The Bulldogs wrap up 2011 tonight as they visit the Kings in Powell River with a special start time of 5:00, allowing the Dogs to get home tonight and fans to get out of the game early to ring in 2012.
Catch the pregame show on Boston Pizza Bulldogs Hockey on 93.3 The Peak at 4:45 this afternoon. Tonight's 2nd Intermission guest is Eddie Gregory, Play by Play voice of the Coquitlam Express, who's currently at the World Juniors calling Canada's games for Fast Hockey...what an experience that must be - I am green with envy!
As the puck drops in Powell River it also drops in Edmonton as Canada takes on Team USA, but the game doesn't mean much as the Americans have already been eliminated.
Have a fun New Year's Eve - there are several celebrations happening tonight that I know of. Revolution Productions has the Lance Lapointe Band performing and The Peak's Jolie McMullan MC'ing at John Paul II, Polly's Pub has live entertainment and there is also a celebration at Cherry Creek Hall.
Get out and have fun, but most importantly BE SAFE and BE SMART - do not get behind the wheel, don't let a friend get behind the wheel, and don't get in a vehicle with someone who has been drinking. Call a cab, a friend, an enemy, walk, crawl, run, WHATEVER, just DON'T DRIVE!
Last but not least - don't have too much fun or you may not enjoy the Winter Classic tomorrow morning as former Bulldog Harry Zolnierczyk and the Philadelphia Flyers play host to the New York Rangers outside at Citizen's Bank Park in Philly
