Pre-Game Report: Giants vs. Cougars

The Vancouver Giants (21-15-5-2) will host the Prince George Cougars (16-22-2-4) on Friday night at the Pacific Coliseum in the final meeting between the two teams in the regular season. The Giants have won five of seven meetings with the Cougars thus far this year, most recently picking up a 5-2 win on December 30th.

The Vancouver club is coming off a 4-2 victory over the Tri-City Americans on Sunday. The G-Men now sit four points back of the fourth place Seattle Thunderbirds. Vancouver GM Scott Bonner acquired 19-year-old import forward Dominik Volek from the Red Deer Rebels on Thursday. The native of Praha, Czech Republic has 15 goals and 9 assists in 32 WHL games this season. Giants captain Dalton Thrower enters Friday's action on a four game point streak.

The Cougars hosted the Seattle Thunderbirds for back-to-back games on Tuesday and Wednesday but lost them both by 9-7 and 2-1 scores. Prince George forward Zach Pochiro has picked up at least a point in his last eight games including a four point night in Tuesday's high scoring loss. The Cougars are on the outside of the playoff picture at the moment as they're four point back of eighth place Tri-City, and the Americans also have two games in hand.
