That's it for this evening, but you can read a full report from tonight's game in tomorrow's Adver and plenty more from the Link Centre throughout the week.
A little later than planned but here's some reaction from Wildcats coach Ryan Aldridge, who rightly picked out the displays of Hoog and Lyle for praise.
“Whenever we get four points it’s obviously a big bonus, especially coming to Peterborough because it’s hard to play here with the boards being so uneven,” he said.
“A couple of the boys have stepped up really well this weekend with Stevie Lyle being exceptional and Jonas (Hoog) playing four very good periods of hockey, and we have to be happy with that."

Anthem done, and we're nearly ready to go.
Here come the home side, which of course includes former Wildcat Nicky Watt.
Along with Swindon Town and Swindon Robins the Wildcats have been placed on the new Swindon Monopoly board. Happy with their pricing at 140?
Wildcats are out on the ice.
The Zamboni has done its business, so it's nearly time to get things started.
Ollie Betteridge picked up the man of the match award against the Tigers last night.
Wildcats go into this one in good form having beaten Telford 5-1 last night at the Link Centre, so will be looking to convert that into a four point weekend here this evening.
No Ned Payne this evening I'm afraid, so you will have to put up with me tonight.
Good evening ladies and gents and welcome to the Adver's live coverage of Swindon Wildcats' trip to Peterborough.
