The Regina Pats finished their U.S. Division road trip with a 7-3 loss in Spokane to the Chiefs on Saturday night. Spokane scored the game’s first five goals, four of them on the powerplay and one shorthanded. Regina got one back off the stick of Nick Henry, his second, and it was 5-1 Chiefs after two periods. The Pats made it a game early in the third when Sam Steel scored his 10th and Matt Bradley his 17th to get the Pats to within two. Regina had three straight powerplays after that but were unable to score and the Chiefs would add two late to make it 7-3 and that was the final. Regina was outshot 32-23 in the loss, the powerplay was oh for five and the penalty kill one for five. Nick Henry and Matt Bradley led the way with three point nights while Tyler Brown and Max Paddock combined to make 25 saves.
