Pre-Game Report: Giants at Royals

The Vancouver Giants (26-19-5-3) and Victoria Royals (33-16-0-3) will face-off in the provincial capital for the second time in as many nights on Saturday at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre. The G-Men are 4-3-0-0 in the season series against their BC Division rivals.

The Giants won their second straight game with a 5-4 shootout win over the Royals on Saturday. The victory vaulted the G-Men past the Everett Silvertips into sixth in the Western Conference. Dalton Sward had another shorthanded goal in the win, moving him into a tie for first in the league with Mitch Holmberg of the Spokane Chiefs while the 20-year-old also tied James Henry's Giants franchise record for shorthanded goals in a season.

Friday's loss at the hands of the Giants snapped a three-game winning streak for the Royals. The Victoria club now sits tied for third in the Western Conference with the Seattle Thunderbirds. Despite the loss, Brandon Magee extended his point streak to six games by tallying a goal and an assist. The Royals will hold their third annual "Pink in the Rink" night on Saturday in support of the BC Cancer Foundation.
