Bulldogs kick off four game road swing tonight in Powell River
The Bulldogs were last in action Saturday night at home where they won their second in a row and ran their unbeaten streak to three games with a 4-1 win over the Prince George Spruce Kings. Powell River is beyond red hot at the moment, as they are coming off back-to-back games at home last weekend where they hit double digits in goals - they beat Prince George 10-4 on Friday night, and bettered that score with a 12-1 win at home Saturday night over the Coquitlam Express.
These teams last met on December 10th in Powell River, a 4-2 Dogs win. The season series has been an entertaining one, with the Bulldogs having a 1-2-0-2 head to head record against the Kings this season, with the Kings out scoring the Dogs 21-18.
The Dogs should feel confident with how they've played lately, and how they played the last time in this building in December. They need to not be over confident at the same time, as the last two Kings results are the proof of how good they are playing and what can happen if you don't come to the Hap Parker Arena ready to play. The Kings have no doubt enjoyed the Christmas break, and getting Carter Turnbull and Kyle Betts back from the World Junior A Challenge.
