Good morning from the Queen of Burnaby enroute to Powell River. A beautiful sunny day to make the crossing. As we departed, we were treated to a fighter jet of some sort from CFB Comox doing laps around the boat. It's one of the reasons I love going to the games in Powell River. It is always an adventure of sorts where you see some cool stuff. People that have followed the blog all season might remember the video of the Orcas I took on the Ferry ride coming back from Game 1 of the season.
Fast forward to today.
Its a huge early turning point in the Coastal Conference Finals with Game 3 tonight in Powell River. A 2-1 lead for either team after tonight has to be a powerful motivator, so I think we will see a heck of a contest tonight.
You can catch the pregame show at 6:45 on 93.3 The Peak FM with Rick Schievink and myself from the Powell River Rec Complex with the play-by-play to follow at 7:00.
BCHL Commissioner John Grisdale will be my Second Intermission guest as he talks about the experience of watching the first 2 games of this series in the Dog Pound, the Interior Final, the Burnaby Express move - and more, so be sure to tune in.
There is a nice number of Dogs fans on the boat this morning, hopefully more are coming this afternoon!
And here's hoping the people of Powell River will come out and support the Kings to get that great atmosphere back in that building. I have been lucky to have called a handful of games in the rink when there has been 1000 or more people in attendance and it makes for a fun experience and a great game.
Funny enough as I write this a young trio of kids just walked by me on the boat chanting "Kings Kings Kings" after they saw my Bulldog track jacket. Tell your friends to go to the games guys!!
