CALGARY HITMEN AT LETHBRIDGE HURRICANES, ENMAX CENTRE, 7 P.M., FAN 960

COMING IN:

The 33-23-9-5 Hitmen have struggled recently, going 3-5-2 in their last 10. The Hurricanes (38-19-12-1) are losers of two in a row, including their last game, a 5-3 loss to Red Deer Tuesday.

HEAD-TO-HEAD:

It's the sixth and final matchup between the two Central Division rivals. Calgary has the edge in the season series 2-1-1-1.

WHO'S HOT:

Hitmen -- C Shaun Landolt had a goal and an assist in Calgary's 4-2 loss against Kootenay Sunday.

Hurricanes -- RW Jonathan Filewich continues to play well, with three goals and four assists in his last four games.

WHO'S NOT:

Hitmen -- LW Andrew Ladd is pointless in six games with a minus-4 tagged on.

Hurricanes -- D Michale Gulasi is minus-3 and pointless through Lethbridge's two-game skid.

SPECIAL TEAMS:

Powerplay: Calgary -- 18.4% (70-380, 8th), Lethbridge -- 17.6% (66-376, 10th).

Penalty Kill: Calgary -- 84% (10th), Lethbridge -- 83.8% (11th).

INJURY REPORT:

Hitmen -- RW Keegan Dansereau (mono, day to day), RW Brett O'Malley (foot, day to day), D Darryl Yacboski (shoulder, week to week), F Roman Tomanek (shoulder, day to day), D Dylan Yeo (knee, day to day).

Hurricanes -- D Brennan Chapman (concussion, day to day), D Shawn Mezei (leg contusion, day to day), F Mark Olafson (shoulder, day to day).

NOTABLES:

Heading into tonight's game, Calgary is tied with Red Deer for third in the Central Division, while the Hurricanes trail Medicine Hat by three points for the division crown.

If the 35-25-6-4 Rebels and Hitmen are tied after playing each other in the final game of the season tomorrow, the club with the most wins takes third place.
