The Nottingham Panthers host Guildford Flames at the Motorpoint Arena this evening (7pm face-off).

The two sides go head-to-head with two vital Elite League points on the line - in a game sponsored by Blake Services.

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.

Head Coach, Jonathan Paredes, said: "Guildford are a really quick team and they have some good snipers.

"We know they will be positive and play with energy, so we will have to work hard to get a positive result.

"The boys have worked hard in training all week, worked hard on the detail and we are ready for the weekend."

We'll pay tribute to Mike Urquhart ahead of face-off after the former Panthers player passed away last weekend after a short illness. Mike was not only a former Panther but mentored thousands of young players in his roles with Nottingham Lions and the Nottingham Ice Hockey Club.

He also had success as a coach of Great Britain Under-20s and Under-18s, as well as coaching GB Women. Mike will also be well known to many as the friendly face greeting supporters at the entrance to Block 4.
