Bulldogs and Clippers meet for first time tonight at Frank Crane Arena, Midget tourney, Battle of the Badges tomorrow

It's pretty incredible that it's November already yet it's the first meeting of the season tonight between the Bulldogs (9-6-0-1, 2nd Island) and the Clippers (12-6-0-0, 1st Island) at the Frank Crane Arena.

Maybe the schedule makers knew what they were doing, as it seems like the fact that's a 1 vs 2 match up makes it even more interesting. Not that the Bulldogs and Clippers rivalry need any extra incentive either, as both games between these great rivals never fail to be lively.

It goes without saying that this is a big game, or as big as a game as this juncture of the season can get I guess. The Dogs are five points back of the Clippers, they have played two less games, and this is a four point game. Here's hoping the Bulldogs fan bus will make some noise and give the guys a little extra boost tonight on the road!

Here's one of the all-time great pictures (courtesy of Jamie Penner and V3 Mediaworks) of the Bulldogs-Clippers rivlary as Harry Zolnierczyk, now in the New York Islanders system, gets some serious air while screening the Nanaimo net.

As far as I can remember, this is the first time that the Bulldogs and Clippers have been involved in a 1st vs 2nd match up this late in the season since the very memorable 2005-2006 season. Correct me if I'm wrong on this?
If you can't make the trip to Nanaimo, we'll make you feel like you are there on Pacific Chevrolet Bulldogs Hockey on 93.3 The Peak FM with the pregame show getting underway at 6:45 and the puck dropping shortly after 7:00. The full crew will be bringing everything to you, I'll provide the play-by-play, Bruce MacDonald the colour and analysis and Dan Tisserand the team and player stats.

If you aren't in radio listening range of 93.3 The Peak FM you can listen/watch the game by:

The Battle of the Badges charity hockey game to raise funds for the Port Alberni Association for Community Living goes tomorrow night as the PA RCMP take on the PAFD with the Bulldogs taking part as special guests. Game time is 7:00pm - admission is by dontion! I'll be providing some PA announcing! Should be fun!
