The Victoria Royals lost against the Lethbridge Hurricanes by the score of 4-1 Saturday, to cap off their four-game prairie road trip, going 0-2-2-0.
They will be off until Friday, Dec. 8 when they host the Kootenay Ice at Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre, then they will be back out on the road for three more games – that’s seven games of eight on the road.
With a few injuries in the line-up, they are having trouble winning. They were outshot in Lethbridge 43-31, which means they have been outshot 25 of 31 games so far this season.
Jake Elmer and Ty Prefontaine scored two each Saturday. Elmer scored the opening goal at 6:23 of the first, it was a short-handed marker and his sixth goal of the season.
He scored the game-winner at 1:29 of the second. Prefontaine assisting, which means Prefontaine would factor in three of the four goals on the night. He scored the first of the season at 14:21 of the second.
Dante Hannoun finally got the Royals on the board at 2:49 of the third period with his 13th of the season. Tarun Fizer and Tyus Gent assisting. It was Gent’s first ever Western Hockey League point.
Prefontaine scored into the empty net at 17:56.
Griffen Outhouse stopped 40-43 shots that came his way and earned third star honours. Stuart Skinner stopped 30/31.
The teams went oh-for on the man advantage. Victoria had four opportunities, while Lethbridge had five.
