The Lethbridge Hurricanes play the second of a three-in-three weekend tonight in the back half of a home-and-home with the Medicine Hat Tigers. The ‘Canes took the first of the back-to-back with the Tigers last night 4-3 in Lethbridge.
Tyler Wong, Brayden Burke, Giorgio Estephan and Carter Folk all scored in the game while Jayden Sittler made 34 stops for his fourth win as a Hurricane. Trevor Cox, Cole Sanford and Chad Labelle scored the goals for the Tigers.
Tonight will be the final time this season that the Hurricanes and Tigers will meet.
Lethbridge Point of View
Top Line: After missing two games with an upper body injury, Tyler Wong returned to the line on Friday night and didn’t miss a beat playing on a line with Brayden Burke and Giorgio Estephan. Wong and Estephan each had a goal in the game, while Burke had a goal and two assists.
Confidence: As many people know, confidence is such a big part of sports. And the Hurricanes continue to look more and more like a confident group. The ‘Canes have won back-to-back games against divisional opponents and will shoot for three consecutive tonight.
Medicine Hat Point of View
Final Time in “The Arena”: Tonight will be the final time that the Tigers will host the Hurricanes at the legendary Medicine Hat Arena as the Tigers will move to new digs next season. The Tigers have dominated the ‘Canes at home. Lethbridge hasn’t won in The Hat since St. Patrick’s Day in 2012.
Goalie Controversy?: Not really, Marek Langhamer is certainly the undisputed number one goaltender for the Tigers, but it is ironic that in both Hurricanes wins against Medicine Hat their “Numer One” has been in the net. Langhamer is 0-2 this year against the ‘Canes while back-up Nick Schneider is 4-0.
