Pre-Game Report: Giants vs. Hitmen

The Vancouver Giants (27-19-6-3) will host the Calgary Hitmen (33-15-3-3) on Friday night at the Rink on Renfrew in the second and final meeting between the teams this season. Vancouver took the first game 4-3 in overtime back on October 23rd with Tim Traber netting the winning goal.

The G-Men have picked up at least a point in their last four games and are coming off a 3-2 overtime win over the Red Deer Rebels at the Coliseum on Tuesday night. Vancouver now holds a three point lead on the Everett Silvertips for sixth place in the Western Conference. Cain Franson, who scored the overtime winner on Tuesday, is on a four-game point streak in which he has put up four goals and one assist while Thomas Foster has posted two goals and two assists in his last three games.

The Hitmen picked up a split in a mid-week double header on Vancouver Island against the Victoria Royals. After losing the first meeting 7-2 on Tuesday night, the Calgary squad overcame a four-goal deficit in the second period on Wednesday to win 7-6 in overtime. The Hitmen sit in third in the Eastern Conference standings although they have the second most points, but the Brandon Wheat Kings occupy second place by virtue of the fact that they lead the East Division.
