Canes Lose Three on Road Trip

It was a rough weekend for the Lethbridge Hurricanes, dropping all three of their games on a quick eastern road swing.

Things didn't get off to a good start in game one on Friday with a 4-2 loss to the Warriors in Moose Jaw. That ended a small winning streak for Lethbridge. The Canes out shot the Warriors 34-32 in that game with goals from Tyler Wong and Cory Millette in a losing cause. Stuart Skinner took the loss in goal.

Then Saturday, the Canes looked to rebound against the top team in the Eastern Conference in Brandon. Former Canes forward Reid Duke scored the game winner in the third period as the Wheaties beat the Canes 4-1. Egor Babenko scored the lone goal for the Hurricanes in that game. It was a long night for Jayden Sittler in goal as the Wheat Kings out shot the Canes 45-29.

Lethbridge was looking to rebound Sunday afternoon and finish the road swing on a positive note, however the Pats had very different plans. The Hurricanes let a 3-2 lead slip away as the Pats scored four times in the third period to come back and beat the Canes 5-3. Stuart Skinner took the loss in goal in this game. The Pats out shot Letbridge 39-36. Tyler Wong, Giorgio Estephan, and Arvin Atwal scored for Lethbridge.

A little more adversity for the Hurricanes, but the last time the Canes dropped three straight a few weeks ago, they buckled down and rebounded with a pair of wins. Hopefully a little taste of home sweet home again will be the key to getting this club back in the win column.

The losses drop the Hurricanes overall record to 12-8 on the season. The hockey club now returns home for a while after a fair bit of hockey on the road lately. The Canes will host the visiting Everett Silvertips Wednesday (Nov. 18). On Friday (Nov. 20) the Prince George Cougars pay a visit to the ENMAX Centre, and then Saturday (Nov. 21) the Saskatoon Blades comes to town. All games are 7:00 pm MST start times.
