Belfast suffered a second Elite League defeat in two days after losing 5-1 to Manchester Storm in Altrincham.

Nottingham Panthers beat the Giants in a shootout on Friday night but this was more one-sided affair.

Darian Dziurzynski and Jack Prince netted for Storm before Colin Shields pulled one back 20 seconds before the end of the first period.

Third-period strikes from Mario Valery-Trabucco, Dziurzynski and Paul Swindlehurst sealed Manchester's win.

It was another blow to Belfast's title hopes following the shootout loss to the Panthers at the National Ice Centre.
