Dogs visit Eagles tonight
The roadtrip continues tonight for the Bulldogs (4-13-2-1, 5th Island) as they visit the Eagles (7-11-1-0, 4th Mainland) at the South Surrey Arena, the first trip here for the Dogs since last year's Coastal Conference Final. The Dogs will be trying for their fourth straight win after picking up their first road win of the season last night in Coquitlam. The Eagles will be trying to snap a three game losing streak as they hosted Prince George last night where they lost 3-2.
One of the interesting aspects of the South Surrey Arena is the 200x100 International/Olympic-sized ice sheet. There is more room to skate and create and generate offense, but also more room to get out of position and a further distance to get back into position. It's always fun to watch.
It's the second and final regular season meeting between the teams, after the Eagles took Game 1 by a 7-5 score at the Dog Pound on September 21st. For those that missed it, or forget, that one was as crazy as they come. The Eagles took a 3-0 lead 10 minutes into the game on three power play goals before the Dogs responded with three of their own (including two on the power play) before the second was seven minutes old to tie it at 3-3. The teams would exchange goals and go to the room tied at 4-4 after 40 minutes, before the Eagles scored three times before the third was two minutes old, a lead they wouldn't relinquish a second time.
