The Newcastle Rescue Northstars are on the road for most of August.
This weekend - August 3 and 4 - the Northstars are off to Western Australia to face Perth Thunder in a double header.
After four consecutive losses - two to league leaders CBR Brave, the Sydney Ice Dogs and Sydney Bears - and eight points away from clinching their 2019 AIHL Finals spot, the Northstars will be hunting for two wins in Perth this weekend.

Saturday's Perth Thunder v Newcastle Northstars game is the AIHL Fox Sports game of the week. It will not be live streamed.
