PATS 3 WHEAT KINGS 1
Regina (18-21-4) also got a goal and an assist from Morgan Klimchuk and the eventual game winner from captain Colton Jobke. The win extends the Pats' winning streak to five games.
Scheidl, the Pats' leading goal scorer, has 22 on the season. Next in line is Klimchuk with 21. Both are sitting at 49 points.
Brandon (14-24-4) got its only goal from Tim McGauley, with his 11th of the season.
The Wheat Kings, who are without top scorer Alessio Bertaggia, have lost their last four games. Bertaggia played for Switzerland at the 2013 World Junior Hockey Championship and is expected to return to Brandon next week.
The Wheat Kings went one for three on the power play and the Pats one for five. Regina's Matt Hewitt (11-15-3) made 25 saves while Corbin Boes (9-18-2) stopped 31 shots in the loss.
The victory vaulted Regina into 8th in the WHL's Eastern Conference. Their next action is Wednesday at P.A. on 620 CKRM (Press Box Sports Bar Pregame Show at 6:35 pm, faceoff at 7:00 pm).
