Panthers vs Devils: Gameday - 04/11/18
The Nottingham Panthers weekend of double home action concludes tonight with the visit of current Elite League champions Cardiff (face-off is at 4.00pm). The Devils come into the game having suffered only their second league defeat last night, falling by a 6-4 scoreline to the Coventry Blaze in Cardiff. Meanwhile the Panthers had rare Saturday without a game, but were on the ice under the watchful eye of Head Coach Rich Chernomaz after a 3-0 win over Manchester on Friday night.
