Bulldogs visit Spruce Kings tonight to kick off three-in-three weekend

It's the start of a busy and long three game in three day weekend for the Bulldogs (11-7-1-2, 2nd Island) as they kick things off tonight from the Coliseum in Prince George, also known as the "Castle" where they face the Spruce Kings (14-9-0-2, 1st Mainland) for the third meeting between the teams this season.

It's a grand ole barn - and I say that with the utmost sincerity - if I'm not mistaken once an old aircraft hanger....or so the legend goes from what I remember... that was converted to a rink, with smaller than regulation dimensions, different corners and crazy boards and overall tight confines with a great atmosphere when a good crowd shows up. Due to the Spruce Kings consistent success over the last couple of years, that's more often than not as the last three home games for the Kings have brought in crowds of 982, 1082 and 1054. Not bad at all.

The Bulldogs were last in action Saturday night at home, where they picked up a 4-2 win over the Chilliwack Chiefs, while the Spruce Kings were in Chilliwack Wednesday night where they dropped a 5-1 decision to the Chiefs. 

Here's a glance at how close the Bulldog's bench is to the broadcast booth - if the visitors are in control and the rink is quiet, I'm feel like I'm pretty much broadcasting to the bench!

As previously mentioned, it's the third meeting of the season between the teams after a 6-5 Prince George win at the season-opening Showcase and a 5-4 Spruce Kings win on Sunday, October 19th when they showed considerable grit in playing their fourth game in five days, snapping the Dogs winning streak at four games, still a season high.

Tonight's broadcast kicks off with the pregame show at 6:45 with the puck drop and play-by-play to follow at 7:00pm on Van Isle Ford Bulldogs Hockey on 93.3 The Peak FM
