The Lethbridge Hurricanes look to get back to winning ways Sunday when they host the Prince Albert Raiders. The Hurricanes have lost a season-long eight straight games. The ‘Canes are coming off their second 5-1 loss in a row last night to the Moose Jaw Warriors.
Today, they play their first Sunday home game against a Raiders club they’ve already beaten twice this year. The ‘Canes skated to a 3-1 win October 25th in Prince Albert, while following it up with a 5-2 triumph at the ENMAX Centre on the 29th of October.
Lethbridge Point of View
Sheen-ery: Riley Sheen has proved in the past that he is an offensive catalyst and can create something out of nothing, however, in recent weeks he hasn’t been as magical. While Sheen is the leading scorer for the Hurricanes, he hasn’t been his regular self and the ‘Canes need him to get back to a point per game pace if they want to put some wins together.
Raider Right Medicine: The Hurricanes enter this afternoon’s game against the Prince Albert Raiders having recorded a perfect 2-0 record against the club from Northern Saskatchewan. The ‘Canes have outscored the Raiders 8-3 in two games, and Andrew Nielsen has scored both of his WHL goals against PA.
Prince Albert Point of View
Two Straight: The Raiders enters today’s game having not played since Friday night when they skated to a 6-2 win over the Swift Current Broncos. Prince Albert has won two straight games and they will be the fresher team having had Saturday off.
New Bench Boss: This offseason saw countless teams change coaches, including Moose Jaw, Kelowna, Edmonton and Portland, and while the Raiders started the season with incumbent coach Cory Clouston, there has been a changing of guard behind the PA bench. At the beginning of November, Marc Habscheid was named the 14th coach in Raiders history. The club has been playing below five-hundred since the coaching change but remain in the conversation for a Wild Card playoff spot.
