The Break Down

The Lethbridge Hurricanes head back out on the road as they kick off a five game road swing tonight in Red Deer against the Rebels. The Hurricanes are coming off a 3-2 overtime loss on Thursday night to the Edmonton Oil Kings at home, a loss that was the ‘Canes fifth straight defeat after winning six of seven.

The Hurricanes have been playing pretty good hockey, however, in the five game slide and have fallen to all playoff teams. The ‘Canes look to hand Red Deer another loss after beating them two weeks ago at the Centrium.

The Rebels are below five-hundred in their last ten games, but have won two straight games, the latest a 5-3 win last night over the Prince Albert Raiders at home.

What To Watch

Lethbridge Point of View

On The Road Again: After a pit stop at home on Thursday, the Hurricanes continue their biggest ‘road’ trip of the season as tonight will be game number five of a nine game span that sees the ‘Canes play in nine different cities. This is the first of five straight away from home.

February Fun: After an overtime loss the Hurricanes currently sit with a 6-4-2-0 record in the month of February and whether win or loss tonight, the ‘Canes will finish the month with an above five-hundred record for the first time since February of 2012. That is a span of 20 months (of just hockey season, not including off-season).

Red Deer Point of View

Finding It Again: After a bit of a struggle in a six game span for the Rebels, the Red Deer club is starting to find their way again. The Rebels have picked up back to back wins over Edmonton and again last night with a 5-3 win over the Raiders.

Captain-less: The Rebels have been without their Captain Conner Bleackley for the last little while. Bleackley, the Colorado Avalanche first rounder is a pure sniper and still leads the Rebels in goals with 27.
