Dogs host Caps tonight on "Teddy Bear Toss" night!
If you look at the BCHL standings - this one sure threw me for a loop this AM - the Dogs show a record of 7-20-2-2. For some reason, they weren't credited with an OT loss Saturday against Coquitlam, but instead a Regulation loss. The Dogs can ill afford having points taken away from them and/or not being given the points they earn. Not sure if it's a clerical or electronic error, or what's up!
These teams met a week ago tonight, in a wild and crazy game...or a wild and crazy third period? I don't think anyone on the planet would have predicted a 6-0 Final score after a 0-0 scoreline after 40 minutes, but that's why I always say to expect the unexpected. It's another lesson you hope would sink in on consistency and playing a full 60.
The Dogs were last in action on Saturday night when they fell 5-4 to Coquitlam in OT, pulling them back within six points of the Capitals.
The Caps haven't played since last Friday, but they have still been busy as they made several changes to their line up, moving Steen Cooper (F), Taki Pantziris (D), and Mitch (F) and Rylan Ball (D) to Penticton, West Kelowna and Trail respectively. In return the Caps received Matt Berry-Lamontagna (D), Clint Filbrandt (D), Ambrose Firkus (F), Valik Chichkin (D) and Future Considerations.
Holy moly that's some moves!
