Matchday - The Dundee Stars visit

The Nottingham Panthers take on the Dundee Stars in the last game before Christmas as the GMB Panthers face-off in home ice action at 7.30pm tonight. Confidence is high the GMB Panthers after one of their top team performances of the season saw them run out 5-2 winners over the table topping Devils last Sunday. Last weekend Stars beat Edinburgh 10-3. It promises to be an exciting game with both teams capable of scoring plenty of goals. Panthers media was busy during the week talking to players about the matchup. Robert Lachowicz spoke to Panthers Radio with Xynomix, and Andy Sertich had a chat with Panthers TV with the GMB.
