The Break Down

The Lethbridge Hurricanes have won three straight road games after a 3-1 road win Saturday night in Prince Albert against the Raiders. The ‘Canes have been winning games in different ways in their last three efforts.

With the winning streak, the Hurricanes have no jumped ahead of the Kootenay Ice for fifth in the Central Division and have a three point cushion over them. The ‘Canes are also just two points back of the Red Deer Rebels for fourth in the Division. They are also just two points out of a playoff spot.

The Pats are struggling as of late. Regina has lost five of their last six games, with their lone win over the Hurricanes last Saturday. Regina has lost four straight games since that win over Lethbridge, their most recent a 2-1 loss to the Swift Current Broncos last night at home.

What To Watch

Lethbridge Point of View

Cane Train Beginning to Roll: The Hurricanes have been very impressive on their current four game road trip having won each and every game. The ‘Canes are coming off a perfect road effort Saturday in Prince Albert with a 3-1 in.

Oh So Close: What a night for Stuart Skinner again. The 15-year-old was outstanding again and came within 39.9 seconds of his first WHL shutout in Prince Albert. Skinner has stopped 103 of the 107 shots he’s faced in the last three games – a save percentage of .963.

Regina Point of View

Losing Streak: Since coming into Lethbridge last Saturday and beating the Hurricanes by a 6-1 score, the Pats have lost four straight games. The latest, a 2-1 loss Saturday night to the Swift Current Broncos.

All Dried Up: In their last four games, the Pats have only scored one goal in each of the games. With the exception of the 6-1 win against the ‘Canes, the Pats have scored a goal or less in six of their last seven games.
