Pre-Game Report: Eagles vs. Kings

The Surrey Eagles will look to get back to their winning ways on Friday evening when they host the Powell River Kings at the South Surrey Arena. The game will mark the second meeting of the season between the Kings and Birds. Surrey skated away with a 3-2 overtime victory at the BCHL Showcase in Chilliwack on September 7th.

The Eagles are coming off back-to-back losses in Victoria and Nanaimo last weekend. It's only the second time the Birds have lost consecutive games this season and the first time the team has dropped two straight games in regulation time. Surrey has yet to lose three games in a row. After missing last weekend's road trip with the flu, Michael Santaguida is expected to start against Powell River on Friday.

Powell River sits in fourth in the Island Division, heading into Friday's action. However, the Kings are a comfortable 15 points up on the last place Cowichan Valley Capitals. The Kings are coming off a 3-2 loss to Victoria on December 7th but have won five of their last seven games. Goaltender Jonah Imoo, who started in goal for Team Canada West at the World Junior A Challenge in Nova Scotia, has been strong for Powell River this season, posting a record of 12-8-0 along with a 2.38 goals-against-average.
