Sheffield Steelers remain two points behind in second after they edged a 5-4 win over Nottingham Panthers, while - a point further back - Braehead Clan recorded their fifth straight win as they shutout Coventry Blaze 3-0.

Mathew Sisca scored a hat-trick and five points, while Matt Paton found the net twice and added two assists in Manchester Storm's 7-6 win over Edinburgh Capitals that saw them leapfrog the Scottish side at the foot of the table.
