Speedy forward Scott Cuthrell had a four-point weekend that included three goals, Matt Menta and Ryan Urso also produced four points each and goalie Paige Skoog stopped 48 of 52 shots in the two Soo wins.

What you think about “Four-point weekend for Eagles”
2 good crowds and 2 big wins by the Eagles this weekend. I liked the way Cuthrel and Belger played up front Menta too and Skoog in the nets but more players need to step it up. imho.
