Poor results run continues - home loss to Belfast (2-4)

The GMB Nottingham Panthers fell to another defeat in the Elite League after again falling behind and having to chase the game.

Giants scored two powerplay goals either side of the first break to take a grip on the game which Panthers hustled and bustled to try to get into but always remained behind.

Four-on-four action in the second period saw Alex Nikiforuk turn in to get the home side on the board but Giants hit a third goal before the break to restore their two goal cushion.

Captain Brad Moran fired home a powerplay goal in the third to set up a tense finale to the game but with netminder Miika Wiikman on the team bench in favour of an extra skater as Panthers searched in vain for an equaliser a move which summed up their night saw Panthers hit the referees skates as they tried to clear their zone to launch an attack and the puck fell kindly for the visitors and one pass later they hit the empty net.
