The Bulldogs were last on the ice Saturday night at home, where they topped the Coquitlam Express 5-3 for their first win of the season. The Vipers were also last on the ice for game action on Saturday night, when they won their 4th straight game to open the season, 5-1 over the Wild in Wenatchee
ALL games at the Showcase this year will be in the big Main rink at Prospera Centre, which makes me pretty happy as the Dogs were one of only two teams in the league to be blessed with an appearance in the small rink next door last year, as pictured above.
I will NOT miss having to broadcast from that vantage point. From the perspective of the players on both teams, I'm happy they get the full experience like everyone else of playing in the first class confines of the big rink for both games.
It's a neutral site game, but it's not at home so tonight's broadcast on 93.3 The Peak FM is brought to you by Pacific Chevrolet - the puck drops at 7:30, so that means I'll be on the air with the pregame show at 7:15.
Tonight's 2nd Intermission guest is Craig Beauchemin, the play-by-play voice of the Penticton Vees, who the Dogs face to conclude their Showcase appearance tomorrow. Note the start time of 4:00pm.
