LETHBRIDGE - Home cooking continued last night for the Lethbridge Hurricanes, as they got their second win of the season on home ice, beating the Edmonton Oil Kings 4-1.

The Oil Kings opened the scoring in the first period on the power play when Colton Kehler buried a one-timer past Stuart Skinner after Lethbridge failed to get a puck out of the zone.

The Hurricanes finally got on the board in the second period when Jordy Bellerive threaded a pass across to Jack Flaman, playing in just his second game of the season, and who put it home for his second in as many nights to tie the game 1-1.

Flaman stayed flaming hot when he scored again with just 37 seconds left in the second period on a power play to put the Hurricanes up 2-1 after two periods.

Early in the third period, Flaman completed his first career WHL hat-trick and padded the Hurricanes lead when he made it 3-1.

Brennan Riddle cemented the game with 43 seconds remaining in the third period when he popped one into the empty net to make it 4-1.

Goaltender Stuart Skinner made 19 saves in his second victory of the year.

The Hurricanes are now 2-2-0-0 on the season, and will be off until Friday when the Prince Albert Raiders pay a visit to town.
