But the team boss played down his own role in the dramatic win.

Steelers were trailing and couldn't find the net on a 5-on-3 Power Play at the Arena this evening.

Coach Thompson called a Time Out handed out his instructions on a set-play and Robert Dowd equalised at 2-2 at 51;33.

It was a game changer with Sheffield scoring two more in the remaining minutes to take a three-goal advantage for the second leg of the semi final in Surrey tomorrow.
