The Silverbacks are back down in the Fraser Valley today to take on the Surrey Eagles and wrap up the BCHL Showcase. The Backs opened the season and Showcase with a 4-2 victory over the Langley Rivermen on Friday night in Chilliwack. That game saw 21 power-plays, with the Silverbacks going 2-for-12 with the extra-man and 8-for-9 on the penalty-kill. Surrey opened the season with an 11-2 loss to Penticton on Friday, but Silverbacks Head Coach Brandon West isn’t underestimating the Mainland Division opponent.
