REGINA - Morgan Klimchuk scored the winner in the shootout as the Regina Pats edged the visiting Medicine Hat Tigers 3-2 on Friday in Western Hockey League action.

Jacob Doty and Elgin Pierce scored for the Tigers (17-20-3) as Cam Lanigan turned aside 31 shots in a losing cause.

Regina went 1 for 6 on the power play while Medicine Hat scored once on four chances with the man advantage.  The win pulled the Pats within a point of the Tigers for the eighth and final playoff spot in the WHL's Eastern Conference.

What an exciting finish! Coach Pat deserves so much credit as he doesn't have an all-star team in front of him yet he seems to keep them competitive. He is by far the coach of the year. Great job. I sure wish more people would come watch the games though. Poor attendance for a Friday game.

Conacher showed his toughness by sitting his top line the entire second period. If they wont play the game the way he wants, then the other lines wont either. It showed what grit and sticking to the plan can do. The 3rd line gets the tying goal. They will need to play a solid road game to come away with points tonight.

As good as he is playing, trade Hewitt, get a little more talent in here and hope that Sacher can sneak you into the playoffs.
