The Moose Jaw Warriors will be looking to find their road magic again when they open up a three-game road trip against the Hurricanes in Lethbridge on Friday.

After having their eight-game point streak snapped on Saturday, the Warriors have now lost back-to-back games coming out of Wednesday's 6-1 loss in Saskatoon.

"We didn't work as a team [in Saskatoon], that was the main thing," said Warriors rookie forward Brayden Tracey. "It's obviously tough losing to a team like that, as we might see them down the road a bit more, but we've got to move forward, learn how to work as a team, and play harder than that obviously."

The Warriors will also travel to Red Deer on Saturday night and then finish up the weekend trek in Calgary on Sunday afternoon.

Moose Jaw has been one of the best teams in the league on the road this season with 18 wins away from Mosaic Place. They will look to lean on that success as they try to right the ship quickly after Wednesday's loss.

"These are three big games here -- we have Lethbridge, Calgary and Red Deer -- we need all the points that we can get, it starts here and then we've got to keep going after that," said Tracey, who leads the WHL in rookie scoring with 53 points in 49 games.

Friday night's road trip opener in Lethbridge will feature two teams in the thick of a playoff race. 

The Hurricanes sit second in the Central Division, three points behind Edmonton for first place and just one point clear of Medicine Hat in third. Red Deer and Calgary also sit just three points behind the Tigers.

The Warriors have a 2-0 record against the Hurricanes this season. 

Tracey said that they know they need to control the pace against Lethbridge, "They like to control the pace, but if we just work harder and control the game with the puck, we need to maintain the puck more, we'll have success against them," he said.

"It's a big game, both teams are going to be working hard and if we just outcompete them, we'll be good against them."

The Warriors will be without one of their leaders for the start of the road trip, 18-year-old defenceman Jett Woo has been suspended two games by the Western Hockey League for his hit on Blades forward Kirby Dach on Wednesday. Woo will be eligible to return in Calgary on Sunday afternoon.

Warriors' leading scorer Tristin Langan will be back in the lineup after serving a one-game suspension on Wednesday.

Moose Jaw hits the ice in Lethbridge on Friday night at 8 p.m. The Pre-Game Show is on the air at 7:40 p.m. with the Voice of the Warriors, James Gallo.
