CRANBROOK, B.C. - Russel Maxwell scored twice and set up two more as the Lethbridge Hurricanes defeated the host Kootenay Ice 4-2 on Saturday in Western Hockey League action.

Daniel Johnston had a goal and an assist for the Hurricanes (2-2-0) while Jaimen Yakubowski added a single goal.

Jagger Dirk and Brock Montgomery scored for the Ice (1-3-0).

Ty Rimmer made 16 saves for the victory as Wyatt Hoflin stopped 25 shots in a losing effort.

Lethbridge found success with its power play as they went 3-for-7 while Kootenay went 1-for-2.

The two clubs combined for 90 minutes in penalties in the third period. Maxwell and Kootenay's Erik Benoit both earned game misconducts for being part of a second fight on the same stoppage of play.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
