Lethbridge Point of View
Saddledome Scars: The Scotiabank Saddledome hasn’t been kind to the Hurricanes this season as Lethbridge has lost both contests by identical 9-2 scores. The last time in Calgary was on December 30th.

Calgary Point of View
Home Sweet Home: The Hitmen return home today after 11 straight games on the road with the Tim Horton’s Brier being held at the Saddledome. Calgary managed well in their franchise long road trip winning seven of the 11 games.
Tambellini Time: Adam Tambellini has been terrific in his overage season for the Hitmen. Tambellini leads the Hitmen in goals with 45 and points with 81. He picked up two assists last night against the Hurricanes. Tambellini signed an entry-level contract with the New York Rangers earlier this week.
