Generals Host Seattle for Battle at the Top

The NORPAC Pacific Division leading Eugene Generals (18-3) will host the second place Seattle Totems (15-2) for a battle of the top two teams in the Pacific Division this Sunday at Lane Events Center-Ice at 5:50 PM.

The Generals lead the division by six points, but the Totems have four games in hand over the Generals. The Totems will make up those four games before the two teams meet in Eugene on Sunday. The Generals and Totems split their only two meetings of the season in Mountlake Terrace, WA on the last weekend in October. The Generals won the first contest 5-4 in OT, and the Totems won the second contest 5-4 in regulation. Both teams have given each other their last losses of the 2008/09 season.

Since the loss against Seattle the Generals have won a franchise record eleven consecutive games, and seven road games. The Generals set the record of ten consecutive games won twice last season, and will be looking to extend their streak, and avenge their last loss, this Sunday.

“Seattle is an extremely tough team,” Generals Head Coach Jay Miller stated. “Whenever we play the Totems it is sure to be a very heated contest. We have to minimize our mistakes, focus on the defensive side of the ice and capitalize on our opportunities. If we can accomplish those three goals we should have a great chance this weekend.”

The Generals are 10-12 all-time against the Totems, and lost the season series to the team from Seattle 2-6 last season. The Generals have already secured ties in the season series against the Rogue Valley Wranglers, Coeur d’Alene Lakers and the Puget Sound Tomahawks. The Generals are looking to win every season series this season, and a win against the Totems this Sunday will bring the Generals one game closer to accomplishing that goal.

The game this Sunday against the Totems at 5:50 PM at Lane Events Center-Ice will be broadcast on GiTV. For more information on upcoming games please visit eugenegenerals.com.
