Pre-Game Report: Eagles vs. Bearcats

The Surrey Eagles will play their first game at the 2013 RBC Cup against the Truro Bearcats on Sunday. The game marks the first ever meeting between the two clubs. The Bearcats qualified for the RBC by winning the Fred Page Cup -- the eastern regional tournament -- which they hosted.

The Birds haven't played in over a week after defeating the Brooks Bandits in the final at the Western Canada Cup last Saturday in Nanaimo. Surrey will be the last team at the RBC to play a game as the other four teams all opened the tournament on Saturday. Sunday's action will mark the first game at the RBC for the Eagles since May 10, 1998 when the Birds captured the national title with a 4-1 win over the Weyburn Red Wings from Saskatchewan.

Truro is playing in its first ever RBC. The Nova Scotia club opened the tournament with a 7-1 loss at the hands of Brooks on Saturday. Goaltender Shayne Campbell was given the hook early in the second period after allowing six goals. Jordan Coccimiglio scored the lone marker for the Bearcats while Adam Guy was named Truro's player of the game. Up front, Kyle Morrison led the Maritime Hockey League in points in the regular season with 35 goals and 53 assists in 50 games.
