THE WEEK AHEAD: The final month begins

March 4, 2024

It was three points and 13 goals from a busy weekend for Glasgow Clan, sponsored by Aspray Glasgow West, and there’s no let up in the start of a brand new seven-day cycle.

Results over the weekend mean Clan have now taken a step up to seventh place and continue to look up, but the two teams coming up will do their bit to make sure there’s no progress.

We’ll dig into those games shortly, but here’s what you may have missed in recent days:

Manchester Storm vs Glasgow Clan (Elite Ice Hockey League, face off 7:15pm)

The meeting between the Storm and the Clan makes for an interesting contest after Manchester picked up maximum points for the second weekend in a row.

Their home win over Dundee Stars on Saturday was made even better when they added two road points at runaway league leaders Sheffield Steelers on Sunday.

While Clan notched up three points of their own, taking on the Storm on their patch is never a fixture to be taken lightly, and could spark a big weekend if Jason Morgan’s men are able to succeed in Altrincham.

Glasgow Clan vs Nottingham Panthers (Elite Ice Hockey League, face off 5:00pm)

Panthers are back in Glasgow two weeks after shipping nine goals in a 9-3 loss – their first in Braehead Arena in five years and no doubt see this as a chance to erase that from memory.

Nottingham have battled and scrapped their way back into the play-off fight at a time when things looked down and out, but despite two losses at the weekend, they can still remain in the hunt.

It’s a game that could provide another twist in this unpredictable fight for the top eight, but with 25 goals scored in Clan’s last two home games, you can be sure there will be some offence in this one.
