Dogs top Clippers, Happy Hockey Day in Canada!
It was another full-team effort tonight, in a game where the Dogs never led until they scored the game winning goal.
Until the empty netter scored by Warren Muir that was engineered by Trent Dorais and Sam Mitchell, every Bulldog goal was scored by a MacMillan. Mark had the first two, and Mitch had the second two - 54 now in 53 for him.
The first goal by Mark was one of the prettiest individual efforts of the season.
Besides the two goals each brother scored, they also assisted on both of each others markers. If that isn't confusing enough, HAHA!
While the line of Hatch, Rogic and Lewis didn't score, they generated their fair share of chances. And the trio of Bailey, Eviston and Josh Mitchell also played a hard working and determined game.
I know it's not just me noticing it, so I'll just out and say it. How much has Josh Mitchell picked up his game over the last 3 or 4 contests?
He's hitting everything that moves, he's finding ways to win battles, he's reading the play well. I think it's just a case of a really focused guy lately who has coupled his high skill level with an increased work ethic. He just seems to bring something every shift, a steal, a play made, a good finished check. It's really hard to play like that but whatever he's done lately has really made him a fun player to watch.
And how about that great National Anthem by Kevin Ross' mom?
That's all I have for tonight. 1am and I'm back to the rink tomorrow morning!
Should be an interesting one tomorrow with the Spruce Kings and Capitals having what sounded like a VERY intriguing ending to the game in Duncan!
Oh yah - and it's technically TIM HORTON'S HOCKEY DAY IN CANADA NOW!
