Coach Derrick Walser critical of Belfast Giants' slow start

Belfast Giants player-coach Derrick Walser says his team made a sluggish start in Saturday's Elite League defeat at home to the Nottingham Panthers.

However, he felt his side dominated the second and third periods and were unlucky with a referee's call which resulted in the Giants being reduced to three men late in the game.

With the two-man advantage, the Panthers scored a late goal to win 3-2 and avenge Friday's match which Belfast had won 4-3.
