Bulldogs Need Home Cooking to Get Back in Series

After suffering a pair of one goal set backs on the road to open the Coastal Conference Finals, the Bulldogs return home to the Dawg Pound for Game 3 tonight and can only hope a little home cooking helps deliver them a much needed win to climb back into the series. Puck drop is set for 7pm.

The Bulldogs have been here before. Last season they trailed 2-0 after a pair of tough losses and found a way to win both in Port Alberni and pull even in the series.  Obviously they’re hoping for a little more of the same a year later.

The Bulldogs are making a couple to tweaks to the roster in advance of Game 3.  Inserted back into the line up are forward Cole Bishop who suffered an injury against Coquitlam in Game 1 of the series and has been out since making a valiant attempt in Game 2.  Also returning to the line up is 20 year old veteran defenceman Matias Myllykoski who last suited up for the Bulldogs on February 19th when he suffered a lower body injury.  Myllykoski has worked hard to put himself in a position to play, and will get that opportunity tonight.

Callum Tung draws the start in goal and he’s picked up right where he left off against the Chiefs in the first two games against the high-powered Eagles.  Tung has stopped 65 of 70 shots in the series, it just hasn’t been enough to add to the win total for him or the Bulldogs.  In game two’s OT loss, Tung stopped 47 shots.

Where will the Eagles go in goal is always a question.  After Ajeet Gundarah stopped 27 of 28 in the opener, the Eagles continued their rotational play and went with Jaiden Sharma who was great stopping 36 of 38 shots the Bulldogs sent his way. Best guess? Look for Ajeet Gundarah to get the start.
