BRITISH FORWARD HOOK ON TARGET AS PANTHERS BEAT STORM

British forwards Lewis Hook and Ollie Betteridge were on the scoresheet as Nottingham Panthers secured their first victory of the Elite Series by beating Manchester Storm 3-1 at the National Ice Centre.

Christophe Boivin put Panthers ahead after only 49 seconds, before Ciaran Long scored a tournament-high fourth goal on a five-on-three powerplay (6:41).

Betteridge tipped in a blueline shot from Brendan Ellis at 25:40 (powerplay) and former GB junior Hook fired in his first goal of the competition 11 seconds into the third period (40:11).
