Pat Chat January 12th

The Week That Was
A busy week saw the new-look Pats face off against three teams with mixed results.  As the team looked to build chemistry, the Blue and White picked up a key win against the U.S. Division leading Everett Silvertips.  Tyler Brown stepped between the pipes for an injured Daniel Wapple and was named the first star in a 3-1 victory against the Silvertips.  Jesse Gabrielle picked up his first goal as a Pat in the win.  Friday brought the Oil Kings and goaltender Tristan Jarry to town.  The Pittsburgh Penguins netminder made 36 saves as the Pats fell by a 4-1 count.  The week ended with a wild affair as the Pats and Raiders posted seven goals in just the first period of Saturday’s game.  The Raiders held a 6-3 lead going into the third, but saw the Pats roar back with two late markers only to come up short in a 6-5 loss.  Taylor Cooper scored his first as a Pat, then added two more for the hat-trick plus an assist in the loss.

The Week Ahead

Sunday, January 18th – Pats at Calgary (5:00 p.m. CST)
