Venue: Rolling Mix Concrete Arena
Game Time: 7pm
Season Series:  2-1-1-0, Spruce Kings lost first game 4-1, won the second game 4-2, tied 2-2 in the last game in Surrey, and beat the Eagles 9-3 last night.

 Game Overview:
It was the league’s worst goal scoring and allowing teams facing off last night, and Prince George would be the ones to roar off with the win. Kyle Johnson, Connor Logan, and Jarod Hovde all had two goals each, and Mattew Stief added three assists while centring the second line. Prince George only had three forward lines to use due to injury, but made advatagne of it, scoring three in the first, four in the second, and two in the third. Four on four was friendly for PG, as they scored three goals that way in the second. The win also marked the first win in the newly named “Rolling Mix Concrete Arena”
Prince George Home Record: 7-16-0-1
Spruce Kings Leading Scorer: Matt Stief – 4 goals / 34 assists / 38 points

Surrey Road Record: 2-22-0-0
Eagles Leading Scorer: Kurt Black – 18 goals / 20 assists / 38 points

Player to watch:
Spruce Kings: With a season long eight game goalless drought being quenched last night, Braiden Epp was all over the ice, and scored the final goal of the game. Epp was a pest during the game, and did an excellent job of getting under Surrey’s skin including goating Adamsen into a five minute cross checking penalty, as he was headed to the box himself. With his first BCHL goal out of the way coming on Wednesday, Cooper Prechel had a big offensive night adding an assist as well to double his season total in points to four. His two game point streak was snapped last night, and as one of just three PG skaters not to crack the scoresheet, he’ll want to add some points this time around.

Eagles: With seven points in his last nine games including a goal last night, Gage Mackie will be looking for more tonight. His speed generated a number of opportunities, and he will have some added motivation after the tough loss last night.
He got under the Spruce Kings skin last night, but PG did anequally good job of frustrating the Eagles leading scorer. Kurt Black took three separate penalties, and wound up getting kicked out later in the third.
