Pre-Game Report: Eagles at Clippers

The Surrey Eagles will conclude their two game Island Division road-trip on Sunday afternoon when they visit the Nanaimo Clippers. The game will mark the first meeting between the two teams this season and Surrey's only visit to Frank Crane Arena.

The Birds are coming off a tight checking 2-1 loss to the Victoria Grizzlies on Saturday night. It was the first time the Eagles have lost in regulation on the road since October 27th. Surrey has been strong away from the friendly confines of the South Surrey Arena with a road record of 8-4-0-1 this season. Sunday's game will mark forward Mason Blacklock's return to Nanaimo. The White Rock native was acquired from the Clippers in mid-September.

Heading into Sunday's action, the Clippers sit in fourth in the Island Division with a huge 14 point lead on the Cowichan Valley Capitals. Nanaimo is on a three game losing streak after dropping two games to Powell River and one to Victoria. The Clips have also had a tough time against the Mainland Division this season with a record of 1-3-0-0. That one win came against the last place Langley Rivermen back on November 16th. Nanaimo native Greg Fraser leads the Clippers with 30 points on the season.
