Great team win for the guys! Brooks takes a vicious high stick in the 3Rd, knocks out his front teeth and he's back in game immediately with a cage on his helmet. How's that for a captain and leadership, great win! We'll see Brandon in 2nd round, book it. Go Pats Go

Obviously Shaun and Gavin paid off the refs before Kelly could.

What a stupid comment about the Sempels paying off the refs. Gather you didn't watch the game very close.

A great hockey game. The Pats played awesome, even in the 1st when Brandon was shooting us by a big margin, we killed off a huge 5on3. The second half of the game we were all over them. Steel is playing his best hockey of the season, Sanford is awesome, Brooks is MVP. Lots of positives coming around!!

It was a hard fought game that the WK's could have done some damage in with all their pp's in the first period. Brown was large for them and the got out of the period with a lead. They turned it around in the second and I thought we the better team the rest of the way. It would be nice to string a few consecutive wins together.

I wonder what the status of Colby Williams is? There has been little to no updates on him and his recovery.

Though having Colby back is great for team, Pat's are winning and competing without him. I think the guys are finding themselves, feels like confidence is beginning to take over. Mondays game in Swift is big. Swift's on a real roll, if the Pats control game and momentum and win, look out, Moose Jaw is in 7th and PA goes home in 1st round.
