GAME DAY: Hurricanes Look to Bounce Back Against Pats

Lethbridge, AB – The Lethbridge Hurricanes wrap up a three game home stand tonight at 7:00pm at the ENMAX Centre when they welcome the Regina Pats in the first of two straight meetings against the East Division leaders.

The Hurricanes (5-2-1-1) are coming off a 4-3 overtime loss last night at home to the Vancouver Giants. Brayden Burke had yet another three point game with a goal and two assists – it was the third straight outing that he recorded three points. Ryan Gilchrist made 27 saves in the loss to the Giants in his second career start.

The Pats (5-0-3-0) are coming off an overtime victory on Friday as they defeated the Kootenay Ice 5-4 in extra time in Cranbrook. Connor Hobbs scored the overtime winner while rookie forward Nick Henry scored a hat-trick in regulation for Regina.

Tonight is the first of two straight against the Pats and four meetings this season between the two teams that met in the first round of the playoffs last year. Tickets for tonight’s match up are available online, by calling 403-329-SEAT (7328) or by visiting the ENMAX Centre or Yates Ticket Centres.

VS. PATS: Tonight will be the first of four meetings this season between the Hurricanes and the Pats. It will also be the first of two straight against one another.
