Two teams neck-to-neck in the PJHL's Bob Dybvig Division will share the ice tonight in Saskatoon as they battle for sole possession of fourth place.

The West Central Rage are on the road this evening when they meet up with the Saskatoon Royals at 7:45 p.m. from the Rod Hamm Arena in Saskatoon.

Currently, the Royals are resting in fourth place with 33 points to the Rage's 32 points. Although, the Saskatoon club hasn't been able to push themselves farther away from the Rage in the standings over the last little due to a three-game losing skid.

For West Central, they have won three of their last seven January games; three of those losses are from the Delisle Chiefs including last Friday's 6-2 Rage loss in Kerrobert. But how have the two teams stacked up against each other so far this season?

December 5th was the last time the Royals and Rage met. West Central went on to dominate the game in front of their home crowd on their way to an 8-3 victory. The Rage lead the season series 2-1 heading into tonight's contest with one more meeting after tonight for their regular season finale on February 17th.

By the way things are shaping up in the division standings, there's a good chance these two will meet in the Survivor Series next month when the playoffs begin. The Rage and Royals played each other in the first round last year, which ended in West Central sweeping the series 2-0 as the third seeded team in the North.

Either way, fans can expect quality hockey between these two competitive rosters as they fight for positioning in the table before the postseason.
