It's another huge four point game tonight, as the Bulldogs (15-24-6-2, 5th Island) head down to the Island Savings Centre in Duncan to face the Capitals (20-23-3-2, 3rd Island) for the second meeting between the teams in just five days.
The Bulldogs are coming off a 6-2 loss at home on Saturday to the Victoria Grizzlies. The Caps were also last in action Saturday night at home, where they lost their 7th in a row, 5-0 to the Wenatchee Wild.
These teams of course last met Friday night at the Dog Pound, a 5-2 Bulldog win in an emotional and at times testy affair. The stakes are high, emotions are no doubt going to be high - as much as the Dogs need to bring a solid 60 minute effort, they might also need to show some maturity and discipline - play hard, fast and physical and between the whistles realize that nothing positive can come from getting mixed up in extra curricular shenanigans. I'm not at all saying that this is the Capitals game, just to be clear. It's just the second meeting between the teams in less than a week, and these teams have had some passionate games.
Pacific Chevrolet Bulldogs Hockey is live from the Island Savings Centre on 93.3 The Peak FM starting with the pregame show at 6:45, with the game action to follow the 7:00pm puck drop. I'll handle the hosting duties while Dan Tisserand compiles team and player stats.
