GAMEDAY: Rivermen host Bulldogs

The Langley Rivermen will welcome the Alberni Valley Bulldogs to the “Fort” tonight for a rare Thursday night home game. Both teams are coming off back to back wins and are both fresh off a win against the Powell River Kings. The Rivermen defeated Powell River on Saturday night, and less than 24 hours later the Bulldogs handed Powell River another loss at the ‘Dog pound. The last meeting between the Rivermen and Bulldogs did not end so well for the ‘Dogs as they took one on the chin 7-1 to the hands of the Rivermen. Although this time around it will not be so easy with Langley fighting a bit of the injury bug and will be without the services of Cintas,Vlanich, and Gushue. Look for the coaching staff to run 11 forwards and 5 defense. If you can’t make it out to the game, be sure to catch it on the PPV webcast! 6:45 for the pre-game show!
