REBELS 2 PATS 1

Keith Hershmiller Photography
REGINA (CP) - Trevor Martin made 27 saves and Red Deer did its scoring in the first period en route to downing the Pats 2-1 Monday in the Brandt Centre.

It was the Pats' first-ever Hockey Day Game, with 6484 school kids from all across Saskatchewan packing the arena.  Unfortunately they witnessed the Pats' third consecutive loss and despite the score, Regina was outmatched. They only had twelve shots on goal through two periods.

Evan Polei and Jake DeBrusk built up a 2-0 lead in the first for the Rebels (38-22-3).

Sam Steel responded in the third period for Regina (30-26-7), in fact scoring with one second to go to spoil the shutout bid.  Tyler Brown kicked out 32-of-34 shots in defeat.

The Pats will try to avoid a fourth straight loss on Wednesday when they host the Kootenay Ice at 7:00 pm on 620 CKRM.

...Pats didn't compete and the score flattered them. They needed to go to the tough places but just weren't wiling or able to do that. Very obvious that they are simply too small. Were manhandled all game. Probably a short playoff run maybe five games..

6480 Screaming Kids and 4 Adults and they still couldn't win. Ho Hum.

Great atmosphere at the game today with all the school kids there. Kudos to the Pats organization for getting involved. It was a success as I have heard all of the them have been around the WHL.

Credit where credit due - the Rebels have "bought" a Team for Mem Cup run and if they get the goaltending they are going to be tough. Once they had the 2 goal lead they basically shut us down offensively. Yea we had some opportunities but like the last two games couldn't finish.

Enjoyed the game as usual and saw it from a different perspective from the lower bowl behind the penalty benches (great seat I must say). Hopefully Hobbs not out of the lineup too long as missed his skills on PP and overall. Brown played well enough (again) for the Pats to win. Hopefully can get back to thier winning ways with these Home games this week.

Two days ago the Rebels were beat at home 6-2 by a young Victoria team. The Rebels have been beat by a lot of teams lately and are actually struggling big time. They have fallen out of the CHL top ten and doubtful to do much at the memorial Cup. This losing streak goes back to the winning streak where lots of people we getting giddy with seven in a row including the last four being poor efforts. The team didn't pay the price for the last four wins on the winning streak and felt they could keep playing that way. Now they've lost three in a row to gritty teams, and have others coming Wednesday and Friday which I fully expect they will lose too. So much for the winning streak. When the chips are down you need to play smash mouth hockey and finish. The Pats are not built for that kind of hockey.

Pats were robbed of a goal late in the third when Steel scored on a wrap around. The Officials missed it but replays show the puck in...
