Pre-Game Report: Eagles vs. Express

The Surrey Eagles will go for their fourth straight win on Friday evening when the Coquitlam Express visit the South Surrey Arena. The game is also the Eagles annual Teddy Bear Toss night. Fans can bring teddy bears to the rink or purchase them from the Peace Arch Auxiliary at the game. All donated bears will go to the Surrey Christmas Bureau.

The Birds are coming off a big 7-3 win in Langley on Tuesday. Brady Shaw became the third member of the Eagles to net a hat-trick this season in the win, joining Devon Toews and Drew Best. Surrey is undefeated against Coquitlam this season with a pair of wins (2-1 on September 28th and 6-1 on November 12th). The Eagles sit four points behind the Chilliwack Chiefs for the top spot in the Mainland Division heading into Friday's action.

Coquitlam has been dealing with a rash of injuries over the last month, and while the Express are finally starting to get healthy, the team has undergone a number of changes of late, thanks to four trades in the last week and a half. Dillan Walker, Mark Begert, Jace Hennig and Brett Seldon all departed the team while Bradley Ryan, Travis Stephens and Michael Maciag have joined the Express. Despite the roster turnover, Coquitlam has won its last two in a row. Friday night's game will mark the return of former Eagles captain Brandon Morley to the nest. Morley was traded to Coquitlam in mid-October.
