Ben McDermott believes momentum is the key ingredient as the Hurricanes look to cook up a fourth-straight BBL finals appearance.
Monday's six-wicket win over second-placed Sydney Thunder catapulted Adam Griffith's side from seventh to fourth in what is shaping up to be the competition's closest-ever finals race.
With three games to go, the Hurricanes face the in-form Perth Scorchers and Sydney Sixers - who have both won four of their past five games - before a last round clash with likely wooden spooners Melbourne Renegades.
The Canes had lost three straight before Monday's come-from-behind win, which McDermott hopes is a sign of things to come.

"It's all about momentum - if we can take this into those quick turnarounds and keep going with it hopefully we can get on a bit of a run," McDermott said.
"We saw Perth start really poorly but they're that good, you always thought they were going to come back and win heaps of games which they did.
"We're coming up against some pretty good teams in the Scorchers and Sixers next couple of games so we need to be on and play like we did [on Monday]."
McDermott has been the Hurricanes' best performer this season, making his third score of 89-plus on Monday with a 56-ball 96.
With D'Arcy Short still searching for his best form and experienced pair Dawid Malan and Peter Handscomb making just one 50 between them in BBL10, McDermott's form appears crucial to Hobart's finals hopes.

"I think it's the most consistent I've been - normally it's all a bit up and down but hopefully I can keep going and I guess bring that momentum through to finals and keep hitting the ball well," McDermott said.
"I think it's probably the best I've played that I can remember, but that's probably natural - I'm 26 now so getting towards the peak of my career probably.
"It's nice to hit your straps when you're my age - hopefully I can keep going."
