Clippers top Dogs 3-1
No scoring in the first period, shots favour the Dogs 10-6.
Bulldogs open the scoring at 12:01 of the second on the power play, as Jared Wilson finishes a nice passing play between Kurt Gosselin and Hunter Stewart.
Clippers tie it at 1-1 on an odd-man rush as Brendan Taylor one-times a cross-ice pass home from Bo Brauer. Scott Prier also deserved an assist at 15:02.
Clippers had a great chance to go ahead on a man-advantage shortly afterwards, but Brad Rebagliati came across and robbed Anthony Sabitski who had an open net.
Shots in the second were 13-4 Clippers, for a 19-14 advantage after 40 minutes.
The Clippers take the lead in the back half of the third just after the Dogs had killed off a 5 on 3 as Devin Brosseau converts from the side of the net on a nice set up by Josh McArdle and Scott Prier at 13:51 of the third to make 2-1.
An unfortunate giveaway shortly afterwards would seal the Dogs fate as Zach Sabatini set up Jacob Hanlon in the slot with 5:02 left to make it a 3-1 final.
Final shots were in favour of the Clippers 31-23.
I had Nanaimo at 1 for 9 on the power play and the Dogs at 1 for 5.
