The Pats saw their 11 game win streak come to an end with a 4-2 loss to the U.S. Division-leading Everett Silvertips before 5,484 fans.
The Pats trailed 1-0 after one and 4-1 after two periods in the contest.
Regina got to within two in the third on a goal from Dawson Leedahl but Carter Hart shut the door from there, enroute to a first star performance.
Sam Steel picked up an assist in the loss, his 100th point of the season.
The Silvertips outshot the Pats 31-28 in their one and only meeting of the season.
The Regina powerplay was 0/3 and the penalty kill was 4/4.
A slow start victimized the Pats and they faced a well-prepared Everett team which was clearly aware of Regina's #1 national ranking. Everett's Carter Hart won the goaltending duel, making the timely save time-after-time while Regina could only briefly erase the two-goal deficit.
- Sam Steel picked up his 100th point of the season in his 48th game.
- Tyler Brown suffered his first loss in his seventh start since returning from his lower body injury.
- Dawson Leedahl scored his 27th goal of the season against his former team.
