It's a very critical weekend for the Bobcats to get back in the hunt in the division. 

The Minot Minotauros come into Bismarck tonight only one point out of first place in the division which should pose a challenge to the Bobcats that can pay off in the long run.

The Bobcats are just two points behind Minot and play them twice this weekend in a very important home and home challenge. The Central Division is very tight with both teams under four points behind division leader Aberdeen, so one would expect a hard fought battle tonight and tomorrow.

In the conference standings, Minot and Bismarck lay at sixth and seventh respectively with a golden chance to get into the top five for favorable playoff seeding.

In the season series, Minot Leads Bismarck at 3-2 but of course, that could change this weekend. Both teams matchup really well against each other.
