Bulldogs host Grizzlies tonight, A Very Merry Bulldog Christmas

It's the second to last game before the Christmas break for the Bulldogs (9-18-2-4, 4th Island) as they return home from a three game weekend road trip to host the Victoria Grizzlies (16-14-3-1, 3rd Island) tonight at the Multiplex.

These teams last met Grey Cup Sunday November 26th in Victoria, an 8-5 win for the Grizzlies.   

Tonight's contest will be the sixth head to head match up so far this season, with the Grizzlies winning four of the five, previously by 3-2 score in overtime at the Mutliplex on November 10th, 4-1 at the Multiplex on October 22nd, while the Bulldogs won in Victoria, also by a 3-2 score in overtime on October 18th. The Grizzlies won the first head to head game on Game three of the season, 4-2 on September 15th. 

The Bulldogs were last in action Sunday afternoon in Surrey, where they fell 7-3 to the Eagles.  The Grizzlies also last played Sunday afternoon, winning their second in a row 7-4 over the Powell River Kings at home

Did you Know? Only two teams have played less home games than the Bulldogs (15) so far - Wenatchee (14) and Coquitlam (14). At the same time, only two teams in the league have played more road games than the Bulldogs (18) at this point of the season - Wenatchee (19) and Langley (19)

We go live on 93.3 The Peak FM for Van Isle Ford Bulldogs Hockey starting at 6:45 for the pregame show, followed by the game action after the 7:00 puck drop. Bruce MacDonald provides the analysis and Colour Commentary, Dan Tisserand compiles Team and Individual statistics and I handle the hosting and play-by-play.

As it's the second to last game before the Christmas break, tonight I'm happy to provide my present to you. 

I have no clue how long this tradition has gone on for, but I'm guessing it's a decade or more. It's all business on the ice until the end of the game on Saturday night of course, and it's also all business 99% of the time in my interviews with the players as well.

Having said that, it's a good time of year to have a little fun with the team as spirits are high with time at home and time with family and friends looming on the horizon after what has been for most of the guys a very long grind from August or September. 

Christmas is also of course a magical time - where wishes can even sometimes come true, if Santa has your name on his NICE LIST.

Listen during the 1st and 2nd Intermissions for "A Very Merry Bulldogs Christmas", a compilation of the Christmas wish lists of all the Bulldogs players, coaches and staff. What do they have on their wish list to be under the tree when they wake up on Christmas morning. 

I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed the experience of putting it together!

Saturday night it's A Very Merry BCHL Christmas - the same format but with Coaches and Broadcasters from around the entire British Columbia Hockey League.
