The Belfast Giants saw their Grand Slam dreams dashed as the Nottingham Panthers came from behind to win the Challenge Cup final 7-6 on aggregate after dominating the second leg 5-1.

They then went on to retain the trophy on penalties after Petr Kalus was the only player to score with Jeffrey Szwez, Kevin Saurette and Craig Peacock all missing for the Giants.

It was hugely disappointing after Paul Adey’s side had taken a 5-2 lead into Tuesday night’s clash in Nottingham but they never showed any of the form that has seen them dominate the league this season.
