HUGE tilt tonight as Dogs visit Caps, FOOD DRIVE and $5.00 tickets tomorrow!
The Dogs were last in action Sunday afternoon at home where they topped Chilliwack 7-2 for their second consecutive win after a 5-2 triumph over the Caps at the Dog Pound on Friday. The Capitals last played Saturday night at home where they lost their second in a row, 3-2 to the Vernon Vipers. The Capitals have lost 11 of their last 12, however their only win in that stretch was the crazy six-goal third period that saw them beat the Dogs at home 6-0 two Fridays ago.
Interesting stat - the only rink in the Division that the Dogs haven't taken at least a point in this year is the Island Savings Centre. That's in spite of the fact that it's the rink they have visited the most, and the Caps are the team closest to them in the standings. The Dogs took a point in an OT loss in Powell River, played to a tie with the Grizzlies at Bear Mountain Arena and have beaten the Clippers in Nanaimo. Here's hoping that the Dogs can bring a complete effort to get over that hump tonight, as the timing couldn't be better/worse or more critical.
Pacific Chevrolet Bulldogs Hockey on 93.3 The Peak FM tonight with the pregame show commencing at 6:45 with the puck drop and play-by-play following at 7:00pm. I will provide the Play-by-Play, and Dan "the stats man" Tisserand will compile Game and Player statistics. Bruce MacDonald won't be making the trip to provide Colour and Analysis as he has a Staff Christmas party to attend. Just like when Dan attended his party, it's a great time to highlight the commitment Bruce makes and the passion he shows volunteering his time to travel to the road games on the Island and all he contributes to the broadcasts. We'll miss ya BMac!
Tonight's 1st Intermission guest is Bulldogs Defenceman Ryan Buse, while my 2nd Intermission guest is new Grizzlies Head Coach Craig Didmon.
