The Dryden GM Ice Dogs will be watching the SIJHL scoreboard closely Friday night.
The Ice Dogs can secure a first round bye with an English River Miners win.
The Miners face the Thunder Bay North Stars at the Cochenour Arena at 7:30.
Dryden GM is also hoping for an upset as the Minnesota Iron Rangers face Thief River Falls.
A Norskies win moves them back into first place.
