GAME DAY: Hurricanes Look to Bounce Back Against Hitmen

Lethbridge, AB – The Lethbridge Hurricanes will play the third of a four game homestand tonight at 7:00pm as they welcome the Calgary Hitmen to the ENMAX Centre.

The Hurricanes (17-18-3-0) are coming off a 5-2 loss last night to the Vancouver Giants. Jordy Bellerive and Giorgio Estephan scored the goals in the losing cause while Stuart Skinner made 21 saves in the loss. The ‘Canes fell to 11-7-2-0 on home ice with the defeat.

The Hitmen (12-21-5-1) were handed a 5-3 loss by the Moose Jaw Warriors last night at Scotiabank Saddledome. Riley Stotts scored twice while Layne Toder added the other in the loss. Calgary chased Warriors starting goalie Brody Willms scoring three times on five shots but failed to solve Adam Evanoff who replaced Willms.

Tonight will be the final of six meetings on the season between the ‘Canes and Hitmen; Lethbridge won the first two meetings while Calgary has won the last three meetings.
