The Break Down

The Lethbridge Hurricanes wrap up a three-game East Division road trip tonight as they visit the Prince Albert Raiders for the final time this season.

The Hurricanes are coming off a 2-1 win a night ago in Saskatoon having earned their 20th victory of the season. Tyler Wong scored for the third straight game, while Carter Folk added the winner. Stuart Skinner was sensational making 41 saves in the win for his 13th victory of the season.

The Raiders themselves are coming off a big victory last night having knocked off the Brandon Wheat Kings. Prince Albert’s playoff hopes are slim, but they are not mathematically eliminated.

What To Watch

Sensational Skinner: Stuart Skinner has been lights out over the past month. Another 41 saves and one goal against last night in a 2-1 win over Saskatoon. In his last eight starts, Skinner has posted a 5-1-2-0 record while posting an impressive 2.86 goals against average and a .931 save percentage.

Series Win: Last night the Hurricanes swept the season series with the Saskatoon Blades. Tonight, they can win win the season series with the Prince Albert Raiders. The Hurricanes have won two of the first three against the Raiders.

Prince Albert Point of View

Some Big Wins: While the Raiders are only 3-3-0-0 in their last six games, two of those victories have come against the Brandon Wheat Kings – both of them in regulation. The Raiders are coming off a 5-2 win last night against the Eastern Conference leaders.

Rockets Leftovers: Two massive trades with the Kelowna Rockets have helped shape the new look Raiders. The Raiders traded Gage Quinney, Josh Morrissey, and Leon Draisaitl to the Rockets in two separate trades getting back Jesse Lees, Dalton Yorke, Kris Schmidli, and Austin Glover. All of whom have been succeeding since being acquired from Kelowna.
