The Lethbridge Hurricanes surrendered another two goal lead on Thursday as they lost 5-3 in Red Deer and now face a must win situation on home ice Saturday.

Less than a week into the WHL playoffs and the Lethbridge Hurricanes are already facing elimination.  The 'Canes surrendered another two goal lead in Red Deer last night en route to a 5-3 loss in game four of their best of seven series and they now trail three games to one.  Lethbridge jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period thanks to goals from Tyler Wong and Jordy Bellerive, but the Rebels stormed back to tie the game in the second.  Wong scored his second of the game late in the second period to put the 'Canes ahead 3-2 after two, but Red Deer replied with three unanswered goals in the third period to secure the win.  The series now shifts back to Lethbridge for game five on Saturday with the Hurricanes facing a must win situation. - Tom Roulston
