Pat Chat February 9th

The Week That Was
It was a six point week for the Queen City Kids as the Pats ran their win streak to four games with victories over Prince Albert, Saskatoon and Spokane.  Tuesday’s matchup against the Raiders wasn’t pretty, in fact the coaching staff wasn’t happy with the team’s performance despite the two points.  Austin Wagner’s third period goal stood up as the winner after a late charge from Prince Albert in a 4-2 win.  Friday night the Pats peppered Blades’ netminder Nic Amundrud, but only scored once until the third period, scoring four straight to win 5-2.  The home stand closed out with the Pats battling their way to a win against Spokane.  Sam Steel scored the winner on a two-on-one in the third as part of the 4-2 victory.
