Nottingham Panthers forward Jordan Fox says his team will not change the way they play even though their Elite League title challenge is all but over.
Tuesday's loss to rivals Sheffield Steelers and a double defeat at home by leaders Belfast Giants at the weekend mean they are 10 points off the top.
Fox told BBC Radio Nottingham: "We're all competitors, we all want to win every game, league title or not."
Panthers face Sheffield again at home on Saturday.
Fox added: "For the last couple of weeks we really haven't been playing at the top of our game and I think that hurt us going into the Belfast weekend.
"I think this was a big wake-up call these last three games.
"Even if we don't win the league title we want to win the play-offs, we want to win the Challenge Cup and we want to win games."
Panthers are currently in third place in the Elite League.
