The Raiders scored two goals in similar fashion as defencemen joined the attack and connected from the slot. Vojtech Budik opened the scoring with a power play goal just 1:55 into the game, while Jesse Lees picked up the insurance marker at the 6:44 mark of the middle frame. Reid Gardiner registered his 100th WHL goal into an empty net to round out the scoring.
Cole Sanford got the only goal of the night for the Pats as he broke Parenteau’s shutout at 6:58 of the third period.
Parenteau’s 41 saves came on 42 shots, while Regina goaltender Tyler Brown turned away 21 of 23 attempts.
The Pats outshot the Raiders 42-23. Prince Albert went 1-for-4 on the power play, while Regina was 1-for-6.
The attendance was 4981.
The win by the Raiders guarantees them a spot in the playoffs and improves their record to 34-20-7-1. The Pats see their seven-game win streak come to an end as their record slips to 30-24-3-4.
The Pats return to action Saturday at Saskatoon in a 7:00 pm faceoff on 620 CKRM.
