Coming home facing an 0-2 deficit in the best-of-seven affair, the Pats found themselves tied 1-1 after 20 minutes in Game 3 and tied 3-3 going to the third. Jake Lecyshyn (powerplay), Sam Steel and Lane Zablocki scored for Regina in the opening 40 minutes.
Regina turned it on in the third, erupting for three unanswered goals from Connor Hobbs (powerplay), Rykr Cole and Austin Wagner (shorthanded). Hobbs' and Cole's goals came just :12 seconds apart midway through the frame. Regina outshot the Rebels 14-8 over the final 20 minutes and are now very much alive in this series.
The Pats outshot the Rebels 40-28 in the game and goaltender Tyler Brown earned the victory making 25 saves. Trevor Martin took the loss for the Rebels, turning aside 34 pucks. Jake DeBrusk, Michael Spacek and Nelson Nogier scored for the losing side.
Regina was 2/7 on the powerplay and 2/3 killing penalties.
The attendance was 6247.
