Panthers' title celebrations take their toll
NOTTINGHAM Panthers' ten-game winning run that took them to a first Elite League title came to a halt -- hardly surprisingly -- at the hands of Belfast Giants in a feisty affair at the Odyssey Arena.
Twenty four hours after their triumph against their championship rivals, Panthers - with Dan Green in goal and David Beauregard also in the line-up - went down 5-2 in a game surprisingly competitive given that it meant little in terms of league standings.
But both sides clearly had some scores to settle and after a series of scraps, Panthers, efforts from Bruce Graham and David Ling weren't enough as Belfast netted three power play goals to at least get something out of back to back games between the top two sides.
