Pat Chat February 23rd

The Week That Was
A key set of games saw the Pats build up a three game win streak and build up a ten point lead for 2nd in the East Division.  The second period was where the Pats found their scoring touch Friday against Saskatoon.  The Queen City Kids scored three times in the opening five minutes of the frame en route to a 4-1 win versus the Blades.  The middle period would again be the Pats’ best as they scored three times on the powerplay, sending them to a 4-1 over Red Deer.  Monday bought the Pats to Saskatoon to wrap up their season series with the Blades.  The Pats battled back from a 3-1 third period deficit to win 5-4 in a shootout for their 14th straight against Saskatoon.
