After a successful weekend at the Bauer BCHL Showcase, where the Rivermen put together back to back wins, the Men’ make the trip to the confines of the Nest (South Surrey Arena) to take on the Eagles tonight. The Men’ are looking to make it three wins in a row tonight.
The Men’ will have quite the task ahead of them as they take on the defending champion Eagles. Surrey will be raising their championship banner tonight and you know the fans will be backing their team 100%, making it a possible hostile environment for Langley.
The Rivermen definitely have momentum on their side going into tonight’s game and will be looking to silence the crowd early on. The work ethic from Langley the first two games of the season were instrumental in their success in the 2 wins. Solid goaltending also played a factor as James Barr and Brock Crossthwaite recorded their first wins of the season.
The Surrey Eagles had a pretty good showing at the BCHL Showcase as well going 1-1. Like the Rivermen, the Eagles recorded their first shutout of the season with a 3-0 victory over the West Kelowna Warriors in their first game of the showcase.
Who to watch:
Langley – Will Cook- since coming over from the Coquitlam Express, Cook has been a setup specialist registering 3 assists in the team’s first 2 games.
Surrey – Braeden Russell-should be on the Rivermen’s radar after he recorded his first multi goal game with 2 goals in a losing cause against the Vernon Vipers.
Both teams seem pretty evenly matched and should make for a great game to watch.
