Jeff Legue finally got to celebrate his return to Sheffield Steelers, last night.

The Canadian craftsman scored the opening goal and assisted on the second as Steelers clicked into gear at Dundee Stars.

After being on the losing side four times since returning to the club, following an interlude at EPL Steeldogs, Legue scored from Colton Fretter and Michael Forney.

Then three minutes later he and Forney worked together to set up a rare goal for Mark Thomas - the d-man who had predicted there would be no panic in the side after four defeats.

Dundee, who have managed just three regulation wins out of 31 attempts in the League, had been outshot 11-5 in the first 20 minutes and knew a hiding could be on the cards when another Sheffield blue liner, Gord Baldwin, struck home number three at 26;32.

But the Scots stuck at the task and former Steeler Chris Blight had to be denied by a Frank Doyle save on a breakaway.

Steelers, who were being watched by Braehead Clan coach Ryan Finnerty, wanted to ensure goalie Doyle got his eight shutout of his Sheffield career - and his third against Dundee.

That they managed, despite a flurry of penalties to either side, to win the leg 3-0.

n The return fixture is next Wednesday at Sheffield Arena (7.30pm) Steelers host Nottingham Panthers on Saturday in the League before travelling to Coventry Blaze on Sunday.

Sheffield Steeldogs are in away and home matches with Milton Keynes this weekend. The iceSheffield face off on Sunday is at 5.30pm.
