It's the second meeting of the season between the teams, and the second at the Dog Pound, as the Dogs beat the Grizzlies 3-2 in their home opener on September 19th.
The Bulldogs were last in action Wednesday night in Nanaimo, where they lost a wild one, 7-4 to the Clippers.
The Grizzlies finally played their home opener last night, losing 5-4 in overtime to the Coquitlam Express. While the Grizzlies lost the game, they showed no quit and pulled a point out of the fire as they scored twice with the goalie pulled in the final two minutes, including once at the buzzer to force overtime. Points are points, whether they are gained in October or February. Who knows how huge that single point could be when it comes to the end of the season in the standings.
