REGINA - Not only did the Regina Pats win their sixth game in a row on Wednesday, they did so in dramatic fashion.

Before another impressive crowd of 5,402, the Pats jumped out to a 1-0 lead after the opening 20 minutes on a breakaway goal by Austin Wagner.
In a tight, back-and-forth game the teams traded goals throughout with Moose Jaw's Tanner Jeannot and Brett Howden scoring in the middle period along with Regina's Robbie Holmes. That made it 2-2 after 40 minutes.
The Pats' Nick Henry put Regina up 3-2 midway through the third period however Jeannot scored his second of the night for the Tribe to tie it 3-3 with five minutes remaining.
In a wild finish, Hobbs beat Warrior goalie Zach Sawchenko in the game's final minute to give Regina its 35th victory of the season.
The Pats were outshot 33-31 while going 0/4 on the powerplay and 3/3 killing penalties.
Tyler Brown collected the win in the Pats net making 30 saves while Sawchenko suffered the loss with 27 stops.
