Pre-Game Report: Game 6 - Fred Page Cup Final

The Surrey Eagles will have a chance to capture their first Fred Page Cup since 2005 on Sunday when they visit the Penticton Vees for Game 6 of the BCHL Final. The Birds lead the series 3-2 after a dramatic 2-1 overtime win in Game 5 on Thursday night. The home team was won every game in the series to this point.

The Eagles have had depth scoring from throughout the lineup in this series. After Kevan Kilistoff's OT winner on Thursday, the Birds have now scored 13 goals against the Vees with eight different players finding the back of the net. In the defensive zone, Surrey has allowed nine Penticton goals on 189 shots -- leaving goaltender Michael Santaguida with a 1.78 goals-against average and a .952 save percentage in the five games thus far.

Thursday was a night of missed chances for Penticton. Both John Siemer and Michael Rebry had golden opportunities to score in regulation but couldn't will the puck to cross the goal line. As a result, the Vees find themselves in a must-win scenario for the first time since last year's Royal Bank Cup. Penticton remains undefeated at the South Okanagan Events Centre in the playoffs with a perfect 7-0 record.
