RECAP: Lockner and Morrisseau lead Pats to victory in Calgary
Koby Morrisseau and Bryan Lockner each had three point nights to lead the Regina Pats to a 4-1 win in Calgary over the Hitmen on Sunday night. Regina got the game’s first goal, 3:11 in when Josh Mahura scored on a slap shot from the blue line for his eighth of the year. The Calgary powerplay would tie it later in the period and it was 1-1 after one. In the second, Bryan Lockner put home his fourth on a pretty passing play with Koby Morrisseau to give the Pats the 2-1 lead. Then, just as a powerplay expired Jake Leschyshyn scored his seventh off a rebound and the Pats took a 3-1 lead to the third. In the final frame, Koby Morrisseau rounded out the scoring with his second of the season and 4-1 was the final from Calgary. Regina outshot the Hitmen 30-18, the powerplay was oh for five, the penalty kill three for four and Max Paddock made 18 saves for his fifth win of the year. The Pats (15-12-2-0) wrap up their stretch of eight straight on the road on Wednesday in Brandon against the Wheat Kings. Puck drops at 7 on 620 CKRM.
