Nine different players chipped in as the Lethbridge Hurricanes hammered the visiting Kootenay ICE Thursday night at the ENMAX Centre.
This was the Canes most lopsided victory in several seasons. Brayden Burke lead the way with a goal and three helpers.
The game winning goal in this game actually came 11:10 into the first period when Barrett Sheen scored his first-ever WHL goal to make it 1-0 Lethbridge. That was the only goal of the period.
In the second though, the Hurricanes blew things wide open with four goals. Bryaden Burke scored his 6th of the season to make make it 2-0. That was followed by Giorgio Estephan's 9th of the season and Justin Gutierrez scoring his 6th to make it 4-0. The Hurricanes scored a power play goal late in the period when Tyler Wong notched his 17th to make it 5-0 Lethbridge after 40 minutes.
In the third, more offence from the Hurricanes. Cory Millette with a shorthanded marker, his 11th to make it 6-0. Arvin Atwal then scored his 5th of the year. That made it 7-0. The Canes ended scoring two more time on the power play to close things out. Goals by Carter Folk and Brett Davis, both scoring their 3rd of the season and this one would end heavily favouring the Hurricanes, 9-0.
The win improves the Canes record to 15-9 on the season. They also have the second-best home record in the Westerrn Hockey league this season at 10-2. Stuart Skinner earned the win and shut out. This was all Lethbridge from the get-go. They out shot the Kootenay ICE 48-18.
The Hurricanes went 3/5 on the power play in this game. Kootenay was 0/4.
The Hurricanes next action is Friday (Nov. 27) when they host the Brandon Wheat Kings. Both teams are tied with 30 points in the Eastern Conference, so this is a pretty important game. Puck Drop is 7:00 pm MST from the ENMAX Centre.
