Dogs host Caps for New Year's Eve tilt TONIGHT
Should be a fun one tonight as 2012 comes to an end with the Bulldogs (17-11-1-5, 2nd Island) hosting the Cowichan Valley Capitals (7-19-0-2, 5th Island) at the Dog Pound.
Great game from the Bulldogs Saturday night in Powell River, as it was apparent early in the game that the Dogs were more ready to play than the Kings, leading to a 3-0 Dogs lead.
My hope tonight is that the Dogs are ready to play against the Capitals. It would be easy to take the Capitals lightly - no offense intended to the Caps in saying that, but they are a last placed team. The Dogs hopefully learned their lesson the last two times they played the Capitals. The first meeting was the last time the Capitals won a game, 6-2 over the Dogs in Duncan. A week later at the Dog Pound the Capitals came to play and the Dogs were flat for a large portion of the game. The Caps gave the Dogs everything they could handle, and had a 2-1 lead over two periods that the Dogs erased for a 3-2 win. The Caps have made some roster moves lately so I expect them to be excited to play tonight.
93.3 The Peak FM with the Pacific Chevrolet pregame show taking to the airwaves at 6:45 with the puck drop at 7:00 with myself and Bruce MacDonald calling the action.
Tonight's 2nd intermission guest is former Bulldog - and former Capital - Brian Kang, now in his Senior season at Concordia College
The first 400 fans entering the doors tonight will get a free pair of Thunder Stix so expect some extra noise.
Local businesses have also stepped up with a bunch of prizes, so anyone that enters the building tonight can enter to win FOR FREE!
Be safe, be smart tonight, don't drink and drive! Local police have stated if you are driving tonight, you WILL drive through a checkstop!
