Pre-Game Report: Eagles at Rivermen

The Surrey Eagles will play the second game of their three game road swing tonight in Langley against the Rivermen. The season series is tied at one win apiece after last weekend's back-to-back home-and-home series. The Eagles picked up a 5-3 win on Friday at home before losing 6-5 in Langley on Saturday.

Surrey is not expected to have Michael Stenerson in the line-up tonight despite the fact that the 19-year-old forward was cut from Team Canada West for the World Junior A Challenge. Meanwhile, defenseman Devon Toews made the team and will play in the tournament which goes form November 5-11 in Nova Scotia. That means he'll likely miss the next six Surrey games. Tonight's game is also the first of three games in three days for the Eagles. It's the first time Matt Erhart's squad has played that many games in such a short amount of time this season.

The Rivermen are coming off a 3-1 loss in Coquitlam on Sunday afternoon. It was the third game in three days for Langley after the pair of games against the Eagles on Friday and Saturday. Langley sits in last in the Mainland Division heading into tonight's action -- one point back of Surrey. The Eagles also have a game in hand. The Rivermen also made a major trade yesterday, sending youngster Bo Pellah to Alberni Valley in exchange for forward Evan Anderson and defenseman Turner Popoff.
