It's the conclusion of the 2016-2017 season tonight for the Bulldogs (16-32-7-2, 5th Island) as they host the Powell River Kings (37-18-1-0, 2nd Island) at the Dog Pound.
The Bulldogs were in Duncan last night, where they lost their ninth straight, 2-1 to the Capitals.
The Kings haven't played since last Saturday night, when they won their fourth in a row 4-1 over the Nanaimo Clippers on home ice.
These teams last met February 7th in Powell River, a 9-0 Kings win.
The Bulldogs are hosting a pregame BBQ and Tailgate party - proceeds from it go towards Literacy Alberni. There will be live music performed by Alberni Teens Can Rock as well, so be sure to get to the rink early to take part in the festivities.
It's always a tough night when a season ends. Careers for the 20 year olds and graduating players come to a close, and it's the last time in a game that this group will compete together. Maybe I'm out the outside looking in, but I've been impressed with how close this team seems to be despite all the rough results lately. It's my hope that they can come out as a group and have fun and end their season on a high. It certainly won't be easy against the always tough Kings, who will be looking to head into the playoffs on a high note as well.
Tonight's 2nd Intermission guest is former Bulldog Connor LaCouvee, currently playing his Junior season with the Boston University Terriers
