Sheffield Steelers boss Paul Thompson praised starlets Liam Kirk and Cole Shudra for their part in the 8-0 thrashing of Belfast Giants tonight.
"Our young kids sparked us today, they got us that first big goal, Liam did after a great play by Shudes and then it was a fantastic performance."
The pair combined to open their team's account on four minutes - and the side never looked back.
Thompson said the team had held a positive meeting before the game and moved on from the 5-2 loss the night before at Milton Keynes Kings.
Sheffield now hope to take tonight's form into Wednesday's Challenge Cup semi-final against Cardiff Devils.
