In the Central Division this week, the 1st place Aberdeen Wings are rolling with a 10-point lead in the division as they take their four-game winning streak on the road to St. Cloud to face a Blizzard squad that has dropped six straight. It is a tight battle in the middle of the pack for 2nd through 4th place and the battle of North Dakota resumes this weekend with the 3rd place Bismarck Bobcats and 4th place Minot Minotauros engaging in a home-and-home series this weekend, separated by two points in the standing. The 2nd place Austin Bruins are outside of the division to take on Chippewa from the Midwest and the Wilderness are also facing a Midwest Division opponent in the Janesville Jets.
 
In the East Division, all seven teams are in action, including a battle of the top two teams as 1st place New Jersey hosts the 2nd place Johnstown Tomahawks.
