Dogs host Spruce Kings tonight, give away $50,000!, Team Pacific goes for GOLD, 1pm TODAY on TSN, Bantam tourney..
It's the first game on Home Ice of 2014 for the Bulldogs ( 10-22-2-4, 5th Island) tonight, and the first meeting of the season between the two teams as the Prince George Spruce Kings (21-12-2-2, 2nd Mainland) pay a visit to the Dog Pound.
The Bulldogs dropped their second in a row last night 4-1 in Victoria, while the Spruce Kings kicked off an Island swing with a 2-1 loss to the Kings in Powell River in the "Battle of the Kings". Quite a good example of how success is possible with community owned teams in that one. Both Dave Dupas Mike Hawes and company and Kent Lewis and Chad Van Diemen and crew and the communities of Powell River and Prince George have done great jobs. Powell River gave away $50,000 last night, and the Spruce Kings are currently running their Home lottery
It's a big night from the off-ice side of things with the Bulldogs organization tonight as well, as the Port Alberni Junior Hockey Society will see the end of their first raffle since purchasing the team prior to the 2012-2013 season with SOMEONE winning the $50,000 cash grand prize tonight. That someone could be YOU, but only if you have a ticket! I hope that the winner is a local - or if not, it's one of the many Bulldog alums and their families that have supported the team by purchasing tickets.
I will provide the Play-by-Play, with Bruce MacDonald the Colour and Analysis and Dan Tisserand the statistics on Van Isle Ford Bulldogs Hockey on 93.3 The Peak FM tonight with the pregame show on getting underway at 6:45 with the puck drop set for 7:00pm.
Tonight's 1st Intermission guest is Bulldogs Forward Justin Georgeson.
Doug Krantz - currently enjoying a year off from the game after playing NCAA and Professional Hockey over the last decade in North America and Europe. Doug is also a one-time Prince George Spruce King
