Dogs @ Express this afternoon, USA vs Canada East for WJAC Gold, Inside the new Alberni Athletic Hall
It's the first meeting in Coquitlam between the teams since the Epxress moved to Burnaby for the 2005-2006 season.
The Express entered play this week losers of 8 in a row. What a difference a couple of games makes - you sure don't have to tell the Bulldogs about that - as the Express are now winners of two straight as they beat Nanaimo on Wednesday and Langley on Friday night. They will be well rested, having last night off. The Dogs will be fatigued, playing their third game in two and a half days, and their fourth in just five days.
It will take a monumental effort for the Dogs to come out of this one with two points, so lets hope they can find the gas to bring it for 60 minutes. Consistency has been the biggest factor in this four game streak, and this is the biggest test yet of the season to try and play a consistent game. This one is a challenge to say the least. Maybe it's what this team needs though? One can only hope.
Catch the pregame show from the Coquitlam Sports Centre at 1:45 today, with the play-by-play to follow at 2:00.
Former Bulldog Scott Lewan will be my 2nd Intermission guest.
