The Break Down

The Lethbridge Hurricanes look to extend their winning streak to four games for the first time this season as they welcome the Kootenay Ice to the ENMAX Centre.

The Hurricanes are coming off a 5-3 win on Saturday night against the Saskatoon Blades at home. Giorgio Estephan scored twice, including the game winner, and added an assist in the victory. The win for the ‘Canes was their third straight and helped them to a 6-1-0-0 record in the month of February.

The Ice are coming off a 5-4 overtime loss to the same Blades on Sunday afternoon in Cranbrook. The Ice have lost two straight games and are under five-hundred in their last ten games posting a 4-5-1-0 record in that span.

What To Watch

Lethbridge Point of View

Midweek Success: The Hurricanes have had a lot of success during mid-week games this season. In fact, the ‘Canes have posted a record of 9-4-0-1 on Tuesday and Wednesday night games this year. The ‘Canes are an impressive 6-1-0-1 on Wednesday’s and 3-3-0-0 on Tuesday’s.

February Fun: The Hurricanes can actually say that they are one of the hottest teams in the WHL recently. After a 5-3 win on Saturday against the Saskatoon Blades, the ‘Canes have now won three straight games – the longest active winning streak in the WHL. The ‘Canes are also 6-1-0-0 in February with their only blemish coming against Brandon. Lethbridge are 7-3-0-0 in their last ten games

Kootenay Point of View

Aggravating Stars: When the Hurricanes win, they seem to get under the skin of the oppositions top players. And in their 6-3 win over the Ice in late January, Ryley Lindgren and company were able to get under the skin of Ice Captain Sam Reinhart. If the Ice want to escape town with a win, they have to hope Reinhart stays focused on scoring goals.

Tale Of Two Teams: Without Sam Reinhart, the Kootenay Ice started the season a dismal 3-13-0-0. However, since having Reinhart return from the NHL’s Buffalo Sabres, the Ice have racked up an impressive 25-13-0-1 record heading into this past weekend’s action; a pace that would see them reach 46 victories on the year.
