GAMEDAY PREVIEW AS PANTHERS HOST STEELERS IN CUP
It's a top-of-the-group Challenge Cup game at the Motorpoint Arena this evening as The Nottingham Panthers host Sheffield Steelers (7pm face-off).
Panthers are second in Group C on six points and a point behind the Steelers who lead the way with seven points.
The last time the two sides met in Nottingham, Panthers won 3-2 with Adam Brady scoring in overtime in the Challenge Cup.
Head Coach, Gary Graham, said: "The rivalry games are special for both organisations.
"In games like this you have to stick with the process and not let your emotions get the better of you.
"There's a process for being mentallly right and that's the same for players and a coach.
"You have to control the highs and lows, especially on home ice."
The Panthers will be without netminder Alex Dubeau who sits out the fourth game of his five-match ban.
Duggie Lagrone, who was placed on injured reserve this week, misses out through injury while Andrew Johnston is also unavailable (day-to-day).
