Panthers sink Stars to go second

Nottingham Panthers moved up to second in the Elite League with a 5-1 win over Dundee Stars on Sunday night.

It was a third victory in a row for the Panthers and they are now just two points behind leaders Belfast Giants as Dundee crashed to their sixth defeat in a row.

Coventry Blaze also stretched their winning run to three matches by triumphing by the same scoreline against Braehead Clan.

Elsewhere, bottom side Edinburgh Capitals upset fellow strugglers Hull Stingrays, who crashed to their third successive loss, 6-2.
