There is still plenty that can be decided in the Island Division - two regulation time wins for the Bulldogs can put them into third spot over the Kings. On the other side, a Kings wins could put them into second place and give them home ice advantage in the first round, however they'll need some help on the out of town scoreboard for that to happen. The Dogs come into tonight four points back of the Kings, while the Kings are three points back of the Grizzlies. The first tie breaker is most wins - the Grizzlies have one more than the Kings and the Dogs. The Kings hold the head-to-head tiebreaker against the Grizzlies, who kick off a home-and-home with the Clippers tonight in Nanaimo.
The Dogs last saw action Sunday afternoon in Merritt where they lost their fourth in a row, 4-1 to the Centennials. The Kings were last in action Saturday night in Victoria, where they also lost their fourth in a row, 3-2 to the Grizzlies.
These teams last met New Year's Eve in Powell River, a 3-2 double overtime win for the Bulldogs. The Bulldogs lead the season series with a 4-1-0-2 record head-to-head, while the Kings record head-to-head is 3-2-0-2.

Tonight's 2nd Intermission guest is former Bulldog Justin Georgeson - last season's leading scorer, who is heading into a big weekend with the UBC Thunderbirds.
Here's a video from the Playoffs last year that Justin listed as his best memory as a Bulldog. LOUD LOUD rink.
And here's one of my favorites from Justin from last year. Jockstraps on the ice indeed!
