The Regina Pats got on the board early and often in the first as they jumped out to a 3-0 lead before Medicine Hat scored one late on the power play. The Regina goals came from Sean Richards, Austin Wagner and Lane Zablocki to get things started. The story in the first, however, was Pats Forward Adam Brooks who notched three assists to bring his season point total to 77. In doing so, Brooks took over the league lead in scoring. He currently sits one point up on the Moose Jaw Warriors, and former Pat, Dryden Hunt in the scoring race.
Regina would add one in the second from Sam Steel and an empty netter late in the third from Sergey Zborovskiy. With the win the Pats move seven points up on Medicine, sweeping the season series 4-0. Regina Pats Goalie Tyler Brown turned away 41 shots en route to the victory.
