Alberni Valley Bulldogs won their second in a row overall and on this road trip with a 4-2 win tonight in Burnaby.
The Dogs made things maybe harder on themselves than they had to be as they had a 3-0 lead early in the second but they allowed the Express back into the game with a shorthanded goal and a 5 on 3 goal to make it 3-2 Dogs after two.
The AVB took a 1-0 lead just over two minutes into the game when Mark MacMillan and Mitch MacMillan raced away on a 2 on 0 breakaway. Mark did a perfect job of driving the net and faking a deke to his backhand before sliding the puck over to Mitch to score into the open net. It was 2-0 Dogs short of eight minutes into the game with Josh Mitchell and Kevin Ross setting up David Dziurzynski on the power play. Warren Muir continued his strong play as of late as he found the net early in the second off a Johnny Rogic power play set up for the 3-0 advantage.
The game was won on a big 5 on 3 kill for the Dogs with 10 minutes go to in the third where Frank Slubowski was solid and his defenders around him did a great job to clear loose pucks to hold the 3-2 lead.
Next up - the first ever game for the Dogs at the new Langley Event Centre tomorrow at 2pm to finish off the road trip. Get it all on THE PEAK starting with the pregame show at 1:45.
Way to go Dogs. Now do it again tomorrow!
And I forgot about this one, sorry I didn't have time to get it up before the game. The Bill Copeland Arena for those that haven't seen it before!
