Myrol’s hat trick gets Eagles back in win column

After playing a grueling stretch of 15 games in 30 days, the Eagles got to enjoy some much
needed rest as they were back in action for the first time since last Saturday. The Eagles were
also looking to snap 6-game winless streak (0-4-2) and they were able to accomplish that as
they dispatched the Calgary Canucks 5-2 at Ken Bracko Arena in Calgary.
The Eagles were led by netmider Andrei Proctor-Ramirez who was outstanding as he made 37
saves on 39 shots. Proctor-Ramirez who was pulled early in the 1st period in his last start vs the
Spruce Grove Saints was able to have a great bounce back performance like he
has all season long.
“I really liked our goaltending tonight” says Eagles Head Coach and General Manager Andrew
Milne. He made some big saves early and that allowed us to get going. We started to play well
halfway through the first. Manny is very focused and such a competitive guy, I knew he would
respond. And obviously I thought Carter was outstanding tonight”.
Carter Myrol was the one who got the Eagles on the board only 2:23 into the game with Kyle
Young getting the assist to give the Eagles a 1-0 lead. The Canucks answered back to tie the
game at 8:26 on a goal from Aidan Moore. The Eagles regained the lead on a goal from Kyle
Young at 14:24, his 12 th of the season. Ethan Schaffer drew the assist. Then at 17:38, Riley
Dekowny extended the Eagles lead to 3-1 with Drae Gardiner getting the assist. Before the end
of the period, the Canucks got a power play goal from Aidan Moore with his 2nd of the night to
make the score 3-2 Eagles after 20 minutes.
But early in the 2nd frame (38 secs in), the Eagles regained their 2-goal cushion on a power play
goal from Myrol his 2nd of the game. Late in the period, Myrol again with his
hat trick goal made it 5-2 Eagles.  
The 3rd period was scoreless as the Eagles hang on to improve their record to 19-27-9 for 47
points. The final shots on goal were 39-26 in favour of the Canucks.
In the South Division standings, the Eagles are tied with the Blackfalds Bulldogs for 5 th place.
They also trail the Okotoks Oilers for 4 th place by 7 points. Okotoks and Blackfalds however have
3 more games to play than the Eagles, who only have 5 games left on their regular season
schedule.
The Eagles get to enjoy some more rest before their next game as their action is on Thursday
night as they host the 2 nd place team in the South Division, the Drumheller Dragons (30-15-8).
Puck drop is 7 pm. The Eagles won the last 2 meetings between the two teams.
