Fife shock Braehead
Chris Auger scored a hat-trick as the Fife Flyers stunned the Elite League leaders Braehead Clan 6-2 at Fife Ice Arena.
Kyle Haines also bagged two goals after Jamie Milam had opened the scoring for the hosts, with Braehead only able to respond through Scott Pitt - when they were already 4-0 down - and Ben Davies.
Fortunately for Braehead, their nearest two challengers in the standings both lost as well on Saturday night.
The second-placed Belfast Giants were beaten 4-2 by the Sheffield Steelers while the Nottingham Panthers in third were downed 3-2 by the Cardiff Devils after a shootout - both high-flyers suffering second successive defeats.
In Saturday's other game, the Edinburgh Capitals won their bottom-of-the-table clash with the Dundee Stars 3-2 thanks to a brace from Daniel Naslund.
