The Hurricanes put an end to a four game home-ice losing skid on Saturday, beating the Prince Albert Raiders 4-1.
The Canes were looking to rebound after losses to Saskatoon and Moose Jaw earlier in the week. With 14 games to go in the regular season, the Hurricanes sit in 11th spot in the Eastern Conference with a record of 22-35-0-1. This is a much lighter week coming up for the Hurricanes with only two games, both at home on what is the Alberta Family Day long weekend. The Brandon Wheat Kings come to town Wednesday (Feb. 15) and the Regina Pats will pay a visit Friday (Feb. 17). On Friday, the Hurricanes will recognize the families and billet families of the players with a special honour during the game against the Pats. It's become somewhat of a tradition for the Hurricanes during the Family Day long weekend.
Friday night's game with also be Cancer Awareness night at the ENMAX Centre. The Hurricanes will be teaming up with the Canadian Cancer Society - Relay for Life. All the proceeds from the event will be going to cancer research.
