Pre-Game Report: Giants vs. Oil Kings

The Vancouver Giants (7-10-1-1) will take on the Edmonton Oil Kings (9-7-0-1) at the Pacific Coliseum on Tuesday night in the first of three meetings between the teams this season. Edmonton went 2-0 against Vancouver last year, winning both games against the Giants by scores of 5-1 and 5-0.

The Giants are coming off a couple of well deserved days off after a stretch of eight games in 11 days. Vancouver won on the road in Kamloops on Saturday, edging the Blazers 4-3 in a shootout. Jackson Houck had an assist in the win, extending his point streak to seven games. The G-Men have an opportunity to vault themselves into eighth in the Western Conference on Tuesday as a win over the Oil Kings would move Vancouver ahead of the Prince George Cougars in the standings.

The Oil Kings have won four of their last five games and are coming off a Sunday night victory over the Calgary Hitmen. The Edmonton club is led by first round NHL picks Griffin Reinhart, Curtis Lazar and Henrik Samuelsson. The three have combined for 51 points thus far this year while Pittsburgh Penguins prospect Tristan Jarry has been strong between the pipes, posting a 2.37 goals-against average in 16 games played.
