Bulldogs visit Silverbacks to kick off weekend swing...
Ah, quite the lovely sight here in Vernon - the outdoor rink!
The Bulldogs are indoors next door at the Priest Valley Arena getting in a game day skate to work the kinks out in advance of tonight's game in Salmon Arm, the first meeting of the season between the two teams. It was a nice travel day yesterday (beyond the snow) as we pulled in just after 7:00 and were able to get to Wesbild Centre before the end of the first period to catch the Vipers hosting the Trail Smoke Eaters
Both teams are coming off of wins entering play tonight - the Bulldogs have won three straight, the Silverbacks topped the defending National Champion Vees 3-2 in double OT on Saturday.
I have always enjoyed going to Salmon Arm - good atmosphere, good fans, and good people up in the Broadcast Booth - even if it's also the music/public address/jumbo tron booth and we are jammed elbow to elbow!
