Dogs back home today for matinee against Express, Josh Bonar interview

It's the second and final regular season meeting between the teams today as the Bulldogs (17-24-3-3, 5th Island) host the Coquitlam Express (20-22-4-1, 4th Mainland) for a 2pm puck drop at the Multiplex.

The Dogs were in Victoria last night where they picked up a huge 6-3 win. The Express were in Duncan last night, where lost their third straight, 5-0 to the Capitals. They have had a busy week, as they hosted Wenatchee on Wednesday night where they lost 4-2 and were in Powell River on Friday night where they were on the wrong end of a 5-2 score.

These teams last met December 6th in Coquitlam, a 5-4 Bulldog win in double overtime. Prior to last night's win in Victoria, that was their last win on the road.

If you can't make it to the game, we will bring the game to you on Pacific Chevrolet Bulldogs Hockey on 93.3 The Peak FM. The puck drop is at 2:00pm, with the pregame show on the air starting at 1:45 with myself, Bruce MacDonald and Dan Tisserand comprising the crew in the booth bringing you the play-by-play, colour and analysis and team and player statistics.

Today's 2nd Intermission guest is Port Alberni Native and former Bulldog Josh Bonar - who has now come full circle from a player as he is now on the Bulldog Scouting Staff. Josh is a pretty neat story, as he is a local player from the a different era, growing up when there was no Multiplex and no Bulldog franchise. As we talk about during the interview, he's been involved in hockey as both a player and now a coach, for almost half of his life. He returned from the WHL to play for the Bulldogs from the 2003-2004 through 2004-2005 seasons before playing two years of CIS Hockey. He then turned pro and has seen the world while doing it, playing in the Central Hockey League and the Southern Professional Hockey League along with stops overseas in Norway, Hungary, Romania and Kazakhstan.

Along with helping the Bulldogs on the scouting side of things, he's also working as a coach with the Burnaby Winter Club AND has his foot in the door with the Vancouver Canucks, working as an assistant to their coach in their video department, which is pretty darn cool if you ask me!
