Pre-Game Report: Eagles at Spruce Kings

The Surrey Eagles will visit Prince George for the first time this season to face the Spruce Kings tonight. It's the second meeting between the two teams. Prince George defeated Surrey 4-1 at the South Surrey Arena on October 5.

Surrey currently sits in last place in the tight Mainland Division with a record of 5-4-0-1. The Birds are coming off a 5-1 victory over the Merritt Centennials last Sunday. The game was arguably the best performance for Surrey in the first ten games of the season. Trevor Cameron and Michael Stenerson both scored twice in that game, and head coach Matt Erhart is looking to his older players to continue to find the net.

"We're one of the younger teams in the league," said Erhart. "We're carrying 12 rookies right now, so we need (our veterans) to step up.

"We played a great game as a team on Sunday. Getting the guys together for this road trip, the key is playing a good, solid, if it has to be boring then a boring 60 minute road game where guys are playing hard in all three zones."

The Spruce Kings will play their second game in as many nights this evening after beating the Powell River Kings 2-1 last night. Bryant Christian had a goal in the win yesterday. The 19-year-old BCHL rookie also had a strong outing last week in the win over Surrey, putting up two points. Prince George currently sits in third in the Mainland Division with a record of 6-4-1-1. The Spruce Kings are undefeated in regulation this season at the friendly confines of the Prince George Coliseum.
