Derrick Walser has challenged his Belfast Giants players to maintain the standard set in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Dundee Stars.

The Giants scored three unanswered goals to complete a comfortable victory and now Walser wants to see that level of performance repeated when they face the Nottingham Panthers at the SSE Arena tonight.

Victory this evening would see the Giants cut the gap between themselves and Elite League leaders Cardiff to single figures with 10 games to go and with three meetings against the Devils to come, title hopes would remain alive.

Walser's thoughts, however, are starting to turn to Tuesday's Challenge Cup semi-final second leg against the Devils with the Play-offs to follow.

"The third period against Dundee was the best period we've played in a while," said Giants player-coach Walser.

"We just want to build off that third period on Friday and come out with the same type of performance, see where we go as a group and get ready for Challenge Cup on Tuesday and Play-offs."
