The Week That Was
The Pats hit the road for a four game in five night stretch last week as they traveled through Alberta. The swing started with a bang as the Pats trounced the Central Division leading Medicine Hat Tigers by a 6-1 score. Pavel Padakin had a pair of goals in the win and Daniel Wapple made 37 saves. Friday’s game opened up a three-in-three stretch and it didn’t go as swimmingly as Saturday. The Edmonton Oil Kings scored three in the first and three in the second en route to a 6-2 win over the Pats. Austin Wagner and Adam Brooks both scored for the Blue and White. Saturday saw the Pats and Rebels battle it out in a wild affair. The Queen City Kids came back from a 3-1 deficit to tie the game 3-3 in the third. A nine round shootout was required before Adam Musil won 4-3 it for Red Deer. The road swing closed out with the Pats in Calgary. The visitors opened the scoring, but surrendered the next four in a 5-2 loss to the Hitmen. Regina-born NHL’er Ryan Getzlaf was honoured by Calgary prior to puck drop.
