The Regina Pats saw a 3-0 first period lead evaporate in a 5-3 home loss to the Edmonton Oil Kings on Tuesday night.

The Pats scored the game’s first goal four minutes in, Kyle Walker snapped a shot from the left side, and it took a couple bounces before finding the back of the net. Just over a minute later, Robbie Holmes finished off a rebound off the post for his third and it was a 2-0 game. Then in the dying seconds of the period, Austin Pratt snapped home his third from the slot and Regina took a 3-0 lead to the break. In the second, the Oil Kings ate into the Pats lead with goals from Liam Keeler and Jalen Luypen and it was a 3-2 game after 40 minutes. In the third, the Oil Kings score twice in the opening two minutes to take a 4-3 lead. Edmonton added another midway through the frame and took the victory in a 5-3 final.

The Pats were outshot 39-18, the powerplay was oh for four and the penalty kill went four for five. Austin Pratt and Kyle Walker led the Pats with a goal and an assist, Dawson Holt had two helpers and Max Paddock made 34 saves.

The Pats (1-7-0-0) are back in action on Saturday night when they host the Vancouver Giants at 7 p.m. at the Brandt Centre.
