The Eugene Generals (33-13) will end their regular season on home ice this Friday and Saturday against the Seattle Totems (41-5). The Generals are down 2-4 in the season series with the Totems, but are 2-0 against the team from Seattle at Lane Events Center-Ice this season. The Generals have yet to lose a season series this season, and can tie the Totems in the season series with two wins this weekend.
“This is our last opportunity to work out any kinks before the playoffs,” Generals Head Coach Chris Hartly stated. “Seattle is probably the toughest team in NORPAC, and we’d love to head into the playoffs with two wins against the Totems. We just have to take it one shift at a time, and play at peak performance for the full 60 minutes each game.”
The Generals have locked up third place in the NORPAC Pacific Division, and will be facing the Tri-City Titans in the Pacific Division Semi-Finals. The Totems have clinched first place in the Division, and will face the River City Jaguars in the Semi-Finals.
The Generals are 7-1 against the Totems all-time in Eugene, including two wins against the Totems in the Pacific Division Semi-Finals last season. The Totems have a league-best 19-3 away record this season, and will be looking to get a win in Eugene.
Saturday night will be the Second Annual Eugene Generals Fan Appreciation Night presented by Ronald McDonald House Charities®. The event will have multiple giveaways for the fans, as well as an autograph session with the Eugene Generals players and coaches after the game.
The games on Friday and Saturday at 7:35 PM against the Totems will be broadcast on GiTV. For more information on upcoming games, special events or GiTV please visit eugenegenerals.com.
