March 5th v Nottingham Panthers - League


Final (PS)


Brett Ferguson and Daniel Tedesco had 3 points each, but a very late Panthers equalizer tied the game at 3 and forced overtime where Flames couldn’t take advantage of a 4 on 3 powerplay then had to settle for a single table point when Panthers delivered defeat of Spectrum’s men with the extra goal during the 6th round of penalties. 

The sides traded goals in the opening frame with Tedesco kicking it off at 4:36 and Mike Hammond levelling at 15:32. 

In the 2nd, just after Panthers killed off a carry over penalty from the 1st, Tanner Sorenson nudged Panthers into a lead but a few minutes later Tedesco’s 2nd of the night during a delayed penalty evened the game at a pair each and that is how things stood at the close of 40 minutes. 

Near the midway mark of the final set, Ferguson put Flames back in front, but with just a little less than 2 minutes remaining, Panthers squared it for the 3rd time on the night with an Adam Brady strike to force deciding measures. In the 4th, no success on a powerplay for the final minute and 46 seconds left only penalties to decide the evening.   A couple of goals each during the initial 5 round set forced sudden death shots where Niko Lahtinen tipped the evening in Panthers favour. 

Eamon McAdam made 22 saves on 25 shots and made 3 penalty stops, while Alex Dubeau stopped 29 of 32 and had 4 saves during penalties.

“It’s a tough one to lose that one when we were less than 2 minutes from closing out a win and had another good chance to put it away during a rare over time powerplay,” explained Paul Dixon.

“The good news is that we did get a point, and although Cardiff moved level with us, we did gain ground on the league leaders so we are actually closer to the top than we were when the night began. It still stings but overall the outcome still offered us progress so we can use that at least as a bit of relieve from the sting of the game.”

“We get another chance at it on Wednesday night so we will do our best to be ready for a tough Coventry Blaze team who will stop in for an important league clash.”
