Nottingham Panthers did their title chances - and that of Sheffield Steelers - the power of good last night.
Matthew Myers and Evan Mosey both scored twice to lead Panthers to a 6-1 victory over fast-fading Cardiff Devils at the National Ice Centre.
The result meant joint top of the League Devils lost their game in hand over Sheffield - and remain locked on the same points tally with them.
A win for Steelers tonight over Fife Flyers, will see them go top (7pm.)
It's been a calamitous time for the Welsh, it was their fourth straight loss.
Like Braehead Clan, earlier, they appear to be choking.
Nottingham are in fourth, four points behind the pair, with a game in hand.
Myers' 14th and 15th goals of the season put Panthers 2-0 up before Joey Martin got the Devils back into the game heading into the first intermission.
Mosey, Franklin MacDonald and Geoff Waugh potted goals in the middle session as Panthers pulled clear before Mosey's second wrapped it up early in the third.
