The Bulldogs (12-9-0-4, Tied 2nd Island) head down Island for the second Friday in a row, this time to visit the BIG STICK and the Cowichan Valley Capitals (6-13-0-2, 5th Island) for the fourth meeting between the teams so far this season, but the first since the first week of October.
The first three games have been wildly unpredictable, a good lesson to expect the unexpected. 8-7 Bulldogs in double OT, 6-4 Capitals, 3-1 Bulldogs, with the last two meetings also being in Duncan.
I sure hope the Dogs are smart enough to not take the Capitals lightly based on their spot in the standings. With the parity in the league this year, if you show up not ready to play, it's going to show, and it's going to cost you and it has certainly cost the Bulldogs this season.
Yes the Caps are in 5th and they are a ways back. However, consider that they have games in hand on everyone in the Conference, including four on the Bulldogs. Also consider that the Caps are coming off a big double OT win and they will be feeling good, with the win snapping a four game losing streak. The four losses on that streak were by a COMBINED four goals.
It's always a tough one at the BIG STICK, here's hoping it's a good one tonight!
