Bulldogs, Blues square off in divisional match-up

The Antigonish Bulldogs host the Cumberland Co. Blues in the Nova Scotia Junior Hockey League.

It's a match-up of the two teams at the bottom of the five-team Sid Rowe Division- Antigonish is fourth, while Cumberland Co. is last.

It's the second game of the season between the teams, who met in Springhill Nov. 12- the Bulldogs doubled the Blues 8-4.

Dave Synishin, Antigonish's head coach, tells The Hawk the Blues are better than their record indicates.

"They actually have a pretty good team- they were up on us 2-0 and 3-1 (Nov. 12), we outshot them by a pretty big margin, but they were a good hockey team," he says. "I imagine they're going to look for a little revenge, and we'll have to just be prepared for them coming hard."

Puck drop at the Antigonish Arena is 7:30 p.m.
