Pre-Game Report: Eagles vs. Spruce Kings

The Surrey Eagles will go for their third straight victory when they host the Prince George Spruce Kings tonight at the South Surrey Arena. This evening's game is the third meeting between the two teams this season. Prince George has won both games so far, picked up a 4-1 win in Surrey on October 5th before triumphing 3-0 at the Prince George Coliseum on October 13th.

Surrey will be playing its third game in three nights for the first time this season. The Eagles are coming off road wins in Langley and Merritt. Michael Stenerson returned to the line-up against the Centennials on Friday night and scored his sixth of the season. The Birds currently sit in a third place tie in the Mainland Division with a record of 10-6-0-1 and 21 points to their name. Coquitlam also has 21 points but has played one less game, meaning the Eagles technically sit in fourth.

Prince George sits in first place in the Mainland Division but is coming off a 5-1 loss on Friday night in Langley. The loss snapped a six game winning streak for the Spruce Kings who had a strong month of October, winning seven of nine games. It's been scoring by committee for PG this year as 10 players have put up at least 10 points on the season, but none of them are in the top 20 in league scoring.

The Surrey Eagles players will be growing (or attempting to grow) their moustaches to help raise money and awareness for men’s health issues. At all Eagles home games in the month of November there will be a table set up on the concourse where you can donate to Movember Canada.
