The Kitmart Dundee Stars were back on home ice for the first time in five games and were looking to win two crucial points that could boost their chances of finishing as high as fourth in the Elite League table.

Both teams were missing their usual starting goaltenders but both Brython Preece and Nottingham’s Willian Kerlin have seen plenty action this so far this season.

Despite their long day of travel, the Panthers quickly took the lead after fighting off some early pressure from Dundee and Christophe Boivin was quickest to react to turn in the rebound from J.C. Brassard’s shot from the blueline, on 6 minutes.

However, the Stars swiftly responded and had the game tied through Philippe Sanche just 76 seconds later, but the home team then found their groove and went 2-1 ahead, in the 10th minute.

Dundee’s second goal came from Gabriel Desjardins as he and Alexandre Rangers cut through the Nottingham defence before Desjardins lifted his shot over the left shoulder of Kerlin.
