Despite Guildford taking an early lead, the Cardiff Devils bagged three unanswered second period goals to record a 3-2 victory at the Spectrum on Sunday.
Flames opened the scoring on the powerplay at 4:03 when Devils Joey Martin was serving a two-minute minor for hooking, Calle Ackered netted for the hosts, in the only scoring in the opening period.
The table toppers hit back in the second period when Stephen Dixon struck on 23:23. Evan Mosey then made it 2-1 after 31:51 before a Mark Richardson marker at 34:12 gave the Welsh side a two-goal cushion.
Inside five minutes in the third period TJ Foster struck to reduce the deficit to a single goal. Despite the home side pouring on the pressure for the remaining time in the period, including pulling Chris Carrozzi late on, Devils defence held firm to claim the win.
