The Break Down

The Lethbridge Hurricanes conclude their 2014-2015 regular season tonight when they travel to take on the Swift Current Broncos at 7pm.

The Hurricanes look to go out on a positive note and snap a seven game losing streak after falling 5-3 last night to the Broncos at the ENMAX Centre in the ‘Canes Home Finale. Jamal Watson, Giorgio Estephan and Mike Winther scored the goals for the Hurricanes in the losing cause while Jake DeBrusk led the Broncos to the win collecting four points (3g-1a).

Tonight will be the final game of the season and the final time that the ‘Canes will face the Broncos. After last night’s loss, the Hurricanes are 0-2-1-0 against Swift Current this season. The only other time the ‘Canes were in Swift Current this season, the Broncos picked up a 5-2 win at Credit Union i-Plex.

What To Watch

Lethbridge Point of View

Salute to the 20’s: Mike Winther will play in his 300th WHL game tonight. Devan Fafard in game #252, while Nick Walters will suit up for the final time and will round out with an impressive 307 WHL games.

Spoilers: Despite losing last night, the Hurricanes can still play spoilers. If the Hurricanes beat the Broncos in regulation, and Moose Jaw beats Brandon, Swift Current will miss the playoffs on the final day of the regular season.

Swift Current Point of View

Step One – Complete: The Broncos helped their causes of making the playoffs drastically last night picking up a 5-3 victory at the ENMAX Centre over the ‘Canes. All the Broncos need is a single point, and they will make the post season.

Bow-Tie: Goaltending is the most important position, and the Swift Current Broncos have one of the best ‘tenders in the league. Landon Bow, while giving up two goals last night that he would maybe want back, stood tall keeping his team close when the ‘Canes were pressing in the first. He leads the league in shutouts (7) and if Swift Current gets into the playoffs, could be the reason the steal a round or two.
