The Colorado Eagles return to action tonight at the Budweiser

Events Center at 7:05 p.m. against the Lubbock Cotton Kings.

On Nov. 15, the Eagles were in Lubbock, Texas, and defeated the

Cotton Kings 3-1 as Phil Crowe was named the top star with his

first game-winner of the season in a third period that was filled

with fisticuffs.

Today’s match-up is the first of a six-game home stand as the

Eagles look to extend their home winning streak beyond four

games.

The Eagles started the season off slow at 2-4, but have caught

fire, earning 15 of a possible 16 points in their last eight games.

At 9-4-1 the Eagles are first in the Northwest Division and third

overall in the Central Hockey League.

Most of the success has been due to the Eagles’ top line of Greg

Pankewicz, Ryan Tobler and Riley Nelson, as they have combined for

26 of the team’s 50 goals and 62 of the 142 total points.

Pankewicz and Tobler are both tied for second in the league in

scoring with 23 points a piece.

On the defensive end, the Eagles have been riding the wave of

goaltender Ryan Bach, who has played every game, minute and second

of the Eagles’ season.

Bach leads the league in wins (nine) and minutes played (845)

and is third in goals against average at 2.41.

Defenseman and assistant coach Brent Thompson also leads all

defensemen with 69 penalty minutes.

The Eagles will continue their home stand on Friday and Saturday

night against the Indianapolis Ice. For those games, the puck drops

at 7:05 p.m.
