The Bulldogs were last in action Saturday night at home, where they won their third in a row, 4-3 in overtime over Prince George. The Clippers finished off a three-game weekend roadie to the Interior on Sunday afternoon in West Kelowna, where they lost their fourth in a row, 7-4 to the Warriors.
It's the fourth meeting of the season between the teams, and it's been a home ice series so far. The Clippers won the first two meetings on their ice by scores of 7-4 and 3-0 respectively, while the Dogs came out on top in the most recent meeting, 4-2 at the Dog Pound on Halloween night.
The last two games between these teams had their share of fireworks, and while it makes for good hockey it's also important to just play the game and be disciplined and not get involved in the extra curriculars. That is of course easier said than done as the level of dislike rises dramatically when teams are playing each other back to back, and often, but one has to think that staying out of the box and staying disciplined and focused are huge keys to winning.

Tonight's 2nd Intermission guest is former Bulldog Connor Varley, who is in his senior season at Penn State. It sure is incredible how time flies, as it seems just yesterday that Varley was named best defenceman for the Bulldogs in the 2010-2011 season, and now he's a senior in College!
