The Regina Pats fell behind early to the East Division-leading Brandon Wheat Kings, spotting them a 3-0 lead after one period. Brandon’s goals came from Jordan Thompson, Jayce Hawryluk and Ivan Provorov. Pats Goaltender Tyler Brown lasted one period giving up three goals on nine shots.
The Pats turned to rookie goalie Jordan Hollett in period two. Hollett did not fare much better surrendering Brandon goals to Reid Duke, Tim McGauley and Ivan Provorov to make it 6-0. The Provorov goal came on the power-play, with Regina facing a two man advantage, as a result of a partial line brawl that saw the Pats' James Hilsendager, and Brandon’s Shael Higson each receive a game misconduct.
Regina broke the shutout with a late goal in the third by Cole Sanford. The Wheat Kings also added two more for the 8-1 victory.
