Weekend Preview: Scottish National League (SNL)


Aberdeen Lynx vs. Edinburgh Capitals:
This weekend, the Aberdeen Lynx and the Edinburgh Capitals are set to clash in what promises to be an exhilarating encounter. The teams, currently holding 2nd and 3rd place respectively, have a history of intense battles, including last season’s title-deciding match. With the Lynx securing victories in their last five games and the Capitals on a two-game winning streak, both squads are in top form. The sold-out Aberdeen Linx Ice Arena showcases the high anticipation for this clash, and fans can expect a fiercely contested game between two of SNL’s most followed teams.

Kirkcaldy Kestrels vs. Dundee Comets:
League leaders Kirkcaldy Kestrels are gearing up for a challenging game against the Dundee Comets. The Comets, currently in 7th place, face a tough test against the Kestrels, who boast an impressive 12 points. Although the Comets have shown resilience, as seen in their close match against the Capitals last weekend, they will need to bring their A game to compete with the league leaders on their home ice.

North Ayrshire Wild vs Dundee Tigers:
The North Ayrshire Wild are looking to avenge their earlier defeat as they face off against the Dundee Tigers. In their previous encounter, the Tigers secured a 6-2 victory. With the Wild positioned in 8th place with 2 points and the Tigers in 6th with 8 points, both teams are eager to secure a crucial win. The Wild will rely on home advantage to turn the tables.


Paisley Pirates vs. Kilmarnock Thunder:
On Sunday, the Paisley Pirates and Kilmarnock Thunder will face off in a closely contested match. Both teams have won four out of seven league games this season, and with the Pirates currently holding a slight edge in the standings, this game is crucial for both sides. The previous encounter in October ended with a narrow 9-7 victory for the Pirates at The Galleon Centre, setting the stage for another thrilling showdown as the Thunder seeks redemption.

As the weekend unfolds, Scottish ice hockey fans are in for a treat with a lineup of competitive matchups. The passion and excitement of SNL hockey are set to captivate fans across the league.
