FROM THE BOOTH: Langley 4 | 3 Surrey (OT)

Last night's action was my first trip back to the Langley Events Centre since working there all day every day for two weeks three years ago with Hockey Canada during the 2011 World Junior A Challenge. It was strange to be back in the space where my hockey broadcasting career began -- to walk the halls that held my very first sports interviews, to set up my gear in a press box above the seats I'd sat in and watched every game of that tournament. All of the tournament banners and international flags long since packed up and gone, I could still see it all how it was then, as though the space was haunted by the ghost of not-so-distant memories.

The Eagles were similarly haunted by a ghost of the past last night, by a goaltender they sent to Langley before this season began. Surrey's first victory of the season, some ten days earlier, came over Bo Didur and his new club, the Langley Rivermen. And despite a Herculean effort between the pipes by Eagles netminder Christian Short, it was Didur who laughed last on this night:

BREAKING DOWN THE DEALS: Eagles soar after acquiring Andy Chugg and Zane Schartz

A little late getting some thoughts up on the last week of Eagles activity and games, but here we go. We'll begin with the flurry of activity that took place last Wednesday, as the team made a pair of moves to bolster their back-end.

If you haven't yet, you can get the full details on these moves from the official press release I typed up after the deals went down. But I'll say a little more about it here now that Chugg and Schartz have played a few games with the team (two out of three of which have been victories).
