There is a good chance that the Dogs might be missing two of their top three scorers tonight and through the weekend, with Yan Kalashnikov still possibly out with his aforementioned "Upper Body" injury and Dylan Nowakowski most likely out with the same ailment after the vicious check he took on Saturday night from Valik Chichkin of the Langley Rivermen. The Dogs will most likely also be missing their emotional and physical leader in Trent Dorais, who is banged up and battling a "Lower Body" injury.
So its STEP UP time for someone - or better yet EVERYONE on the roster, if the team is going to have success this weekend. The Dogs are just 6 points out of a Playoff spot and they hold games in hand on every team in the Top 4 of the Conference. And how many points are up for grabs over the weekend? Yep, 6.
