McEwan: Stingrays must produce a repeat performance
ASSISTANT coach Bobby McEwan says Hull Stingrays have everything to play for after holding big-spending Sheffield Steelers 2-2 in the first leg of the Elite League play-offs at Hull Arena.
In front of a vociferous crowd, Stingrays fell behind twice against a team that finished five places and 48 points ahead of them in the regular-season standings.
Steelers went ahead on the half-hour mark through Jon Phillips, but Dominic Osman equalised just before the second break. Neil Clark restored the visitors' lead 10 minutes from time, but Derek Campbell ensured the draw with a goal - also on the powerplay - two minutes later.
The sides meet again in a sold-out iceSheffield second-leg battle on Sunday night for a place in next weekend's semi-finals.

McEwan said: "We asked the guys to give us a chance for the second leg. Sheffield are a very, very good team and we battled hard for 60 minutes and gave it everything. We felt we dominated, and out-played the second-best team in the country, but we have to start again and do the same again on Sunday."
