Bulldogs travel to Duncan today to face Capitals for 2pm start

It's back to the big stick this afternoon for the Bulldogs (8-6-1-0, 3rd Island) for another meeting with the Capitals (3-13-0-0,  5th Island) at the Island Savings Centre. It's the fourth meeting of the season between the clubs, with all four meetings coming in the last 17 days.

The Bulldogs won the previous three, by scores of 7-3, 8-1, and most recently 3-2 on October 24th at the Dog Pound. The most recent game for those that don't remember saw the Capitals come out and open the scoring before the game was 30 seconds old. The Bulldogs scored the winner with less than 1:30 on the clock in the third period.

The Capitals were last in action Wednesday night at home where they lost 8-1 to the Clippers. Much like the two big Bulldog wins the game was closer possibly than the final score would indicate, as the Caps scored four minutes into the third period to make it a 3-1 game, only to then give up five more before the final buzzer. The Capitals previous outing saw them score twice in the final five minutes to erase a two-goal deficit before getting the winner in overtime for a 6-5 triumph over the West Kelowna Warriors on October 25th to snap a four game losing streak. 

Tune in to all the action from the Big Stick on Pacific Chevrolet Bulldogs hockey on 93.3 The Peak FM with the pregame show getting underway at 1:45 in advance of the 2pm puck drop with Bruce MacDonald providing the colour and analysis while I call the play-by-play.

Today's 2nd Intermission guest is Dan Marshall, play-by-play voice of the Nanaimo Clippers on our sister station 106.9 The Wolf as the Bulldogs and Clippers meet for the first time this season next Friday in Nanaimo. I've talked already several times about the crazy schedule this season, and this is another odd quirk. I certainly can't remember the Bulldogs and Clippers not facing each other until November in any previous season. They will get familiar with each other this month though, as they meet four times through November.
