It's the only game action this weekend for the Bulldogs (9-17-1-0, 4th Island) as they host the Victoria Grizzlies (17-8-0-1, 1st Island) tonight at the Multiplex.
The Bulldogs were in Powell River on Tuesday night, where they fell 3-0 to the Kings. The Grizzlies haven't played since Sunday afternoon in Vernon, where they emerged victorious 6-5 over the Vipers in a shoot out.
This is the fourth meeting of the season between the teams so far. The Grizzlies took the first meeting 5-1 in Port Alberni on September 14th. The Bulldogs won the second match up, 5-3 in Victoria on October 12th. The most recent meeting was a 2-1 overtime win for the Grizzlies at the Multiplex on October 13th.
