It's the first game of 2016 for both clubs tonight as the Bulldogs (13-20-2-2, 5th Island) visit the Capitals (18-14-3-2, 3rd Island) at the Big Stick for another edition of the Battle of the Valleys.
The Dogs were last in action Thursday night in Powell River, dropping their fourth in a row 5-0 to the Kings. The Capitals last played Wednesday night at home where they lost their second in a row 5-3 to the Clippers.
This will be the fifth meeting between the teams this season, with the Capitals winning three of four. The last meeting in Duncan was a 5-3 Capitals win on Novevember 25th.
The Big Stick is always a tough place to play, and the Dogs must bring their best effort if they hope to leave with two points. Here's hoping they bring a level of desperation with them as this is their final game in hand on the Grizzlies who sit two points up on the Dogs in the Island Division standings. I expect the Caps to be motivated as well as they now sit third in the standings with Powell River winning two in a row over the Dogs after losing their three previous contests.
