Kilmarnock Thunder enters the weekend with momentum following their recent triumph over the league leaders, Aberdeen Lynx. However, they face a tough challenge against the Edinburgh Capitals, currently sitting in 2nd place. Despite some recent setbacks, the Capitals have a history of success against Thunder, winning two out of their last three encounters. With only a 3-point gap separating them from the Aberdeen Lynx, the Capitals are determined to maintain their competitive edge, while Thunder, positioned 5th in the league, could till be title contenders if they continue their form.

Meanwhile, North Ayrshire Wild prepares to clash with the Paisley Pirates. Despite the Pirates holding a comfortable 16-point lead over Wild, the latter has shown they’re capable of upsetting the odds, having secured both their victories this season against the Paisley side. Can Wild defy expectations once again and disrupt the Pirates‘ plans?

In another pivotal matchup, the Kirkcaldy Kestrels travel north to face the Aberdeen Lynx. With only 6 points separating the two teams, every play will be crucial in this encounter. While Lynx have the edge with two wins out of three meetings this season, the Kestrels are determined to close the gap and keep the pressure on. A win for either side could have significant implications for their standings in the league.

The Dundee Tigers and Dundee Comets renew their fierce rivalry in a highly anticipated derby matchup. With Comets holding the advantage with two wins in their last three encounters, both teams will leave it all on the ice, not just for points but also for local bragging rights in front of their passionate home crowds.
