Panthers vs Storm: Saturday night | 16/03/19
It's double bubble home action for The Nottingham Panthers next weekend when they take on the Manchester Storm (Saturday at 19.00) and the Dundee Stars (Sunday at 16.00) at the Motorpoint Arena.
The Storm bring their physical brand of hockey to Nottingham on Saturday night in a game that could have huge playoff implications. The Panthers are a cat's whisker away from confirming their place in the EIHL post-season whilst Manchester currently occupy the eighth, and final, playoff spot and are fighting for their playoff lives.
Confidence is high in the Panthers camp after scoring 17 goals in the last four games, 14 of those 17 coming on home-ice, whilst going 3-0-1 in that stretch. With the three victories coming in consecutive home games.
Player/Assistant-Coach Kevin Henderson is happy with the way the side are building towards the post-season by playing the right way in recent games, and he is looking for that to continue in the final five regular season games of the 18/19 season.
You can hear Kevin look ahead to the Storm game on Panthers radio, with Xynomix, through the Radio Buzz section.
Sunday then sees Dundee visit Nottingham for the second time in just over a week, the Panthers skating out 4-1 winner over Scottish side on Saturday night, and after a fiery third period between the sides on Saturday night it promises to be another cracker inside the Motorpoint Arena as the EIHL playoff race heats up.
