NAHL Weekend Preview

February 8, 2019
With the USA Hockey trade deadline now past, NAHL teams can get back to the final push towards the last two months of the regular season.
 
The NAHL Top Prospects Tournament is just a little more than a week away, but this weekend offers up another opportunity for teams to gain ground in the standings as the Robertson Cup Playoffs are now appearing on the horizon.
 
This weekend features 23 games for fans to enjoy.

In the Central Division, the Aberdeen Wings hold a 15 point lead atop the division and look to add to that as they have a home-and-home series with the Brookings Blizzard. While not mathematically eliminated, the Blizzard are 27 points out of the final playoff spot with just 18 games remaining. The real drama lies in the other two series as the 2nd place Austin Bruins travel to Bismarck to face the Bobcats. Bismarck is three points out of the final playoff spot with 20 games to go. The other series is a battle of 3rd and 4th place as the Minot Minotauros travel to face the Minnesota Wilderness. Minot has won three in a row, while the Wilderness have dropped three straight.
 
In the East, the Johnstown Tomahawks became the first team in the NAHL to clinch a playoff spot last weekend, as they now turn their sights on a division title with three home games against the Maryland Black Bears. Maryland is five points out of the final playoff spot with just 17 games to go. The other series will feature a battle of 2nd and 3rd place teams as the Jamestown Rebels host the New Jersey Titans. Both Northeast and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton are idle this weekend.
 
In the Midwest Division, the Springfield Jr. Blues look to continue their momentum as they look to build off a 4-1 win on Thursday night over the 1st place Minnesota Magicians with two more games in Richfield on Friday and Saturday. The Jr. Blues sit in a dead heat with the Janesville Jets for 3rd place with the Jets on the road this weekend in the battle for the Milk Can as they face Wisconsin rival, the Chippewa Steel. Both Alaska teams are in action at home against South Division teams as Fairbanks looks to close the gap on 1st place with a series against the Topeka Pilots, who have dropped five in a row. Meanwhile, the Corpus Christi IceRays hold onto a slim lead in the South for the final playoff spot and will be in Kenai River this weekend to take on the Brown Bears.
 
In the South, with both Corpus Christi and Topeka in the Alaskan territory, the other four teams square off in two big series including the 1st place Amarillo Bulls just a couple of wins away from securing a playoff spot as they play host to the 3rd place Lone Star Brahmas in the ‘Battle of the Cattle.’ The other series has the Odessa Jackalopes in Shreveport to take on the Mudbugs.
