Elite League: Manchester 5-1 Belfast Giants
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.
