Dogs host Kings, Harry Zolnierczyk interview today, Guns N' Hoses great success last night,

The Dogs are back on home ice today as they host the Powell River Kings for the first time this season. These teams last met October 7th in Powell River, a 4-1 Kings win. With the win the Kings ran their record to 6 and 0 on the season, and 5 and 0 on home ice. When they arrive at the Dog Pound today they will be playing their final game of a seven-game road trip, with a record of 7-4-1-0.

It has been tough for the Kings, as playing on the road always is (even though the Kings have made a habit the last couple of years of making it look easy) as they have a record of 1-4-1-0 over the six games, including a 1-0 loss in Langley last night to the Rivermen where they out shot their opponents 37-14.

Catch the pregame show on Boston Pizza Bulldogs Hockey on 93.3 The Peak FM at 2:15 with the puck drop and play-by-play to follow with Ace and myself at 2:30.

Former Bulldog, recent Flyer, and current Phantom Harry Zolnierczyk will be my 2nd Intermission guest, an interview that I have had countless requests for since it originally ran earlier this week on THE PEAK after Harry scored his 1st NHL goal in his NHL debut.

It's the final Home Game of October, which means the team will be giving fans the "jerseys off their backs" at the end of the game today. More specifically, their pink jerseys that they have worn all month at home (except against Chilliwack on Friday, some wires must have gotten crossed there) in support of their fight against Breast Cancer and in their efforts to raise awareness and funds for the cause.

The jerseys have been on display at the sponsor businesses for the better part of the month (that's Chase Van Allen's at 93.3 The Peak FM in the picture above) where fans have been making donations in turn for getting entry forms to win the jerseys today.

Do not forget, you must be present at the end of the game today to win! If your name is called and you don't make your way down to the ice to get your jersey presented to you by the player, they will call another name!

Last but not least, thanks to all the fans that came out for the Guns N' Hoses Battle of the Badges Charity Hockey game last night with the Port Alberni Fire Department taking on the Port Alberni RCMP. There was well over 350 fans in attendance - well more than their expectations. The people from the Port Alberni Association for Community Living were blown away with the support of the hockey fans here in town, reaching all their goals for last night. Way to go! Also a huge thanks to the Policemen and Firemen for their efforts in lacin' em up for the game and to Ron Paulson for being such an unbiased and professional referee....and the firemen for finding a couple of ringers for the third period!

I also got some great feedback on how much the fans enjoyed the Bulldog Players being out and about in the rink selling 50/50's and chatting with the fans - well done guys. People really do enjoy when you are approachable like that and you enjoy interacting with the fans like you apparently did from all accounts last night

Lars Hepso, maybe stay focused on hockey for now, HAHA!

See you at the rink!
