The Bulldogs come into play tonight a point back of the 4th placed Capitals, who are in action tonight in Nanaimo. The Kings are two points up on the Grizzlies (who have a game in hand) for the Island lead, and a single point back of the Langley Rivermen for the overall league lead. The Kings have lost three in a row, last seeing action Sunday afternoon in Victoria where lost 4-3 to the Grizzlies. This was a wild one, with the Grizzlies scoring the go-ahead goal with less than two minutes to play in the third at the tail end of a five minute power play with Lucas Grayson picking up a Major for slashing. The Kings were penalized again with less than 30 seconds to go, but they tied the game while shorthanded just a dozen seconds later, only to lose on a power play goal in the first minute OT.
These teams last met January 26th in a wild one at the Dog Pound, a 6-4 Dogs win.
