The Regina Pats wrapped up their three-game homestand with a 6-2 loss to the Medicine Hat Tigers on Friday night at the Brandt Centre.
The Pats got off to a fast start with a goal just over a minute in. Carter Massier picked up his first of the year from the left circle to make it 1-0. The Tigers responded with two quick powerplay goals, the first from Cole Sillinger and the second from Ryan Chyzowski, and it was 2-1. The Pats drew even a short time later when Ty Kolle finished off a pretty passing play with Carter Massier and Garrett Wright for his third of the season and it was 2-2 after an entertaining opening period. In the second, the Tigers scored three times at even strength and took a three-goal lead into the third. In the final frame, Cole Sillinger scored his second of the night for Medicine Hat to round out the scoring in what was a 6-2 final.
The Pats were outshot 46-24, the powerplay went oh for four and the penalty kill was three for five. Carter Massier, Ty Kolle and Garrett Wright led the offence with two points each, while Max Paddock made 40 saves.
