Pre-Game Report: Eagles at Silverbacks

The Surrey Eagles will kick-off a two game Interior Division road trip on Friday night with a visit to Salmon Arm to face the Silverbacks. It's the first meeting between the two teams this season. Surrey won the lone match-up last year by a score of 2-1 on October 22, 2011.

The Birds enter tonight's action on a three game winning streak after victories last week over Langley, Merritt and Prince George. Over those three games, the Eagles scored eight goals with seven different players finding the net. Surrey enters play tonight in third in the Mainland Division. The Eagles have had good results this season against Interior Division opponents, going 4-1-0-0. Defenseman Craig Wyszomirski won't play tonight as the big blue liner will sit out the second game of his two game suspension.

Unlike the Eagles, the Silverbacks have been disappointing to this point in the season and find themselves in last place in the Interior Division with a record of 6-10-0-2. Salmon Arm is coming off a 2-1 overtime loss to Nanaimo last Saturday. Defenseman Shane Hanna, who has 15 points, is the only member of the Silverbacks squad to have posted more than 10 points through 18 games. The 'Backs have also struggled mightily in their own arena, managing only one win at the Shaw Centre in 10 home games.
