The Clippers left the Dawg Pound last Wednesday with a 5–2 win in the Bulldogs’ first game of 2018, then dominated Alberni 8–3 at Frank Crane Arena on Friday.

The Bulldogs host the Warriors in a matinee game today at 2 p.m. at the Alberni Valley Multiplex on Roger Street. The Warriors are currently in fifth place in the B.C. Hockey League’s Interior division with 40 points, while the Bulldogs are in fourth place in the Island division with 29 points.
