Nottingham Panthers errors were so costly - Neilson

Nottingham Panthers coach Corey Neilson says individual errors were to blame for his side's play-off quarter-final first-leg defeat in Braehead.

Panthers lost 3-0 on Tuesday night and now have it all to do in Saturday's second leg at the National Ice Centre.

Neilson told the club's website: "We dominated at times and played well for the first two periods, and for over 10 minutes in the third.

"But individual errors cost us and led to two soft goals."

Former Panthers forward Jade Galbraith, who has scored over 100 points this season, netted the opening goal 20 seconds into the third period and Lee Mitchell and Mike Wirll added the others.

"Now we know we've got a real battle on our hands on Saturday but we're not giving up on anything," Neilson added.

"It's not over 'til it's over. We'll have a different approach on Saturday in the second leg."
