Game day: Panthers vs Stars! | 17/03/19
The Nottingham Panthers look to make it five home wins on the bounce, after victories over Glasgow, Fife, Dundee and Manchester, at 4.00pm when the puck drops inside the Motorpoint Arena for the visit of the Dundee Stars.
Whilst the Panthers booked their place in the EIHL Predictor Playoffs on Saturday night, with a 5-2 win over the Manchester Storm, the Stars are battling with Manchester and Coventry for the eighth, and final, playoff spot. The Dundee outfit couldn't take advantage of the Panthers victory over the Storm as they fell to the Guildford Flames on Saturday night so they'll be looking to get back on track if they're to climb back up the standings.
The Panthers defeated the Stars eight days ago by a 4-1 scoreline, you can see the highlights of that game below, and after a chippy third period between the sides it promises to be an entertaining affair between the two sides.
Dylan Olsen is the only absentee for the Panthers as he continues his rehabilitation from a long term lower body injury, picked up after a collision with the boards against Milton Keynes back on February 2nd, so interim Head Coach Rick Strachan will have a full quota of imports at his disposal for tonight's important game.
