Bulldogs host Kings today, pregame BBQ and Tailgate, Marlon Sabo interview

It's the finale of the regular season today as the Bulldogs (21-27-4-4, 4th Island) host the Powell River Kings (33-20-3-1, 2nd Island) at the Dog Pound.

The Bulldogs will be holding a BBQ and Tail Gate party at 12:30 to encourage fans to head to the rink early to check out some live music and grab some grub while supporting Kidsport

These teams met last night at the Dog Pound, where the Bulldogs picked up a 6-2 win  and two huge points to take over the fourth and final playoff spot in the division.

The stakes are simple. Win, and you're in. The task at hand however is anything but simple. The Bulldogs have gone from a position on Friday where they didn't even control their own destiny, to a position today where a single point clinches a playoff spot. Having said that, the Bulldogs haven't accomplished anything yet. A win last night is all for nothing if the Dogs end up on the outside looking in at the end of the day tomorrow.

As we have for the previous 57 games, we'll bring the game to you if you can't make it to the Multiplex through your radio on 93.3 The Peak FM. The pregame show on Pacific Chevrolet Bulldogs Hockey commences at 1:45, with the puck drop is scheduled for 2:00pm.

If you aren't in listening range of 93.3 The Peak FM you can listen to/watch the game by:

Today's 2nd Intermission guest is former Bulldog Marlon Sabo, who is currently in his Junior season with the NCAA's Princeton Tigers. Bulldog fans will no doubt remember Sabo as a towering defenceman, Having said that, making your way in this game sometimes includes adjusting and embracing a role that is given to you by your coaches - if you missed the interview with Ryan Lough last night,  Marlon has recently been playing up front, even taking faceoffs! 

Bulldog fans will not only remember, but most likely never forget Marlon's overtime game winner at a sold-right-out Dog Pound in Game 4 of the 2012-2013 Island Final series. The goal helped the Bulldogs stave off elimination. As you might have also seen on the blog yesterday, they won the series also in overtime in the deciding fifth game of the series in Victoria.
