Pre-Game Report: Eagles vs. Clippers

The Surrey Eagles will take on the host Nanaimo Clippers in their third game at the Crescent Point Energy Western Canada Cup at Frank Crane Arena on Tuesday night. The two teams split their season series in the BCHL, each picking up a regulation win.

The Birds are coming off their first win of the tournament after they defeated the Steinbach Pistons 5-3 on Monday night. Trevor Cameron was the best Surrey player on the ice, scoring twice and generating a few more chances in the win as well. Heading into Tuesday's action, the Eagles will have a chance to move ahead of the Clippers in the WCC standings with a win as both teams are in a three-way tie with the Brooks Bandits for second place at 1-1.

Following their first round exit in the BCHL Playoffs at the hands of the Alberni Valley Bulldogs, the Clippers had over a month off to prepare for the WCC. Nanaimo opened the tournament with a close, hard fought match up against the Yorkton Terriers -- a game which the Clips lost 4-3. Nanaimo bounced back with a strong effort in the second game of the tournament as the Clippers power play converted four times in a 7-2 win over the Brooks Bandits.
