Deals and Steals- Storm edition
With 3 games in the space of six days, it's going to be a busy slate for the Nottingham Panthers.
Having already produced one of their best domestic performances against Belfast, the Panthers will be hoping to replicate that against the Manchester Storm tonight at 7PM.
It's the Panthers second Challenge Cup matchup, after going down 6-5 to the Sheffield Steelers away earlier in the month, and they need to kickstart their campaign against the high-flying Storm to not be trying to fightback from too far behind.
Not only should it be a good showdown, tonights also sees the return of Mathieu Brisebois.
The defenseman, who has spent most of the season in the physio room, impressed in the pre-season games he participated in and will be hoping to make an even bigger impression in his return.
The Manchester Storm have confirmed they are bringing a large contingent of fans, so the Panthers Nation need to be ready to be extra loud to take them on off the ice.
There's plenty more going on at tonight's game too!

Fans have been very supportive of the new safety and security measures which have been brought in this season. Fans are urged to allow extra time to get to their seats. There will be bag searches and the restrictions on sizes will be enforced.
There will be no lockers in general use at Panthers’ home games, There will be pat downs and wand searches going on in the search lanes too. Please follow the arena staff instructions when leaving the arena after the games this year.
New marquees have been installed outside the arena for the security lanes so fans will not be too affected by adverse weather while queueing for security.
There will be reduced exits available but the number in use will vary depending on the size of the crowds at games.
PANTHERS’ VIP desk, is again on LEVEL THREE…that’s one flight of stairs up from the foyer and one flight of steps down from the hospitality boxes.
We have parking deals lined up with Nottingham City Car Parks at Broadmarsh East and Sheriff’s Lodge. It’s going to be cheap on a match by match basis for fans, but it’s cheaper still if you grab a parking season ticket. For more information call 0115 8761444.
The arena catering team will be feeding the Panthers’ players after their home games this season.
