The Bulldogs are coming off back-to-back one goal losses against Penticton and Prince George at the Showcase, both games fighting back from four goal deficits. I was certainly impressed with the battle back and no-quit attitude shown..How couldn't you be? At the same time, it's not a game that you want to play too often if you want to win more games than you lose. It's just such a high level of hockey and the line is so fine between winning and losing that as cliche as it sounds - you need a full 60 minute (and sometimes more) consistent effort if you want to win.
The Kings dropped their third straight to open the season last night in Nanaimo, falling 8-4 to the Clippers in Nanaimo

Tonight's 2nd intermission guest is long-time NHL Linesman Brad Lazarowich ( over 2000 games) who is also the BCHL's Assistant Director of Officiating under Derek Adams. The interview is with Jeff Patterson, and is from last week's episode of BCHL This Week on TSN 1040. Don't forget to catch the show this morning, and every Saturday Morning at 9:30 on TSN 1040. The league sure is lucky to have someone like Lazarowich mentoring the league Officials. Coming from the BCHL and ending up in the show, he's a perfect example to the guys on what you can achieve if you do it right!
