RECAP: Pats down Raiders in OT for third straight win to ring in 2018
Matt Bradley scored the overtime winner as part of a three point night and the Pats won a third straight game, 5-4 over the Prince Albert Raiders on Monday night at the Brandt Centre. The Pats got the lone goal of the first period when Dawson Davidson scored shorthanded for his seventh of the season and it was 1-0 after one. The second period was all Prince Albert, scoring three times to make it 3-1 heading to the third. In the final frame, Josh Mahura (12), Nick Henry (6) and Jake Leschyshyn (12) scored in a span of 2:38 to take a 4-3 lead. The Raiders responded with a powerplay goal with just under seven minutes left which eventually forced overtime in a 4-4 game. The Pats then got the game winning goal off the stick of Matt Bradley, his team leading 24th, and Regina took the extra point, 5-4 the final score. Bradley and Josh Mahura each had a goal and two assists, Robbie Holmes put up two points and Tyler Brown made 27 saves in the win. The Pats outshot the Raiders 39-31, the powerplay went oh for three and the penalty kill two for four with a shorthanded goal. The Pats (19-18-3-0) are back in action Wednesday against the Brandon Wheat Kings at 7 p.m. at the Brandt Centre.
