However Ryan Finnerty’s side will have something to say about that as they come in on the back of a loss on Sunday to Sheffield Steelers.
Let’s take a look at how the numbers look for the two teams ahead of the game:
Number of points by Panthers forward Kevin Domingue so far in the competition, made up of four goals and one assist. His assist came against Storm last week.
Also the number of players who have played for Braehead/Glasgow Clan. Matt Haywood, Craig Peacock, Ben Davies and Zach Sullivan for Storm and Panthers’ Liam Stenton have all played in Glasgow.
Number of victories for each team in the last eight meetings in Nottingham in Panthers’ ‘home’ games
Number of shots on goal by Kevin Domingue, the highest of the two teams playing in this fixture and second highest in the league overall
As at today, the number of days since Nottingham Panthers won a ‘home’ fixture
Number of players to have been at both clubs since Manchester Storm joined the Elite League in 2015. Paul Swindlehurst, Bobby Chamberlain, Logan MacMillan, Jindrich Pacl, Mathieu Gagnon and Joe Hazeldine have all played for both teams. Netminder Sam Gospel is part of the Storm squad, but has yet to play.
