The Regina Pats saw their three-game win streak come to an end on Tuesday night in a 5-2 loss to the Kootenay ICE.
The ICE opened the scoring 2:46 in when Martin Bodak wristed home his fifth of the year from the right circle. The Pats tied it up at the seven-minute mark, Sebastian Streu tipped in a Kyle Walker point shot for his first goal in his first game and it was 1-1 after one. Goaltender Max Paddock was forced to leave the game in the first after taking a hit in the crease and Dean McNabb replaced him at the eight-minute mark. In the second, the ICE scored twice, 18 seconds apart to lead 3-1 early in the period. Austin Pratt got one back to the Pats 33 seconds later, his 10th of the campaign and Regina trailed 3-2 after 40 minutes. In the third, the ICE got two more, one even strength and one on the four on three powerplay to lead 5-2 and that was the final score.
The Pats outshot Kootenay 40-33 in the loss, the powerplay was oh for four and the penalty kill six for seven.
