Bulldogs face Kings tonight in Powell River

Its the eleventh straight game against an Island Division opponent tonight for the Bulldogs (15-22-3-3, 5th Island) as they take on the Powell River Kings (24-18-2-0, 2nd Island) at the Hap Parker Arena.

The Bulldogs enter play tonight unbeaten in three games with two wins and a tie - they were last in action Saturday night at home when they topped the Cowichan Valley Capitals 5-0.  The Kings begin a nine game home stand tonight, and were last in action Sunday afternoon where they finished off a three-in-three road trip and a stretch of six straight road games with a big 6-4 comeback win over the Trail Smoke Eaters. The Kings were down by two goals with less than ten minutes to play before mounting their comeback - no easy feat at the end of a three-in-three weekend.

These teams last met head-to-head January 10th at the Dog Pound, a 6-1 Bulldog win. The Kings lead the season series with a 4-1-0-0 record while the Dogs are 1-3-0-1. The last two meetings in Powell River came on December 30th and 31st, where the Kings won 2-1 in OT and 5-0 respectively.

If you aren't making the trip to Powell River fear not, as I'll make you feel like you are there - or I'll at least try to - on Van Isle Ford's Bulldogs Hockey Broadcasts on 93.3 The Peak FM. Tune in at 7:00 for the pregame show with the puck drop and play-by-play to follow at 7:15.
