Bulldogs return home tonight to host Clippers

It's the first time on home ice since January 19th for the Bulldogs, (15-27-4-4 4th Island) as they return home after six straight games on the road to host the Nanaimo Clippers (25-20-3-3, 3rd Island) for the final regular season meeting between the teams.

The Bulldogs were last in action Saturday night in Powell River, where they dropped a 4-1 decision to the Kings. The Clippers haven't played since Friday night at home, where they won their third in a row 8-5 over the Capitals, while running their unbeaten streak to four games.

This is the first meeting between the teams since January 5th, an 8-3 Clipper win in Nanaimo that was preceded by a 5-2 Clipper win at the Dog Pound two nights earlier. The Clippers have won five straight in the season series, and six of seven. The lone Bulldog win was at the Dog Pound on September 29th, by a 5-4 score.

It will certainly be nice to call a game from the friendly confines of the Multiplex - Van Isle Ford Bulldogs Hockey on 93.3 The Peak FM begins with the pregame show at 6:45, followed by the puck drop at 7:00pm. It will be especially nice to have Bruce MacDonald and Dan Tisserand back in the booth - not just for the camaraderie but also for all that they bring to the broadcast in handling the colour commentary and analysis along with team and player statistics, while I add the play-by-play. 

Tonight's 2nd Intermission guest is Arch Ecker, the play-by-play voice of the Wenatchee Wild, who visit the Dog Pound on Saturday night.
