The Grapes Count = Panthers 2 : Steelers 3 after overtime. They suck but seem to have "beating Panthers" in their DNA. Oh how I hope that I am wrong. Even with a team of no-marks they will play their aggressive forecheck chipping the puck behind our defence. I have seen World War One dreadnoughts turn quicker than Lepine, Billingsley and Henderson so expect Sheffield to win most races for the puck. Also expect them to win most battles along the boards in our defensive zone if last weekend is any guide. No doubt Guptill will cause them concerns but can see very little else in our arsenal to worry them. All hail Barrasso - the Steelers Saviour.
Nah Panthers to win this one,it’s being broadcast all around the world so be keen to impress. Only the biggest rivalry in the EIHL now though,strangely Europe seems to have disappeared ! Well done Calum. 👍😆

Has there ever been a more underwhelming Panthers v Steelers league game ? both teams struggling for form (Steelers arguably less so at the moment), both teams missing players, both teams having poor seasons and struggling to convince the fan base. Probably be a classic !!
