Pre-Game Report: Eagles at Spruce Kings

The Surrey Eagles will visit the Prince George Coliseum this evening for the first of two games in two nights against the Spruce Kings. Tonight's match-up is the fourth meeting between the two teams this season. The Birds are 1-2-0-0 against Prince George while the Spruce Kings have a record of 2-0-0-1 in the season series.

Surrey is in the middle of a stretch of six straight games against Mainland Division opponents. The Eagles sit in second place in the division heading into tonight's action and have a 6-5-0-1 record against teams in their own division this season. In their last game, the Birds lost 2-1 to the Chilliwack Chiefs a week ago. It was the team's first regulation time loss in the month of November. Surrey's only win against Prince George came in their last meeting, a 3-2 overtime win on November 3rd. Brady Shaw had the winner for the Eagles in that game.

The Spruce Kings will have some new faces in the line-up for tonight's game after the team completed a pair of trades yesterday. Prince George acquired defenseman Kevin Guiltinan from Vernon while shipping Liam Board to the Vipers. Meanwhile, d-man Bradley Ryan was traded to Coquitlam in exchange for forward Jace Hennig and blue liner Mark Begert. All three new additions are expected to play tonight. The moves come after a month of November that has seen Prince George win only one game and pick up four of a possible 12 points.
