It's the start of a three-in-three swing through the Interior Division tonight as the Bulldogs (18-13-1-3, 4th Island) visit the Trail Smoke Eaters (13-23-0-2, 6th Interior) at the Cominco Memorial Arena in Trail.
This is the second and final Regular Season meeting between the teams, with the Bulldogs winning the previous match up 5-3 at the Dog Pound on October 11th.
The Bulldogs were last in action Sunday afternoon at home where they had a three game winning streak snapped with a 5-4 loss to the Cowichan Valley Capitals. The Smoke Eaters meanwhile last saw action Wednesday night in Salmon Arm where they lost their fourth in a row in a heart breaker, 3-2 to the Silverbacks.
The Cominco Memorial Arena is a beautiful old barn with great history - but it's a very tough place to play for visiting teams who don't have much experience in it as the boards are very lively and the corners are a little unique which leads to some bounces that you won't see in many other rinks. The Bulldogs will have to be extra ready not just for the building, but for the Smoke Eaters too as you can bet that this game will be a little special for the ex Bulldogs on their squad in Harlan Orr, Craig Martin, Kienan Scott and Adam Todd. Those four will no doubt come out with an extra jump to prove something tonight, as most guys usually do against their old team.
