bison.

As the season wound down the Phoenix and Bison played hard and, it would seem, the teams meeting in Altrincham on the 16th March would be the title decider. A big crowd came to the Ice Dome and saw a fantastic game of hockey with the Phoenix running out 5-2 victors, there were still two games to go but this win was decisive. We had a great crowd, great atmosphere and a great game. Take some time to watch the highlights, they are worth it:

With the title won, the Phoenix would not receive the trophy until the final home game of the season versus the Telford Tigers. With league placings decided and with them the playoff matchup's this game was a dead rubber. But both teams would want the win to carry form into the post season. The Tigers have, traditionally, been the whipping boys of the league. Run by the fans their budget was never big but, halfway through this past season they were bought by local boy done good (billionaire) and underwent a massive squad overhaul. Their second half of the season lifting them up the standings. This game would be a tough one but, the Phoenix had the trophy carrot hanging at the end of the game. Another good crowd at the Ice Dome made a fitting end of season atmosphere. Another Phoenix TV worth watching:
