The Bulldogs were last in action Saturday at home where they beat the Grizzlies 6-2. They enter play tonight tied with the Cowichan Valley Capitals for the final Playoff spot on the Island with two games left for both clubs. The Dogs host Powell River to end their regular season Saturday night, while the Capitals have a Home-and-Home with the Grizzlies that starts in Duncan Friday and ends in Victoria on Saturday.
The Bulldogs of course need to only focus on what they CAN control, and not what they CAN'T. They have a big task ahead of them in the Kings, who have won two in a row, most recently seeing action Saturday night at home where they beat the Capitals 5-2. The Bulldogs have won the last two games head to head, most recently by a 4-0 score at the Dog Pound on February 12th. The last game between the clubs in Powell River was way back in mid November.
There are so many scenarios that could play out over the next couple of days... a single point tonight COULD be enough to secure a playoff spot for the Bulldogs, should the Caps lose their final two games this weekend. A win tonight, and a win on Saturday, could be not enough to secure a playoff spot should the Capitals win their final two games.
Just win baby.

Tonight's 2nd Intermission guest is former Bulldog Harry Zolnierczyk, now with the Pittsburgh Penguins organization. Harry scored for the Penguins earlier this month, set up by some guy you might have heard of named Sidney Crosby. It seems like just yesterday that Harry scored his first career BCHL goal, for the Bulldogs in where else but Powell River.
And now a Major nostalgia warning for long-time Bulldog fans! Video of Harry's first goal. The six degrees of separation here is something else...in net for Powell River for Harry's first BCHL goal...Bulldog Goalie Coach Alex Evin!
