Dogs kick off Interior weekend tonight with rematch in Salmon Arm

It's the final regular season meeting between these two teams and the second in less than a week as the Bulldogs (12-22-2-5, 5th Island) return the favour and pay the Silverbacks (20-16-1-5, Tied-4th Interior) a visit at the Shaw Centre in Salmon Arm to kick off crucial a three-game weekend road trip through the Okanagan.  

The Bulldogs were last in action Saturday night at home of course against the Silverbacks where they picked up a 4-2 win. The 'Backs were last in action Sunday afternoon in Duncan where they finished their Island swing with a 2-1 loss to the Capitals. It certainly would have been nice for the Dogs had the Backs been able to do them a favour. A tough road trip for the Backs, as they dealt with a short bench due to illness to kick the trip off, and probably felt the effects throughout the weekend. They scored a total of four goals in three games but were right in it in all three contests. The Dogs had best bring their "A" game tonight as one can expect the desperate Silverbacks to be motivated for revenge.

Desperation. Both teams will no doubt have it due to their position in the standings. The team that has more of it has a good chance of winning one would think. The Silverbacks didn't get any favours on the Out-of-Town scoreboard this week either, as the Merritt Centennials beat the Vernon Vipers 4-1 on Tuesday night to pull even with them in the standings for the final Interior post season berth. Technically, the Centennials jumped ahead of the Silverbacks by virtue of holding the first tiebreaker, more wins. 


I'll bring all the action to you tonight on Pacific Chevrolet Bulldogs Hockey on 93.3 The Peak FM from the Shaw Centre in Salmon Arm with the pregame show kicking off at 6:45 with the puck drop and play-by-play to follow at 7:00pm.
