The Eagles enter Friday on a three game winning streak after victories over Chilliwack and Coquitlam last weekend. Michael Santaguida has been playing his best hockey of the season between the pipes of late as he hasn't allowed a goal in his last 146 minutes and 25 seconds of action. The race for the Mainland Division crown will now begin in earnest with the Birds sitting only one point behind Chilliwack for the top spot in the division. The Chiefs also play on Friday as they host Coquitlam.
Trail will return from the holiday break on Friday. The Smokies last played on December 18th, picking up a 4-2 win over the Merritt Centennials, and find themselves in a race for the final playoff spot in the Interior Division. Trail currently sits in fifth, one point behind fourth place Salmon Arm, but the Smokies have played three more games than the Silverbacks. Up front, Trail is led by Brent Baltus who has 37 points in 33 games this season.
