The Canmore Eagles will put their modest three-game winning streak on the line on Tuesday night (Nov. 10) when they host the visiting Calgary Canucks at the Canmore Recreation Centre. Game time is 7 PM.
The Eagles currently sit in third-place in the Alberta Junior Hockey League’s Southern Division standings with 26 points and a record of 12-7-2, while the Canucks occupy 7th-place in the standings with 15 points and a record of 7-15-1.
In their only meeting this season on November 4 in Calgary, the Eagles scored three power-play goals to defeat the Canucks 5-2.
“We’ve been playing some very good hockey of late, but as we learned from the Olds Grizzlys a few weeks ago (a 4-3 OT home loss on Oct. 30), we can’t afford to take anyone or any game for granted,” said Eagles Head Coach and General Manager Andrew Milne. “We just played the Canucks a week ago and it was a close 3-2 game going into the third period, and if we hadn’t got a few key stops from our goaltender at the right times, we might have been in trouble. We have a couple of road games coming up after Tuesday’s home game, so we have to take advantage of our home-ice while we can.”
