VANCOUVER, BC - After a 10 hour bus ride from Prince George on Sunday, the Lethbridge Hurricanes have settled in to Vancouver for a couple of days.
The Canes will take on the Giants here Tuesday night at 8:00 MST in the second and final meeting of the season between the two teams. Lethbridge dropped both it's game on the weekend in PG, losing 6-3 on Friday and then falling 4-2 Saturday night in the rematch. The Hurricanes pounded a total of 93 on the Cougars goal in those two games, but had nothing to show for it in the win column.
The Hurricanes are nearing the 3/4 point in this WHL season. Through 46 games, they sit with a record of 16-29-0-1. They are 12-12 at home, but the road is where things have been the difference. Away from Lethbridge, the Canes are just 4-17-0-1. One of those 4 road victories came right here in Vancouver a month ago. The Hurricanes have lost 3 straight going into Tuesday's match up with the Giants. They'll be looking for their first win on this 5 game B.C. road trip before heading to Kamloops Wednesday and Kelowna Friday. The Hurricanes will practice here today at Pacific Coliseum before having the rest of the day to relax and prepare for tomorrow's game.
