The Canes' lost 4-2 with an empty-netter in Swift Current Friday and then fell 4-3 back in Lethbridge on Saturday. The Hurricanes have just one victory in the their passed seven games as they get set open to up the December portion of their schedule against this very same Swift Current team later on this week. The Hurricanes head into action this week with a .500 record after 26 games: 11-11-1-3.
The Hurricanes have a lighter week with only two games of the course of of four nights. After traveling back to Swift Current on Wednesday for the third game in less than a week versus the Broncos, the Canes' will return home to the ENMAX Centre to host Prince Albert this Saturday night, December 4th. That will be the Hurricanes 15th Annual Teddy Bear Toss game. Lethbridge will play six straight games at home following Wednesday's game in Swift Current. Before the Chritsmas break, the Hurricanes will face Medicine Hat three times (twice at home and once on the road), Swift Current on the road and Prinec Albert, Moose Jaw, Chilliwack and Kelowna all on home-ice.
The Hurricanes are hoping to get back Brody Sutter and Graham Hood soon from injury. Sutter has taken the pre-game skate for the passed few games and may see game action this week if he gets the all-clear. Hood has been out a couple of weeks with a shoulder injury. Reid Jackson and Michael Sofillas both missed the passed two games and are listed day-to-day with head injuries.
