RECAP: Pats win third straight game, 4-3 in Prince Albert Wednesday
The Regina Pats picked up a third straight win on Wednesday night, 4-3 in Prince Albert over the Raiders. The Raiders led 1-0 after a powerplay goal five minutes into the first, but Jake Leschyshyn would tie it up with his 15th of the year and it was 1-1 after one. In the second, the Raiders made it 2-1 off the stick of Curtis Miske, but 25 seconds later Matt Bradley tipped home his 28th and it was 2-2 after 40 minutes. In the third, the Pats killed off over a minute of 5 on 3 powerplay time for Prince Albert to keep the game tied and then went to a powerplay of their own. Matt Bradley would score his second of the night, 29th of the season, and Regina had their first lead at 3-2. On another powerplay, Jesse Gabrielle added to the lead with his third of the year and it was a 4-2 game. Prince Albert got one back with less than five minutes left but Regina held on from there for the 4-3 win. Bradley had the two goals and Cameron Hebig chipped in with two assists to lead the Pats offence. Ryan Kubic did the rest making 34 saves. The Pats were outshot 37-33, the powerplay was two for four and the penalty kill four for five.
