Last Updated: 29/11/12 8:46am
Two late goals saw Coventry Blaze move to within two points of third-placed Nottingham with a 5-2 victory over struggling Edinburgh Capitals.
The loss for Capitals means that they stay in bottom spot, five points adrift of ninth-placed Fife.
Blaze made most of the running in the opening period which saw them ahead on 12.48 when Steven Chalmers scored his first goal of the season. At 16.45 the advantage was doubled as Dustin Cameron fired home on the powerplay.
Capitals had a better start in the second period to see them pull one back through Marcis Zembergs after only 1.49, then Curtis Leinweber levelled the scoring beating Peter Hirsch in the home cage at 35.00. However 28 seconds later Benn Olson edged the home side ahead once more.
There was no coming back for Capitals in the third period as a goal for Blaze from Jerraime Domish on 53.55 and Russell Cowley completing the scoring on 57.02.
