Craig Peacock scores twice as Belfast Giants beat Manchester Storm

Craig Peacock scored twice as Belfast Giants launched their Elite League campaign with a 6-2 victory over Manchester Storm at the SSE Arena.

Peacock put the Giants ahead just 2:33 into the contest but Manchester hit back with goals from Mathew Sisca and Vinny Scarsella to take a 2-1 lead into the first intermission.

Johan Ejdepalm then scored the fourth powerplay goal of the evening to tie the game before two goals in 30 seconds from Brandon Benedict and Peacock put the Giants in charge.

Jonathan Boxill and Mike Forney tallied in the third period to wrap up victory.
