Bulldogs open 2018 tonight, host Clippers

It's the first game of the New Year for both sides of the puck tonight, as the Bulldogs (1-19-3-4, 4th Island) host the Nanaimo Clippers (20-13-3-2, T-1st Island) at the Alberni Valley Multiplex.

The Bulldogs last played on New Year's Eve, where they picked up a 3-2 double overtime win over the Powell River Kings. The Clippers last played Saturday night in Duncan, where they won their second straight, 4-3 in comeback fashion over the Capitals.

The Clippers lead the season series with a 4-1-0-0 record, while the Bulldogs are 1-3-1-0. This is the first meeting between the teams in over a month. The last time they saw each other was November 25th in Nanaimo, a 4-0 Clippers win.  The last head-to-head meeting at the Dog Pound was a 4-1 Clipper win on November 11th. The Clippers won  2-1 in double overtime in Nanaimo on October 6th. The lone Bulldog win was 5-4 on home ice on September 29th.  The Clippers won the season opener for both clubs, 5-3 on September 8th.

The full crew will be in the broadcast booth tonight to bring the game to you, on 93.3 The Peak's Bulldogs Hockey brought to you by Van Isle Ford. Dan Tisserand tabulates team and player stats, Bruce Macdonald relays analyis and colour commentary and I'll call the play-by-play. The pregame show is on the air at 6:45, in advance of the 7:00pm puck drop.

Tonight's 2nd Intermision guest is former Bulldog Jared Wilson, now a Senior - and Co-Captain with the NCAA's RPI Engineers. It's from the ECAC Radio show, with host . Wilson was an integral part of the Bulldogs 2012-2013 Island Championship season, and was subsequently traded early in the 2013-2014 season to the Vernon Vipers. I'm hoping to get in touch with him before the season is out for my own interview with him so look for that still to come.
