The Sudbury Wolves will hit the road this weekend for a trio of games, which will see them face the Niagara IceDogs tonight, the Erie Otters on Feb. 2 and the Brampton Battalion on Feb. 3.

The Wolves will then face the Brampton Battalion on Feb. 8 in a rematch in Sudbury, where the Pack will put their 13-game home regulation unbeaten streak to the test.

The Wolves currently sit just two points in front of the Battalion heading into this weekend's play. An all-out battle between the two clubs is expected as they fight for home-ice advantage throughout the first round of the playoffs.

The Battalion are led in scoring by rookie standout Blake Clarke, who has posted 39 points in 48 games this season.

The Wolves return to the ice Feb. 9 for Vale's Sudbury Saturday Night, featuring another can’t-miss divisional rivalry, as the Wolves face off against the Mississauga Steelheads.

The Steelheads are led up front by Riley Brace, who has posted an impressive 59 points in 47 games this season. The Toronto Maple Leaf’s 2011 first-round pick, Stuart Percy, patrols the back end for the Steelheads and is a key contributor at both ends of the ice.
