Pre-Game Report: Game 5 - Fred Page Cup Final

The Surrey Eagles and Penticton Vees will resume the BCHL Championship series on Thursday night at the South Surrey Arena for a pivotal Game 5. The series is now a best-of-three after each team won twice in the opening four games.

The Birds will be looking to maintain the trend of victories by the home team in the series after dropping back-to-back games in Penticton by one goal. Prior to the trip to the Okanagan, Surrey hadn't dropped two consecutive games since early December. Despite the loss in Game 4, it was a notable evening for Anthony Brito as the 20-year-old affiliate player from the Delta Ice Hawks netted his first BCHL goal.

For both games at the SOEC, Penticton left it late but got the necessary offense in the third period. In Game 3, Cody DePourcq scored the winner with less than 10 minutes remaining while the Vees got all three goals in the third period of their 3-2 win in Game 4. Penticton's power play came to life at home after failing to score in the opening two games of the series as the Vees operated at 40 per cent on the man advantage in Penticton.
