Pre-Game Report: Eagles at Vipers

The Surrey Eagles will conclude their two game Interior Division road trip tonight in Vernon against the Vipers. It's the second time the teams have faced each other this season. The Birds picked up a 5-3 win at the South Surrey Arena back on October 19th.

Surrey has won its last four games in a row and is coming off a 3-2 overtime victory last night in Salmon Arm. Jordan Klimek had the winning goal in overtime. The 17-year-old defenseman now has three goals this season, and two of them have been overtime winners. Last night's victory lifted the Birds into second place in the Mainland Division, three points back of Chilliwack. Craig Wyszomirski will return to the Eagles line-up tonight after serving his two game suspension.

The Vipers lost in overtime to Trail on Friday evening but have been trending in the right direction of late, winning three of their last four games. One of those wins was a 9-2 shellacking of the Smoke Eaters. The team's top scorer, Adam Tambellini, had four points in that game. The son of Edmonton Oilers General Manager Steve Tambellini has put up 22 points in 19 games this year. Vernon sits in fifth in the Interior Division with a record of 6-7-0-6.
