It's the first trip of the season to the "Big Stick" (not just big, but actually the biggest in the world) for the Bulldogs (5-4-0-0, 4th Island) as they visit the Capitals (2-10-0-0, 5th Island) at the Island Savings Centre in Duncan for the back half of this home and home set.
After last night saw a wild and crazy affair end in a 7-3 Dogs win, who knows what to expect tonight. That's why I always say to expect the unexpected as this game never fails to surprise me. It's hard to win on the road, period, and one would think it's even tougher when the opposition is a team you defeated the night before in your building, for the simple fact that the Capitals will want to answer back and defend their own ice. The Bulldogs did plenty of things right last night, but last night is just that, LAST night.
The Caps did plenty of things wrong - giving up a goal a minute in, failing to generate offense but instead losing momentum on their power play, etc. When things go wrong, they can sure go wrong. It rains and it pours, so to speak. The Caps will no doubt be frustrated, motivated for revenge and desperate to turn their season around so the Dogs had best be ready.
