Weaver gives Nottingham victory

Veteran defenceman Jonathan Weaver scored the only goal as Nottingham got back to winning ways with a 1-0 win over Cardiff.

Last season's Elite League champions suffered back-to-back defeats to Sheffield and Dundee at the weekend but Weaver's goal less than two minutes into the third period handed them two points on Tuesday night.

The Panthers now sit a point behind Sheffield in the race for second, with the Steelers having two games in hand, while the Devils are two points clear of Fife in the final play-off spot having played two games more.
