LETHBRIDGE, Alta. - The Prince Albert Raiders overcame an early goal against by scoring four unanswered to beat the Lethbridge Hurricanes 4-1 in Western Hockey League play Tuesday.

Mike Winther, Sawyer Lange, Riley Guenther and Mark McNeill each scored for the league-leading Raiders (7-0-1).

Russell Maxwell gave the Hurricanes (2-5-0) the lead just 21 seconds into the game, but his shot was the only one that would beat Prince Albert goaltender Luke Siemens.

Siemens finished with 19 saves, while the Raiders scored twice in the second and twice in the third for the win.

Ty Rimmer meanwhile stopped 31 shots in net for Lethbridge.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
