Pre-Game Report: Eagles vs. Spruce Kings

The Surrey Eagles will play their final game before the winter break on Sunday afternoon when the Prince George Spruce Kings visit the South Surrey Arena. The two teams have already faced each other five times this season with the Eagles winning three of those games. All of Surrey's wins over Prince George have come in overtime.

The Birds are coming off a 5-5 tie with Powell River on Friday evening. Goaltender Michael Santaguida conceded all five goals on 35 shots. It's only the third time this season that the Mississauga native has given up more than three goals in a single game. After a month of November in which Surrey won nine of 11 games, the Eagles have gone winless in their last three. Heading into Sunday's game, the Birds sit in third in the Mainland Division with 37 points in 29 games.

Prince George will play its third game in as many days on Sunday after a 7-0 loss in Victoria on Friday and a 4-3 victory against Cowichan Valley on Saturday. The win in Duncan vaulted the Spruce Kings past the Eagles into second place in the Mainland Division, although Surrey has three games in hand. Prince George has the longest holiday break in the BCHL as the Spruce Kings won't play again until January 4th after Sunday's game.

The Eagles will be collecting donations to the Surrey Food Bank at Sunday's game. Fans can bring a non-perishable food item to the rink or donate money at the game as well.
