On Sunday Fife chalked up their second win in Nottingham - this time a 2-1 overtime victory.

The game was goal-less until late in the second period when Josh Tetlow beat Shane Owen with a wrist shot.

They held that lead until 45:44. Carter levelled.

Panthers were handed a powerplay heading into the final 10 minutes when Lawrence was ejected for boarding.

In overtime, JC Brassard coughed the puck up to Michael McNicholas who set up Greg Chase for the winner.

Flyers have a one-game weekend looming, with Belfast Giants visiting Kirkcaldy on Sunday evening.
