These teams last met at the BCHL Showcase - Game 1 for the Bulldogs, Game 2 for the Vees, back on September 21st, a 4-3 Vees win.
The Bulldogs were last in action at home Friday night where they snapped a four game losing streak with a 5-2 win over the Nanaimo Clippers. The Vees conclude a three game roadie this afternoon that has seem them cover some miles. They were in Chilliwack on Friday where they beat the Chiefs 3-2 in double overtime, before travelling to Powell River last night where they played to a 3-3 tie with the Kings.
It goes without saying that the Vees will be a tough test and that much like on Friday night the Dogs will have to bring their absolute best for a full 60 minutes or more if they want to earn two points. The schedule has been heavy to say the least over the last couple of weeks - the Island Division leading Clippers three of the last four games and now the Interior and overall league leading Vees today. Nothing like facing the best to make you bring your best!
