“We had our chances when we were trailing 3-2” said Gardner

“We should have scored to make it three all and put the pressure back on them (Ice Dogs), but a we made a couple of silly mistakes and it’s a goal at the other end.”

The Ice Dogs also debuted a new third jersey which has been created by Australian apparel brand Cheapskate hockey. The new jersey features a redesigned bull dog logo and a throwback to the teams classic blue and maroon look. Andy Hill from Cheap Skate was on hand to drop the ceremonial puck before the game.
