It was an entertaining hockey game as the Canes played the defending WHL and Memorial Cup Champs tight. The difference in this game was Skinner between the pipes. The 15 year old goaltender was bombarded with shots and stole the victory for the visitors. Edmonton out shot Lethbridge 47-28.
The game was scoreless through 40 minutes of play when Tyler Wong finally broke the goose eggs with his 2nd goal of the season to give Lethbridge a 1-0 lead at the 1:50 mark of the 3rd period. Edmonton though got that one back at 10:53 when Andrew Koep evened the score at 1-1. That eventually sent the game to overtime. The extra period solved nothing, but in the shootout Jamal Watson scored the lone goal and that turned out to be the difference as the Canes stole a 2-1 win. The victory improves their overall record to 2-8-0-1 in 11 games this season. The Hurricanes went 0/3 on the power play and the Oil Kings 0/2.
The Hurricanes now head to Saskatchewan for three games in three days this weekend. Their next action is Friday night (Oct. 24) in Saskatoon.
