Broncos host Lethbridge for second straight game

The Swift Current Broncos will look to get out of a four-game slide when they welcome the Lethbridge Hurricanes for the second game in a row tonight. 

The Broncos’ last four losses have been in one-goal games, and in three of those games, the winning goal was scored in the last ten minutes of the third period. Lethbridge won the last meeting between the two teams 3-2 on Saturday. 

Face-off is at 7:00pm from InnovationPlex and you can hear it live on the Eagle 94.1 FM with Living Sky Casino Broncos Hockey starting at 6:30pm. 

There are two other games in the WHL tonight... Regina hosts Moose Jaw in a game that was postponed from Sunday and the Victoria Royals travel to Red Deer to take on the Rebels.
