Surrey Eagles erased a 3-0 deficit with five unanswered goals to defeat Powell River Kings 5-3 on Monday, April 19, in the BC Hockey League pod in Burnaby.
Josh Kagan scored the only first-period goal on a power play to put the Kings ahead 1-0; the lead was extended to three in the second period after Kagan and Curtis Gould set up Ben Raymond’s fourth of the season, followed by Dylan Malarchuk and Caleb Parkhouse assisting on the first of the campaign for Lex Friesen with 5:45 remaining in the period.
Surrey took over the game from that point, getting on the scoreboard three minutes before the second intermission with an even-strength goal, then converting on three power plays in a five-minute span in the third period before adding an insurance marker into an empty net.
With the win, Surrey improved its record versus Powell River this season to four wins and one loss.
Nick Peters made 22 saves on 26 shots for the Kings; his teammates directed 32 shots at the Eagles’ net.
Kagan is tied for the league lead in goals with 11.
Powell River’s next game is at 8 pm on Wednesday, April 21, against Coquitlam.
