Pre-Game Report: Eagles at Grizzlies

The Surrey Eagles will play the first of a two game Island Division road trip tonight in Victoria against the Grizzlies. It will be the second and final meeting between the two teams. The Birds defeated the Grizzlies 3-2 back on September 21st at the South Surrey Arena.

Surrey ended the month of November with six straight divisional games, and the Birds skated away with five wins in those match-ups. The Eagles enter tonight's action on a four game winning streak and can move past the Chilliwack Chiefs into first in the Mainland Division if they beat both Victoria and Nanaimo this weekend. Meanwhile, Devon Toews has been hot of late for Surrey. The 18-year-old defenseman has put up six points over his last three games.

The Grizzlies are coming off a 3-2 victory over the Powell River Kings on Friday evening. Victoria has only lost once in regulation in its last eight games and currently sits in first place in the Island Division with a four point cushion on the Alberni Valley Bulldogs. The Fitzgerald triplets are clearly the top offensive threat for the Grizzlies. Myles, Leo and Gerry have combined for a whopping 75 points this season which accounts for over 30 per cent of the team's scoring.
