The Bulldogs were back on home ice Saturday night and edged Prince George Spruce Kings 4–3 in overtime. The win was goaltender Brody Claeys’ first of his BCHL career.

Scott Clark halved the lead with a Bulldogs’ power play marker at 14:48, but Rempal cemented the win with his second of the game at 18:43 of the third period.
