It's the final regular season meeting between the teams, as the Bulldogs (16-25-7-2, 5th Island) head over the hump to visit the Clippers (20-26-5-1, 4th Island) in what's as close as you can get to must win game for the Bulldogs if they hope to play into the post season.
The Bulldogs were last in action Tuesday night in Powell River, where they ended up on the wrong end of a 9-0 score at the hands of the Kings.
The Clippers were also last in action on Tuesday night, when they won their second in a row 5-4 over the Capitals in Duncan
The Clippers have won the last three games in the season series, with the the last two being decided in overtime. The Bulldogs record head to head is 3-2-0-2 good for 8 points while the Clippers are 4-1-2-0 for 10 points. The Clippers have out scored the Bulldogs 17-15 and out shot them 262 to 202. The Bulldogs are 3 for 31 on the power play with the Clippers going 2 for 35, while also scoring twice while shorthanded and once into an empty net. All of that matters absolutely zero when the puck drops tonight of course - just some numbers for you to chew on.
