Next home game promises to be another cracker
On the basis of recent results the next home game for the GMB Nottingham Panthers - against Manchester on Saturday - promises to be another cracker. Both side have enjoyed good early season results. Although Manchester lost both of their games last weekend, they went down at home to Braehead by a narrow two goal margin including an empty-net goal, and next night lost out in Edinburgh after a lengthy penalty-shoot out. The Storm include former AHL heavyweight Eric Neilson on their roster this season. He has four years in the East Coast League and nine years in the AHL on his resume. Meanwhile Panthers latest recruit Brian McGrattan has just completed his debut weekend with the Nottingham club and registered his first point of the season with an assist in the win at Coventry on Sunday night. He has eight years in the AHL on his resume but has also played in the NHL for nine seasons.
