Jono returns

STEELERS' long-term injury victim, Jonathan Phillips, wants to come back and play in tomorrow's 'match of the season' at the Arena.

Sheffield's team captain has been out since October with a knee injury, but says: "I definitely want to play against Cardiff Devils.

"I have skated and all seems good. I didn't get involved with the physical stuff. I will today, though, and stay on after practice and do some extra work with some of the guys doing battling drills up and down by the boards.
