 Fife Flyers vs Nottingham Panthers game summary

Fife Flyers, sponsored by Arnold Clark Mercedes-Benz, welcomed Corey Neilson's Nottingham Panthers to Fife Ice Arena on Sunday evening for the first time with the only encounter this season seeing Flyers come out 5-4 overtime winners in Nottingham back in November.

Flyers went into Sunday's game with a full roster available resulting in Brady Ramsay being Flyers healthy scratch as Todd Dutiaume's side looked to end a run of 4 consecutives defeats.

Despite a 30 minute delay to face-off due to a fault with the zamboni, both teams weren't slow out the blocks, with both teams having good scoring opportunities in the opening 10 minutes.

Despite a number of chances for both sides neither team could break the deadlock.

The major talking point from the opening period saw Flyers captain leave the game with a lower body injury and in serious discomfort, after what appeared to be an innocuous coming together with a Panthers forward.

With no goals in the opening period the sides went into the dressing room tied at 0-0.

A tigher second period saw Flyers look to get the go ahead goal but were unable to find a way through Panthers netmind Patrick Galbraith.

As the period looked to be heading to a close with the score goalles, Panthers Yann Sauve fired the puck top corner at 37:05 to give the visitors the lead going into the final period.

Flyers got themselves back in the game early in the 3rd period when Evan Bloodoff tied the game at 41:35 picking up the rebound at the Panthers net.

Bloodoff then put Fife in the lead when he picked up a loose puck in front of the Panthers' net to make it 2-1 at 47:34. Flyers lead didn't last long as Mark Derlago tied the game for the visitors at 47:50.

With just over 3 minute remaining on the clock Ian Young sealed a much needed win for Todd Dutiaume's side at 56:28, ending a 4 game losing run.
