RECAP: Pats down Raiders in shootout to extend win streak to six games

Prince Albert led 1-0 after 20 minutes, but Sam Steel tied it up in the second with his 32nd of the year. That point pushed him past Adam Brooks into solo 10th on the Pats franchise scoring list with 336 points. The Raiders got that goal back however later on in the second and led 2-1 heading to the third. In the final frame, Sam Steel set up Cameron Hebig for his 41st of the season, it came shorthanded and the game needed overtime in a 2-2 tie.
