Lethbridge Hurricanes prepare for playoffs

February 22, 2019

The Lethbridge Hurricanes are preparing to take the Medicine Hat Tigers for a home-and-home.

With the WHL playoffs approaching, former second string goaltender, Carl Tetachuk is entering this stretch with confidence.

All four divisions in the Western Hockey League are closely matched. The central division is no different. The Lethbridge Hurricanes and Medicine Hat Tigers have just three points separating them. The two teams are preparing for a home-and-home, highway 3 battle.

The home-and-home will kick off tonight at 7 p.m. at the Enmax Centre before Game 2 heads down the highway to Medicine Hat Saturday at 7:30 p.m.

Heading into the two-game tilt, the 30-17-4-5-5 Canes sit in second  place in the Central Division, three points up on the Tigers  

"We want to get better...we've still got some games here and it's real important for us to finish strong, like I said. For us, playoffs starts now. We have to have a playoff mentality and play the right way," says head coach Brent Kisio.

The Canes are 5-3-1-1 in their last 10 games and are coming off a 5-2 win over the Kootenay Ice in Cranbrook.

The Tigers are 4-5-1-0 in their last 10 and were shut out 5-0 on Monday by the Edmonton Oil Kings.

The Canes lead the season series 3-1-1-1 over the Tigers.
