Puck Drop Preview

Puck Drop Preview

May 15, 2021

The Colorado Eagles will play in the final game of the regular season tonight against the San Diego Gulls.

San Diego scored the first three goals of the contest, as the Gulls raced to a 4-1 win over the Colorado Eagles on Friday. Four different skaters found the back of the net in the victory, while forward Mike Vecchione netted Colorado’s lone goal on the evening. San Diego was bolstered by goaltender Olle Eriksson Ek, who made 25 saves on 26 shots to earn his eighth win of the season in net.

Rookie goaltender Justus Annunen made his AHL debut last night, making 24 saves on 27 shots. The 21- year-old netminder was selected by the Avalanche in the third round of the 2018 NHL Entry Draft. Annunen led the SM-Liiga in his native Finland during the 2019-20 campaign with a 1.77 GAA and .929 save-percentage.

Tonight is the final game of six meetings between the Eagles and Gulls this season. Colorado is 1-3-1-0 against San Diego this season and has an overall record of 11-6-1-0 since joining the AHL in 2018.
