Sicamous is coming off its first loss under new head coach and general manager Nick Deschenes, as the Birds fell 4-1 to the Steam in Summerland Saturday, Jan. 22.
Dmytry Dyskin had the only goal for Sicamous, which had won its first three games with Deschenes behind the bench.
Gage Reimer made 24 saves for the Eagles (9-19-2-0), who have a three-point lead on the fifth-place Wranglers in the Doug Birks Division. Sicamous is 10 points behind the Chase Heat, who beat the Kamloops Storm 2-1 Friday at the Art Holding Memorial Arena.
