The Regina Pats overcame a 4-0 first period deficit to beat the Prince Albert Raiders 7-6 in overtime on Saturday night at the Brandt Centre. Regina scored three times in the second to get within a goal heading to the third. Prince Albert didn’t go away however, restoring their lead to two goals, twice in the final stanza. However the Pats kept coming and with the extra attacker, Adam Brooks scored with 8.5 seconds left to tie the game 6-6 and force overtime. 18 seconds into the OT period, Brooks ripped a shot into the top of the net for his second of the night and it gave the Pats the 7-6 victory. Brooks and Sam Steel led the club with three points apiece while Max Paddock stopped 13 of 15 shots in a relief effort to pick up his second win in as many WHL appearances. The Pats are right back at it Sunday when they visit the Raiders at the Art Hauser Centre at 4 p.m.
