The Hurricanes play their first game of a 3 game road trip tonight in Swift Current.
This will be the final meeting of the season between the two teams, with the Broncos holding a 2-1 edge in the season series. Lethbridge has called up defenceman Ryan Pilon to play tonight in Swift Current. This will be Pilon's second game with the Hurricanes this year. The 6 foot 2, 195 pound Pilon was selected 3rd overall by the Hurricanes in the 2011 WHL Bantam draft.
The Canes are coming off back-to-back home ice losses where they gave up a total of 14 goals in those two games. The team will look to tighten up a lot defensively with these games in Swift Current, Brandon, and Regina in the next few days.
Lethbridge is closing in on Swift Current in the Eastern Conference standings, trailing the Broncos by 4 points, although both teams are well out of that final playoff position. The Hurricanes have been playing better on the road lately and have won two of their last three games away from the ENMAX Centre.
Game time tonight from Swift Current is 6:00 (MST). The pre-game show on CJOC at 5:30.
