Glasgow Clan vs Nottingham Panthers

Braehead Arena, Glasgow (face off 7.30pm)

Ticket details: Glasgow Clan Tickets

Webcast: Clan TV Live

Covid guidelines and information: See below

It will be a Friday night like no other as Nottingham Panthers come to Glasgow for the latest meeting between the teams, plus it’s Pride Night as well to make it even more spectacular.

Sadly, Scottish Government restrictions prevents a bigger crowd from coming to join in, but those in attendance will no doubt do an incredible job of spending the positive message that ice hockey is, indeed, for all.

The Panthers have enjoyed a mini revival since making the decision to part with head coach Tim Wallace and with Mark Matheson in interim charge, will look to build on that further.

Three wins on the bounce has started to restore some confidence and should Panthers continue on their upward trajectory, Matheson could well be handed the reins at least until the end of the season.

For Clan, they came up short against Cardiff Devils on Wednesday, but it’s been a decent week performance-wise for the players.  Victory here will be a welcome boost, especially on such a big night.

PLAYER TO WATCH

#9 Robbie Baillargeon

Baillargeon’s return to the Elite League has been a largely positive one since signing for Nottingham Panthers and his points production has been as decent as it was the first time around.

Some of you may remember his spell at Milton Keynes Lightning during their second or two seasons in the top flight in 2018/19, where he picked up 49 points in his 51 appearances.

Only Christophe Boivin is ahead of him on points, but that takes nothing away for the eye for goal he has and ability to find the gaps to deliver the blows needed to help his team.

His five points in three games since Tim Wallace, who he worked with at MK, have been instrumental in their recent upturn in form and will be looked upon again to deliver as Panthers aim for a higher league placing.
