It was a good bounce back win after a busy weekend, but lets play two games in a row where we don't give up goals before we reload the memorial cup championship bandwagon

Nolan Patrick was pretty well nonexistant tonight but must be hard for him at this point after not playing for most of the season. Hope he comes on in the stretch, but not against the Pats :))
Every game the new guys look better and the lines are coming together well. Fun to watch the 4th line (Buziak-Lockner-Pierce) in that they are well rested and give 110% when they are out there. They should be here for a long time so will be good to see them mature and get better.
Wheaties just couldn't withstand our relentless speed and forechecking today. Wagner was a monster and Leedahl is really on a hot streak. He has been one of our best 20 year olds in a while, other than Brooksy. Paddock played very well and has won 3 of 4 but sounds like Brown and Hollett will be back for the road trip next weekend. Hopefully they can stay healthy down the stretch. Our goaltending future looks very good with Hollett at 17 and Paddock 16 years old.

It was a breathe of fresh air hearing Al Dumba driving home from the game. He explained the the game for what it is and never once made it about him. He sounded professional and was enjoyable to listen too.

Great 60 min effort! Leedahl was on fire last night.

Go Pats!

Al Dumba is a local treasure for sure!

SUBWAY Promo - according to the Pats organization the promotion should be at all Regina locations, with the exception of the Evraz Place locations (Cooperators, Soccer Centre and the Brandt Centre).

So we couldn't even sell out a Sunday afternoon game against a rival team. One thousand empty seats!!! People have been commenting about Saskatoon and their small crowds, but we need to look at ourselves first before we criticize other team's fans. And didn't Saskatoon have 15,000 for a lacrosse game.

The Pats had a streak of 7 games I believe that were sold out and in the month of January, they averaged 5980 tickets sold. In a rink that holds 6484 people, that's 93% capacity. Not many teams can say they have reached that this season.
