The Saskatoon Blades haven’t forgotten their last game against the Lethbridge Hurricanes.
“A little over a month ago, they beat us, 4-1 I think,” said Cameron Hebig at morning skate. “We remember, and we want to get them back for that.”
“I thought the score was a little misleading last time,” said Assistant Coach Dean Brockman. “We played well, but they buried their chances, and we didn’t.”
The Blades recently kicked off a three game road trip with a huge 4-2 win in Calgary. It was the ending of two streaks – the Blades four game skid, and Calgary’s 10 game win streak.
“We felt great on the bus after that one,” said Brockman. “The boys played great, with a lot of energy. Nikky Highlight was phenomenal in net.”
Nikky Highlight is of course goaltender Nik Amundrud, who turned aside 35 shots in the win.
“Ammer, he helped us big time. When he’s on, he’s one of the best in the league.”
Now, the Blades look to pick up their second win in a row in a very busy, very important stretch of the schedule.
“Like we’ve said before, winning is awesome,” added Hebig. “We got used to the feeling on our five game win streak not long ago, and we want to do that again.”
The Blades will follow up the game in Lethbridge with a bus ride to Cranbrook, where they’ll take on the Kootenay ICE on Sunday.
