Head Coach: Peter Russell

With Lightning suffering from a festive slump, the team are currently on a five game losing streak in the league, with their last victory being the QF 1st leg almost a fortnight ago. That being said, there is no better time or occasion for the team to raise their game, break their streak and get the season back on track, with what would surely be a monumental victory if they can see this through.

Lightning's CC and overall top point scorer is forward Denny Kearney, who has registered 6 goals + 6 assists in 7 cup games, adding a further 7 goals and 22 assists in 30 league games.

Starting NM Miika Wiikman was the notable absence from our New Years Day loss to Cardiff Devils, with rumours ranging from leg injuries, to sickness bugs to simply being rested ahead of the cup game. Either way, a well rested, fully fit Miika, producing anther phenomenal performance is likely to be a major requirement for success.

Previous meetings:

Panthers 4 (OT) - 3 MKL (EIHL) - Highlights
MKL 3 - 5 Panthers (EIHL) - Highlights
MKL 2 - 1 Panthers (Challenge Cup) - Highlights

Doors open at The Motorpoint Arena at 1830, with face off expected around 1930

I will be travelling, however due to work commitments I doubt I'll be at the arena much before face off, but will provide updates asap. As always I'm sure the usual updates will be available for those with Twitter @MKL_Matchnight

Unfortunately Panthers do not provide a live webcast of their games

Well the latest “press” release from Pete Russell seems to suggest that we will be without 2, or potentially 3, “top end guys” for tonight’s match!
