The Swift Current Broncos wrapped up a five-game homestand on Wednesday night with a 4-1 win over the Lethbridge Hurricanes.

The game was tied through two periods as Connor Hvidston scored in the first for the Broncos and Brayden Edwards scored for the Hurricanes in the second, both on the powerplay.

However, in the third, it was all Broncos as they outshot the Hurricanes 13-8 and the powerplay struck again as Clarke Caswell notched his 17th of the year. Mat Ward scored on a breakaway later in the third to add insult to injury and make it 3-1 before Owen Pickering broke a 28-game goalless streak with an empty net goal.

Broncos Assistant Coach Regan Darby said while he thought they played well in the first 40 minutes, but they came out with some energy in the third.

“We kind of locked things up and had a little bit more jam,” Darby said. “I thought we played a little harder there in the third period too.”

The Bronco powerplay also came to life on Wednesday, going 2-for-6 on the evening, the first time the Broncos scored multiple powerplay goals since January 9. Darby said it was good to see the work pay off.

“I thought we moved the puck around well, we had some good looks,” he said. “We’ve worked on it quite a bit, changed the unit up a little bit, had a different look and just seemed to be clicking.”

Reid Dyck stopped 21 shots in the win, and Ward led the way offensively with his goal and two assists. The Bronco penalty kill was 4-for-5.

The Broncos are back in action on Friday to open up a home and home set with the Regina Pats.
