CRANBROOK, B.C. - Matt Alfaro struck twice as the Ice beat Regina 5-3 Friday night at the RecPlex.

Tanner Lishchynsky and Austin Wellsby had a goal and two assists for Kootenay (8-31-3). Noah Philp had the other.

Adam Brooks, Connor Hobbs and Colton Kroeker found the back of the net for the Pats (17-18-6) who opened a six-game road trip with a second consecutive loss.

Jordan Hallett started the game in goal for the Pats, allowing four goals on 27 shots before making way for Kurtis Chapman.  The Pats outshot the Ice 48-34 while going 1/3 on the powerplay and 3/3 on the penalty kill.

The attendance was 1939.

Saturday night the Pats visit the Spokane Chiefs at 9:00 pm on 620 CKRM.

So you get rid of Cooper who can actually play hockey. Get rid of him and sign Williams from Americans who has fractured foot and can't play. Good move Pats!!!!!

find a smaller venue to play in so it could be said that the Pats sell out.

The Pats are limping along trying to get a playoff spot. They will be in tough to get one and actually don't deserve one right now. Past 10 game 2-5-2-2 is not impressive. Since the return from the last long road trip the Pats have been brutal in just about all phases. Scoring too up too many. All season the defence hasn't improved one bit. Steel ditto; hasn't been able to get going and new Williams probably won't help much. The talent has been overrated and the GM has done nothing all season to better the team. With this talent this isn't a team that will be much better next season. I think a lot of fans are starting to question the "plan" so often talked about as hokum. Paddock has two days to honestly review what he has and get rid of the under performers and quickly retool this mess.

This is an excerpt for Pat Sielecki's Hurricane Watch Blog out of Lethbridge. The Canes are a very young team who weren't supposed to do much this year. Great acquisitions and coaching have them poised to compete for the Eastern Division Championship. They beat Red Deer 4-3 last night.

"Lethbridge returns home Saturday (Jan. 9) to play a team they should roll right over. The Kootenay ICE are poised to miss the WHL playoffs for the first time in the last 18 seasons. The ICE have struggled big time and have only 8 wins in 42 games this season. The Hurricanes though can't take this game lightly and think it'll be a walk in the park. They need to treat this game the same as the first place show down in Red Deer."

Yes that is the message and the Canes are a great story. They will be even better next season.

Lethbridge can Regina cannot.
The difference between a one year rebuild and a three year money grab sold as a rebuild.

Paddock talked off this before the puck dropped on the season. No one should be surprised where they are.

My only big concern is goaltending.
