Congrats to Jordan Hollett on the shut out and to the Pats for another win.

I think it's pretty obvious why the number of comments are different based on the opponent. The Pats have beat the Bronco's all year long and are expected to beat them every game. The Everett Silvertips were the best team in the West for most of the season and the Pats have lost to a few top Western teams, so the Silvertips game was a huge challenge for them. Everyone (or a lot of people) had that one circled on their calendars.

The rest of the season should be a lot of fun. The playoffs are a little over a month way.

Agreed Hollett was strong, especially on the 2 clear breakaways by the Broncos in the last 2 periods. Didn't see the 1st period when Pats outshot them badly but sounded like Papirny made a few good saves and we missed a couple of open "backdoors".

These are the games we are expected to win and so far the Pats have been not disappointed. Brandon is always tough in their Barn and, Moose Jaw, well, it's going to be anyones game with such a great rivalry this year.

Go Pats Go!

To the idiots who never go to games and get their info here…your ignorance knows no bounds.

Nobody cares about the Pats beating SC…nobody. They are a mediocre team and the Pats should beat them. To those of us who have seasons tickets and rent the WHL away games package and watch every game…well we know different.

The Pats were sloppy after the 1st period and could have easily lost this game if not for a few goal posts. This team showed it's true colours in the Everett game. They don't have the forward depth and someone has to be held accountable. They traded away all their grit, character, and toughness, and don't look like a together cohesive unit. They got caught without enough veteran forwards and that doesn't show good preparedness.

No nobody cares about a 2-0 game. The real concern should be the Pats playing Everett for a championship.

Last anon, it's sad that you seem to live such a negative life. I wish for better things for you. "Nobody cares"? Speak for yourself.

Hollett got his first shutout and it was another win against a divisional team. This season ticket holder cares about every win!

They don't have forward depth? What the hell are you talking about? Pats can still run all 4 lines come the 3rd period. In Red Deer on the weekend the Rebels were all over the Pats for a good part of the game but come the 3rd period, their top 2 lines were bagged and were struggling to keep up with us. Maybe that doesn't happen against every team but that sure stood out to me on the weekend.

They didn't play their greatest game against Everett but they didn't play horrible by any means.

I believe they will keep succeeding. I hope they have a good road stretch.

GO Pats! Keep up the good work, it's been a great year so far!
