Eagles Host San Jose in Holiday Matchup

Dec 20, 2021


The Colorado Eagles will face off against the San Jose Barracuda in the teams’ fifth matchup of the season at the Budweiser Events Center in Loveland on Tuesday.

The Eagles last saw the Barracuda in California on Wednesday, December 15, where they suffered a 10-5 loss. San Jose forward Evander Kane scored a goal and three assists in their matchup with Colorado. Five Eagles players notched goals last week including co-captain Jayson Megna, forwards Shane Bowers, Dylan Sikura, Martin Kaut and defenseman Rob Hamilton, but the Eagles still did not come out on top. Goaltender Justus Annunen allowed eight goals on 32 shots during his near 50 minutes of play.

The Barracuda are coming into the game off of a 4-1 victory against the San Diego Gulls, and the Eagles are returning to Loveland following a 5-2 loss to the Stockton Heat. Colorado has gone 1-3-0 against the San Jose Barracuda this year but will look to notch a win against the team tonight.
