It was a disappointing start to the 2018 WHL playoffs for the Red Deer Rebels in Lethbridge Friday night.

The hometown Hurricanes handed it to Red Deer 6-0 to take a 1-0 best of seven series lead over the visiting Rebels.

The Red Deer Rebels were behind from the get-go Friday night, resulting in a not so pretty 6-2 loss at the hands of the Kootenay Ice.

In the first period, Kootenay took advantage of a slow start by Red Deer, Alec Baer wristing one over the glove of Riley Lamb just 5:29 into the game.
