The Hurricanes defeated Medicine Hat and Regina and lost in Moose Jaw and Brandon. With 16 victories to this point, the Canes' are now four wins back of equaling their entire win total of last season. Things don't get much easier this week for Lethbridge. For the second week in a row, the Hurricanes will play four games in five nights starting Tuesday when they host the Brandon Wheat Kings. The Canes' will be looking for a bit of payback in this game after the Wheaties stormed back to beat the Hurricanes 6-4 in Brandon this past Friday. The Canes' will also wear their special jersey's on Tuesday night honouring the 1951 Lethbridge Maple Leafs. On Wednesday. Lethbridge will head north to Red Deer and then on the weekend it's back-to-back against the Kootenay ICE. That will conclude a very busy month of January for Lethbridge with 14 games on the schedule, the majority of those on the road. February will be kind of the reverse, with most of the Hurricanes 12 games next month taking place at home.
HURRICANES THIS WEEK
Our weekly Hurricanes radio program is back on the air Monday night on CJOC. Fred and I will be joined by Head Coach and G.M. Rich Preston in the first 20 minutes. A blast from the past in the second segment of the show. We will be playing back an interview CJOC reporter Bryan Jeannotte did 30 years ago regarding the 1951 Lethbridge Maple Leafs. Back in 1981, Bryan spoke with Bert Knibbs who was a member of the team which won the World Amateur Hockey Championship in Paris, France. Last week, he found that interview in his personal archives he did with Knibbs to honour the 30th anniversary of that team and we will play it for you on the talk show. Kind of fitting given the fact the Canes' will be recognizing the 60th anniversary of that great team on Tuesday. In the final segment, we'll be joined by Bruce Luebke, the radio voice of the Brandon Wheat Kings. The show starts at 6:00 pm (MST) on CJOC.
