Huge Game 4 tonight...
And yes - I know, I know, they are all huge this time of year.
A Bulldog win and they have a 3-1 stranglehold heading home for Game 5 Thursday.
A King win and its a 2-2 series and it becomes a best of 3 with the Bulldogs holding home ice advantage. If that is the case, you know the Kings will be thinking of going and stealing one at the Dog Pound with a chance to clinch at home.
But that is all a ways off still, the focus for now is TONIGHT.
For both teams the focus might be the same. Work on staying out of the box, and work on the penalty kill, as both powerplays have been
And most importantly in my opinion, work on being more desperate and more hungry than the other guys.
This time of year, when the teams playing are so good already, more often the difference is the fire underneath you and inside of you, while also maintaining the ability to remain composed.
While there is still work to be done, I like what the Dogs have shown so far in that regard. This playoff run has been all about lessons, and ups and downs for the Dogs.
Here's hoping they bring the level of intensity needed tonight, as you can bet the Kings will come out with everything they have to no go to the Pound down 3-1, much like the Dogs did in Game 2 to not head to Powell River down 0-2.
I know that there are more Bulldog fans coming over on the boat today, and they are threatening to be noisy. Just what I want to hear, and just what the guys might need. Gotta love the Dog fans.
Get it all on 93.3 The Peak FM tonight with Rick Schievink and myself with the pregame show at 6:45 with the play-by-play to follow at 7. Or possibly 6:58 like last night, haha!
Penticton Vees play-by-play voice Ryan Pinder will be my second intermission guest.
That's it for now. Off to Breakfast.
