Panthers bounce back with big home win over Steelers
Nottingham Panthers 5-1 Sheffield Steelers
Tim Wallace's Nottingham Panthers found the perfect response to their defeat in Sheffield by beating the Steelers by four less than 24 hours later.
The hosts needed only 3:35 to open the scoring through Brett Perlini, but were pegged back by in-form Michael Davies six minutes later.
Gorgs Golovkovs put the Panthers back ahead 2:35 into the second, and 50 seconds before the end of the period William Quist struck to make it 3-1. Perlini and Quist both found the net again in the final period to complete a comfortable win for Nottingham.
