Pre-Game Report: Eagles at Rivermen

The Surrey Eagles will look for their fourth straight win tonight as they visit the Langley Events Centre to face the Langley Rivermen. The Birds are leading the season series 1-0 after defeating the Rivermen 5-3 in Surrey on Friday evening. This evening's game is the second of three in a row between the Eagles and Rivermen.

Brady Shaw scored twice in Surrey's Friday night win. The newest addition to the nest now has four goals in two games for Surrey and has found some chemistry with line mates Michael Stenerson and Demico Hannoun. Heading into Saturday's action, the Eagles sit in fourth in the Mainland Division with a record of 8-5-0-1, but only three of the team's wins have come against opponents from their own division. Tonight's game is the first of a three game road swing for the Birds as they'll visit Langley again this coming Thursday before heading to Merritt to face the Centennials on Friday night.

The Rivermen mounted a valiant comeback on Friday after going down 4-0 at the South Surrey Arena. Mitch McLain led the charge for the Langley side, scoring twice to pull his team within one goal late in the third. Langley will be desperate for a win on Saturday after losing five of their last six games, dropping to last place in the Mainland Division. Despite the loss, the Rivermen converted twice with the man advantage on Friday.
