Bulldogs host Clippers tonight for critical contest
It's the seventh of eight Regular season meetings between these storied rivals, and the last on Dog Pound ice as the Bulldogs (16-24-6-2, 5th Island) host the Nanaimo Clippers (18-26-5-1, 4th Island) tonight in a game that once again has huge implications in the Island Division standings.
The Bulldogs were last in action Wednesday night in Duncan, where they picked up a huge 6-2 win over the Capitals.
The Clippers were in action last night at home, where they lost their third in a row, 2-1 to the Penticton Vees.
These teams last met January 21st at the Dog Pound, a 3-2 overtime win for the Clippers, as they took 3 out of 4 points against the Bulldogs in a home-and-home set. It was a missed opportunity for the Bulldogs to change their position in the standings - but they need to treat that as ancient history and look only at the task at hand tonight and the opportunity that they've earned by fighting back since that disheartening weekend with a couple big wins. If there were any regrets or lost hours of sleep from the Bulldogs from that opportunity missed - here's another chance.
