Here's the audio from our broadcast last night of the Matt Hatch goal. Fans at the Pound have been waiting for that goal since 2006-2007, and it was nice to hear that ROAR.

Now, we just want much much more tonight!
Don't forget to WEAR RED.
All of the pregame festivities kick off tonight at 4:30 with Jolie McMullan from THE PEAK broadcasting LIVE starting at 4:30 when the pregame party kicks off in the parking lot.
Lazy Mike and the Rockin' Recliners will play live, Serious Coffee will be giving away free coffee, and the 3 on 3 "All Ages" Ball Hockey Tournament will also go in the parking lot with the winners and runners up winning tickets to tonight's game.
So get there early, be equipped to play, be good sports and have lots of fun!
I only saw Manther for a couple minutes last night, but they were great.
The CROWD last night was great. I thought you were a little nervous (to be expected) in the third when the Clippers were leading 3-1, but remember, that's when the team needs you most.
You were AWESOME when the Clippers scored their first and second goals, you just stood up and cheered the guys on anyway. Just great great great support!
The Dogs will need more of the same effort tonight if they want to head to Nanaimo with a 1-1 series. Sure there were some mistakes, but it's hard to complain or worry about what you are doing when you out shoot your opponents by more than 2 to 1 margin.
At the same time, the Clippers did a picture perfect job of making the most of their chances - the Dogs need to do the same.
I would expect the Clippers to be better tonight. While they surely have confidence in Boivin in net, I don't think that they like their chances too much if they give up 50 shots a night.
Should be another fun one at the 'Pound, we'll see you tonight!
One last note here - this is pretty cool. I was outside for a brief moment to hear Manther performing live. I was surprised to hear a "Go Dogs Go" song that I thought was pretty cool. I wished at the time that I had a recording of it....after the game, I found out that it was played live Monday afternoon on 93.3 The Peak FM
on Jolie's Afternoon Drive show.
Great job Manther and Rockwell!

1 Billion Dollars or Free Tickets? With how full the building was last night, I don't know, maybe a Bulldog ticket is worth a Billion Dollars? HA.
