These teams last met to start October when they split a home-and-home set, with the Bulldogs winning 4-3 in OT in Victoria on Friday, October 3rd. The Grizzlies responded the next night in Port Alberni with a 4-3 win of their own, scoring two third period shorthanded goals just four minutes apart (the only two the Bulldogs have allowed all season) to erase a 3-2 Bullldog lead after 40 minutes.
The Bulldogs enter play tonight unbeaten in three after a 2-2 tie in Langley on Sunday afternoon. The Grizzlies were also last in action on Sunday afternoon, when they lost 6-5 to the West Kelowna Warriors in a game where the Grizzlies jumped out to a 3-0 lead just five minutes into the game. The Grizzlies have lost four of their last five games, but have been in every one of them, losing 2-1 in Penticton, 4-3 in overtime in Merritt, 5-4 in Nanaimo, and winning 5-4 at home against Surrey last Saturday night.
