Regina added to their lead 10 minutes later when Ty Kolle chipped in his first from the right goal line, Holt and Tyson Feist drew assists and the Pats took a 2-0 lead into the break. The Warriors cut the lead in half on the powerplay in the second, Keenan Taphorn jammed in his first and it was a one goal game going to the third. In the final frame, the Warriors tied it up with a powerplay goal from Carson Denomie at the 6:36 mark to make it 2-2. Four minutes later however, Ty Kolle stole a puck in the offensive zone and roofed it for his second of the night to give the Pats the lead back at 3-2. They would hold on from there and picked up a big two points on opening night.
