The Regina Pats battled hard in a 5-2 loss on home ice to the Prince Albert Raiders on Saturday night.

Regina opened the scoring when Carter Massier finished off a three-on-one rush for his first career WHL goal to make it 1-0. Prince Albert got it back with 27 seconds left in the first on the powerplay and it was 1-1 at the break. The Pats outshot Prince Albert 12-10 in the second but gave up the lone two goals and trailed 3-1 after 40 minutes. In the third, Jadon Joseph scored a beauty powerplay goal from the right circle to get the Pats within one with seven minutes left. However, the Raiders got two in the final minutes to win their 19th straight game, 5-2 the final score.

The Pats were outshot 29-26, the powerplay was one for four, the penalty kill two for three and Dean McNabb made 24 saves in the defeat.

The Pats (8-19-0-0) will conclude their three in three weekend on Sunday against the Medicine Hat Tigers on Teddy Bear Toss Night at 4 p.m. at the Brandt Centre.
