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!
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.
