Panthers vs Storm: Gameday - 02/11/18
The Nottingham Panthers begin a weekend of double home action with the visit of the Manchester Storm tonight in the final Challenge Cup group game for both sides. A win in regulation would see the Panthers top their group, giving them a say in who and when they play in the quarter-finals.
