It's time to wrap up the USHL regular season. This game doesn't mean anything to either team in terms of playoff positioning -- the Ice have wrapped up the #3 seed, the Lumberjacks the #5 -- and both teams have pretty potent offenses. Expect two teams to do a little bit of fine-tuning before the playoffs and possibly give some players a breather. The Ice have a couple of individual accomplishments on the line. Blake Coleman has all but wrapped up the USHL's scoring title and will undoubtedly lead the league in +/-. Daniil Tarasov is tied with Dubuque's Ryan Gaudreau for the league goal-scoring lead with 36. The Ice will end up leading the league in scoring. Muskegon has won two of its last five, so it has been playing better than it had been when it last visited Indianapolis on a five-game skid and was handed a 5-1 defeat.
