The Regina Pats earned a point on home ice Saturday in a 2-1 overtime defeat at the hands of the Edmonton Oil Kings at the Brandt Centre.

In the first, Edmonton outshot Regina 13-2, but Danton Belluk stood tall making 12 saves. The lone goal that got by him was on the powerplay from Jake Neighbours and it was 1-0 Oil Kings after one. Belluk was forced to leave the game after the first and so Donovan Buskey came into the game to start the second. The Pats found the tying goal at 17:23 of the period when Austin Pratt jammed in his 18th from the side of the net and it was 1-1 after 40 minutes. In the third, Donovan Buskey stopped all 12 shots he faced, securing a point for Regina in a game that went to overtime tied at one. In the extra frame, the Oil Kings got the winner from Josh Williams at 4:13 and they took the extra point in a 2-1 final.

The Pats were outshot 41-16, the powerplay was oh for two, the penalty kill three for four, while Danton Belluk and Donovan Buskey combined to make 39 saves.

The Pats (19-31-4-2) will wrap up their three-game weekend on Sunday when they host the Brandon Wheat Kings at 4 p.m. at the Brandt Centre.
