Pat Chat November 12th

The Week That Was

Wednesday, November 7th – Seattle 2 @ Pats 5
Matt Hewitt made 43 saves en route to his 50th career win in the Pats 5-2 win against the Thunderbirds.  Hewitt’s great play gave the Pats scorers time to get on the board and go on to seal the win.  Luke Fenske scored the eventual game winner after the Pats killed off an extended 5-on-3 chance for Seattle.  Both Morgan Klimchuk and Lane Scheidl had three points on the night.

Friday, November 9th – Pats 3 @ Saskatoon 6
It was a wild game to say the least.  After the Pats opened the scoring, the Blades jumped out with five unanswered goals, including three on the powerplay to take a 5-1 lead heading to the third.  After a three-fight melee broke out early in the third, the Pats capitalized on two powerplays to get back in the game.  The Blue and White would only get within two as Saskatoon sealed the game with an empty netter.  Morgan Klimchuk scored both Pat powerplay goals.

Saturday, November 10th – Lethbridge 0 @ Pats 4
The Pats went looking for a rebound effort against Lethbridge and found it with a hard-working effort to pick up their third straight road win.  Dyson Stevenson had his first career hat-trick and added an assist to lead the offensive side of things.  Matt Hewitt made 32 saves for his first shutout of the season.  Colten Mayor and Adam Brooks both had two assist nights, chipping in on two of Stevenson’s goals.

Quote of the Week

“It’s a good cause and we as players and an organization here support it.  We’re getting off to a slow start here (growing moustaches), a lot of us, but we’re looking forward to working with the firefighters.” – Colton Jobke on the Pats and Regina Professional Firefighters Association’s “Smoke, Sticks and ‘Staches” Movember initiative

“Thank goodness we’ve had him in there the last couple nights. Never critique a win but the goaltender came up big when he had to tonight. We can’t continue giving up the scoring chances and the shots like we did and count on Hewie, but we needed the points and we got them. We have to go on from there” – Head Coach Pat Conacher on Matt Hewitt’s play in goal against Seattle (5-2 win).
