The Odyssey Arena played host to the clash and first blood went to the home side, with Noah Clarke netting for the Giants just after 14 minutes gone.

While it looked like they'd take that lead into the second period, the Panthers went level barely more than a minute before the break courtesy of a David Ling goal.

Belfast's second came via a powerplay effort from Gregory Stewart, but seconds later Nottingham were also back on the scoresheet through Bruce Graham.

And the goalless third period left the teams facing sudden death overtime and then a penalty shootout, with Robby Sandrock eventually firing home the crucial winner.

The result means the Giants extend their winning streak to four games and top the Elite League table.
