IceDiggers home Friday and Sunday

The Alpena IceDiggers return to Northern Lights Arena on Friday versus the Marquette Rangers and again on Sunday to take on the Traverse City North Stars.

Friday faceoff is set for 7:00 p.m. On Sunday, the puck will drop at 5:00 p.m.

"These are two real big games for us," Alpena coach-GM Kenny Miller said. "We need to make sure we put a full sixty minutes together both nights."

Marquette makes their fourth appearance at NLA, while Traverse City comes to town for the fourth time as well. The Rangers (19-10-2) lead the IceDiggers by four points in the North Division standings. Traverse City (11-14-6) comes into the contest trailing Alpena by eight points.

Alpena (17-12-2) is riding a six-game unbeaten streak in regulation play.
