Bulldogs host Clippers tonight to begin three game weekend
It's the start of a busy three-in-three weekend tonight at the Dog Pound, as the Bulldogs (1-3-0-1) host the Nanaimo Clippers (4-1-0-1) for the first time this season.
This is the second head to head meeting already, with the Clippers winning the opener in comeback fashion 5-3 on September 8th.
The Bulldogs haven't played since last Friday at the Showcase, where they dropped a 3-2 decision to the Penticton Vees. The Clippers were last in action Saturday at the Showcase, as they ran their unbeaten streak to three, while having their win streak stopped at two by playing to a 3-3 tie with the Wenatchee Wild.
It will be nice to not be broadcasting solo, with Bruce and Dan back in the booth to provide colour commentary/analysis and team and player statistics while I call the play-by-play. Van Isle Ford Bulldogs Hockey on THE PEAK is on the air at 6:45 for the pregame show, with the play-by-play following the 7:00pm puck drop.
Tonight's 2nd Intermission guest is Alex Rawnsley, the play-by-play voice of the Powell River Kings, (also of Sportscasterlife.com) who the Dogs visit tomorrow for the first meeting of the season between the teams. Note the start time of 5:00pm.
