Pre-Game Report: Game 3 - Fred Page Cup Final

The Surrey Eagles will visit the South Okanagan Events Centre on Monday evening to take on the Penticton Vees in Game 3 of the Fred Page Cup Final. The Birds hold a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series after back-to-back wins on home ice.

The Eagles have now stretched their playoff winning streak to 11 games and are a perfect 5-0 on the road in the post-season. Goaltender Michael Santaguida has had an exceptional series to this point, posting a 1.00 goals-against average and a .976 save percentage through the first two games. Special teams have been a big factor in the series for the Birds as well. Surrey is 33.33% on the power play and a perfect 100% on the penalty kill.

Despite the fact that the Vees have out shot the Eagles 83-55 through two games, Penticton's top guns have struggled to score in the series. The Vees have now gone without a goal in the last 91:53 of action and will be hoping that a return to the friendly confines of the SOEC will spark some offensive production. Penticton is undefeated on home ice in the playoffs, and the Vees have been very strong in their own barn all year long, posting a regular season record of 19-7-0-2.
