The North American Hockey League will always have games that are intriguing. In this new feature we will profile the Top Five based on our weekly rankings.

Fairbanks Ice Dogs (#9) at Janesville Jets (#10) – The Ice Dogs visit Janesville tonight after playing six straight against Kenai River. The winner of this one will also move ahead of the other in the standings. Look for a tight contest tonight as these two teams will both come into the game very well prepared.

Lone Star Brahmas (#14) at Amarillo Bulls (#2) – The Bulls are on a roll while Lone Star has been going into the wrong direction as of late. Anything can happen when these two teams get together and tonight will be no exception. Look for a all-out war in Amarillo.

Minnesota Wilderness (#12) at Aberdeen Wings (#4) – Both teams have wins in seven of their last ten games going into tonight’s contest. Aberdeen is a much better home team than the Wilderness are on the road.

Minot Minotauros (#7) at Bismarck Bobcats (#6) – Rivalries, we absolutely love them. We can toss the standings and win/loss records out the bus window anytime that Minot and Bismarck must face each other. There are heated rivalries, hated rivalries, and whatever kind of insanity comes into play for these two on the ice. 

Johnstown Tomahawks (#1) at Jamestown Rebels (#8) – Mathematically speaking this is the game of the night. If the Rebels can’t put an end to the Tomahawks seventeen game win streak, I’m not sure any team from the East Division will be able to.
