It's the first meeting of the season between the teams, as the Bulldogs (4-4-1-0, 4th Island) host the red hot Powell River Kings (6-4-0-0, 3rd Island) at the Multiplex.
The Bulldogs were last in action Sunday afternoon at home, where they fell 2-1 to the Coquitlam Express. The Kings last saw the ice Saturday night at home, where they won their SIXTH straight 3-2 over the Victoria Grizzlies in double overtime.
It goes without saying that the Dogs will need to be at their absolute best. The Kings are always a tough test, and you can bet that their current streak is no accident as they are the hottest team in the BCHL. The Kings started the season on a four game losing streak, and haven't lost since. Quite a turn around.
