The Bulldogs were last in action Sunday afternoon at home, where they lost their third in a row, 4-3 to the West Kelowna Warriors in an emotional affair.
The Grizzlies last saw action Tuesday night at home, where they won their fourth in a row, 6-3 over the Nanaimo Clippers. The Grizzlies have been red hot as of late, as they are unbeaten in their last nine games with eight wins and a tie. In that nine game stretch, the only team that has stayed within a goal of the Grizzlies - not including the tie, was the Bulldogs, as the Grizzlies picked up a 3-2 win at the Multiplex on December 13th. The Grizzlies beat the Clippers 9-4 and 6-3 in that stretch, topped Powell River 7-4, Cowichan Valley 5-3 and 5-0 and West Kelowna 7-3.
So it goes without saying that the Bulldogs had best bring their A Game for a full 60 minutes, if they want to head home with two points. The last meeting in Victoria was a nutty one, an 8-5 Victoria win on November 26th in which the Bulldogs had a 5-2 lead a minute into the second period.
The Bulldogs announced changes to their leadership group yesterday, made necessary with the departures of Ryan Steele and Connor Welsh. Mitch Oliver was named Captain, with James Orban and Tyler Vanuden named Assistant Captains. Read more HERE
