Dogs visit Grizzlies in do-or-die Game 5
It's another series going the distance for the Bulldogs as they are heading down to Victoria tonight for a winner-take-all Game 5 tonight at Bear Mountain Arena. You know the Surrey Eagles have to be loving this series going the distance, sitting pretty after sweeping the Chilliwack Chiefs on Monday night.
The Bulldogs will again be buoyed by their supporters on the road tonight, with one fan bus already sold out as of 30 minutes after the game last night. Get in touch with the Dogs office today if you want to get on a bus to head down to the game!
If you are making your way down on your own - I look forward to seeing you there, and bring some noise with ya!
The Bulldogs have obviously been in this position before, winning Game 5 in Nanaimo 2-1 last Wednesday (is that really when it was?) for the reverse sweep to win that series 3-2.
The Grizzlies have also been in this position at home, eliminating the Kings in OT in Game 5 last week at Bear Mountain Arena.
It's incredible how thin the line can be between winning and losing. A bounce either way, and both these teams could have been long gone and on their way home already and we wouldn't have had the chance to witness all this fun and madness. Thanks for battling boys, and keep 'er going. I have said something along these lines already - appreciate the moment, but don't get lost in it. The chance may never come again.
