The 9th February is a date that sticks in the mind of most Steelers and Nottingham Panthers supporters.
Friday 9th February 2001 was the night the Steelers were supposed to go into Nottingham and win the league. They would do that two days later in London. The 9th of February was to become the date of the “Battle of Lower Parliment Street”
Greg Hadden and Dennis Vial started it, Scottie Allison and Barry Nieckar concluded the night’s entertainment.
Allison Vs. Nieckar – one of several battles they had that night.
Scott Metcalfe and Chris Baxter played their part as did Mike O’Neil and Eion McInerney.
Mike Blaisdell sent the troops into battle, Peter Woods and Alex Dampier returned fire.
Scott Allison climbed the glass to get out of the penalty box. What a night we had.
Well, this Saturday is also the 9th February and the Nottingham Panthers are the visitors to the Fly DSA (Sheffield) Arena.
