GAMEDAY PREVIEW: PANTHERS HOST FLYERS TONIGHT
The Nottingham Panthers take-on Fife Flyers this evening at the Motorpoint Arena looking to make it six Elite League victories in succession (7:30pm face-off).
Sunday's terrific 7-2 victory on-the-road at Dundee Stars made it five-in-a-row to move Panthers to second in the table, just two points behind leaders Sheffield Steelers.
You can buy your tickets online now for tonight's action and they're also available in-person at the Motorpoint Arena Box Office ahead of face-off.
Match sponsorship tonight is a very special one with the Panthers gifting it to our awesome volunteers - some who greet you with a smile on gamedays and others who do outstanding work behind-the-scenes.
Panthers Alternate Captain, Ollie Betteridge, said: "We have found some consistency in the league and we need to keep that going.
"Everyone is buying-in to what we need to do so we just have to keep grinding out the wins.
"It's never easy in this league whoever we play, so we know we have to be on it from the start. We just need to build on what we did on Sunday in Dundee and just keep on rolling."

It's now £1,400 for the Panthers Vault and there's a winner every time
The Panthers Vault - in association with Interseal Fire Protection - has now reached a huge £1,400. Tickets cost £1 and if yours is drawn out of the hat, you go on the ice with DJ Ken Feast and try to win the money inside the vault. Choose one of the players from the Panthers roster shown on the jumbotron to reveal a four-digit code and see if it unlocks the vault. The contestant who goes rinkside with Ken Feast won't be leaving empty-handed whether they crack the code or not, with two tickets for an arena show on offer at each home game. The tickets are kindly donated by the arena's main sponsor, Motorpoint.

Chuck-a-Puck is sponsored by Midlands Chauffeurs and pucks cost £1 each. It takes place during the second intermission and the winner is the person who lands their puck closest to Paws at centre-ice. The winner is invited onto the ice at the end of the game for a photo with their favourite player and receive a signed puck, as well as a code for two free pizzas.
Tonight's Shirt Off His Back is Jordan Kelsall and tickets will be on sale in the foyer and around the concourse for £1 each. The winner will receive his game-worn jersey and be invited onto the ice during the post-match presentations for a photo. The shirt will be signed and presented after the game.
Tickets for the Fifty50 raffle are sold for £1 each. The lucky winner will go home with a fantastic cash prize.
If you aren't successful in either the Shirt Off His Back or Fifty50, please make sure you keep your tickets. All tickets are put back into the hat for the second-prize draw and the winner will be announced on our social media channels and website within the next couple of days.
