Pat Chat March 16th

The Week That Was
It was a packed week for the Blue and White as they faced off against three potential first round opponents.  The Pats opened in Prince Albert Tuesday and peppered the Raiders’ net with 58 shots, but were stifled by goaltender Nick McBride who turned away all but 55 of their attempts.  The Raiders used McBride’s heroics to build a 4-0 lead and held off a Regina comeback to win 5-3.  The Pats were without Sam Steel, Austin Wagner and Braden Christoffer in Swift Current the next night, but backup goaltender Tyler Brown stole the show early.  His strong play between the pipes and a full team effort lifted the Queen City Kids to a 4-1 win over the Broncos.  The weekend saw the Trans-Canada Clash reached its climax when the Pats and Warriors split a home and home by winning in each other’s rinks.  Regina erased a 3-0 deficit in the first period and overcame a controversial disallowed goal to win 4-3 in Moose Jaw on Friday.  The following evening saw the Warriors swipe away a 2-0 disadvantage before dropping the Pats 4-3 in the shootout to keep their playoff hopes alive.
