In the Central Division, it is a full slate of games and two winning streaks are on the line. The 1st place Aberdeen Wings look to extend their seven-game winning streak with a three-game set against the Brookings Blizzard with the opening game in Brookings and the last two in Aberdeen. The Austin Bruins are also riding a seven-game winning streak and sitting just one point behind Aberdeen in the standings as they will face the Minnesota Wilderness this weekend in a three-game home-and-home set. The final series features the battle of North Dakota as Bismarck and Minot clash as both are trying to snap small losing skids.
 
There is just one series this weekend in the East Division as the Johnstown Tomahawks look to close in on clinching a playoff spot as the host the Northeast Generals for two games on Sunday and Monday. The rest of the division is idle this weekend.
 
In the Midwest Division, it is also a light schedule. The Janesville Jets look to gain ground on 1st place as they put their three-game winning streak on the line at home against the Kenai River Brown Bears. The other series features the Fairbanks Ice Dogs in Chippewa to take on the Steel in a two-game series. The Minnesota Magicians and Springfield Jr. Blues are both idle.
 
In the South Division, the red-hot Corpus Christi IceRays will put their 8-game winning streak on the line this weekend as they travel to Shreveport for two games against the Mudbugs with the two teams tied for 2nd place with 35 points each. The Lone Star Brahmas are in Odessa to take on the Jackalopes with both teams on the outside of the playoffs and needing wins and points. The final series takes place on Sunday and Monday as the 1st place Amarillo Bulls host the Topeka Pilots for two games. At 20-3-4, the Bulls have the 2nd best record in the NAHL.
