Grizzlies clinch first, open playoffs tonight in Colwood vs. Dogs

They may have lost the overall B.C. Hockey League title, but the Victoria Grizzlies ended the regular season on a winning note, beating Cowichan Valley 5-2 last Saturday at The Q Centre (formerly Bear Mountain Arena).

The win gave the Grizzlies (37-15-3-3) a two-point margin over Powell River atop the Island Division and put them in a first-round best-of-seven playoff matchup with the Alberni Valley Bulldogs.

The Grizzlies host the Bulldogs in Game 1 tonight at 7:15 p.m.at The Q Centre, with Game 2 set for the same time tomorrow night. The teams head to Port Alberni for Games 3 and 4 Friday and Saturday. Game 5, if necessary, would be played in Colwood on Monday, March 10.
