After completing an epic comeback in the previous game against their division rivals, the Eagles would be unable to come away with another victory as they would ultimately fall 4-3 in a shootout. Jesse Mychan would lead the Eagles with two goals, continuing his pace as one of the Eagles best players as he was called up the San Antonio Rampage for a stint; and will more than likely be called up again as the season rolls along.
