Pre-Game Report: Eagles at Chiefs

For just the second time this season, the Surrey Eagles will visit the Prospera Centre on Saturday night to take on the Chilliwack Chiefs. It's the second game in as many nights between the two teams after the Birds skated away with a 5-3 win on Friday night in Surrey.

Friday's win broke a four game winless skid for the Eagles and improved Surrey's head-to-head record with the Chiefs to 2-2-0-1. Nic Pierog had a strong night for the Birds on Friday, tallying three points for his first multi-point game of the season. Tonight, the Eagles will look to win two in a row for the first time since a four game winning streak at the end of November. Surrey has a record of 2-3-0-1 in the second game of back-to-back scenarios this season.

The loss on Friday was just the ninth time the Chiefs have lost in regulation this season, and the first time Chilliwack has failed to pick up at least a point when leading after two periods. Only four of Chilliwack's regulation losses have come on home ice where the Chiefs have won nine of 14. In Surrey's only other visit to Prospera Centre, Chilliwack skated away with a 4-2 win back on September 15th. All of the remaining games in the season series will be played in Chilliwack.
