Pre-Game Report: Eagles vs. Silverbacks

The Surrey Eagles will host the Salmon Arm Silverbacks on Sunday afternoon in the second and final meeting in the season series. The Birds defeated the 'Backs 3-2 in overtime back on November 9th at the Shaw Centre. Jordan Klimek scored in the first extra period to give Surrey the win on that occasion. Both teams will be playing their third game in three days.

The Birds are coming off a pair of victories over Chilliwack and Langley on Friday and Saturday. Surrey sits in first in the Mainland Division, one point up on the Chiefs. The Eagles also have a game in hand which they will make up today as Chilliwack is idle. This weekend is only the third time that the Birds have played three games in three days. Surrey is undefeated in three-in-three scenarios this season with a record of 8-0-0-0. The Eagles' depth scoring has been strong this weekend as both Nic Pierog and Kevan Kilistoff are on two game scoring streaks. The two forwards have 11 goals between them this year.

Salmon Arm sits in fourth in the Interior Division. The Silverbacks have a three point lead on the fifth place Trail Smoke Eaters, but Salmon Arm also has four games in hand on the Smokies. The 'Backs are completing a lower mainland road-trip and are coming off a Friday night loss to the Langley Rivermen followed by a Saturday evening victory in Chilliwack over the Chiefs. Defenseman Shane Hanna leads the Salmon Arm club in scoring with eight goals and 28 assists. The Salmon Arm native committed to attend Michigan Tech earlier this week along with Eagles forward Demico Hannoun.
