Happy birthday Hal! The Halifax Mooseheads will be celebrating the “birth” of one of their beloved mascots today when they take on their provincial rival Cape Breton Screaming Eagles in the first Sunday afternoon matinee. Battle of Nova Scotia matchups are always exciting and with 19th overall Evgeny Svechnikov being reassigned, the Eagles got much better. Your Mooseheads will have a tough time to get a victory but with Eric Brassard in nets their chances are pretty good to make it an interesting game.
