The Newcastle North Stars head south of the border to play the Melbourne Ice on Saturday and the Melbourne Mustangs on Sunday in what could be a test run for the Finals weekend.
The two games have many similarities with the psychological edge a major factor.
The Ice will be looking to defeat the North Stars thus avoiding them in the Semi-Finals and display a show of dominance at home.
The Mustangs will be looking for a big home win to finish the season and take revenge for the previous weeks loss to Newcastle in Newcastle.
Both the Ice and the Mustangs are hard to beat at home and no teams want to go into the Finals on the back of a loss.
The North Stars have the fire power to win both games yet it would appear the Mustangs are more of a threat than the Ice but this is season 2013 and nothing is assured.
