The Canes scored first in this game when Bryton Sayers fired a point shot on a power play at 13:03, scoring his at of the season to make it 1-0 Lethbridge. It was actually a very good opening period for the Hurricanes as they out shot PA 15-9.

In the second, the Raiders evened things up when Jayden Hart scored early in the period to tie the game at 1-1. The Canes got that one back less than a minute later when Zane Jones scored his 11th goal of the season to restore the one goal lead for Lethbridge. Late in the period, Prince Albert got back on to even terms again when Gage Quinny scored his first of two on the afternoon to tie the game at 2-2 after 40 minutes of play.

In the third, the Hurricanes scored to take the lead for a third time when Jamal Watson put home his 10th of the season to give Lethbridge a 3-2, but the Raiders wouldn't die. The scored three times to win it. Gage Quinny tied the game with his 2nd of the afternoon at 6:24 to even the score at 3-3. Then PA took its first lead late in the period when Josh Morrissey's point shot found its way through. That gave the Raiders a 4-3 lead. In the final minute, the Raiders would ice the game when Reid Gardnier scored and that was it. PA wins it 5-3.

The loss drops the Canes overall record to 5-15-3-1 in 24 games this season. Shots were even at 35-35. Lethbridge went 1/5 on the power play and PA 0/3.
