BRANDON, MB – The Regina Pats snapped their four game winless streak on Sunday afternoon with a 4-2 victory in Brandon over the Wheat Kings. 

The Pats opened the scoring shorthanded in the first thanks to Adam Brooks and led 1-0 after 20 minutes. 

Connor Hobbs scored in the second for the Pats, his 28th but Brandon got two and it was a 2-2 game heading to the final period. 

Sam Steel gave the Pats the lead for good, 2:24 into the third, with his 46th and Wyatt Sloboshan added an empty netter to give the Pats the two points. 

Regina outshot Brandon 54-38, Tyler Brown made 36 stops for the Pats, Logan Thompson 50 for the Wheat Kings. The Regina powerplay was 0/5 and the penalty kill was 4/5 with a shorthanded goal.

MJ has won 9 straight and won Sunday 11-2. They are salivating to get Pats home and home next weekend and prove they should have been in the top 5 in CHL this season, with those Toasted Patsies.

So glad they snapped that losing streak. I hope Leedahl is ok. We can't lose another forward.

GO PATS! Way to get back in the win column!

Looked like a pretty good 60 minute effort today...shot count was up but still think they need to direct more pucks toward the net on the PP...0 for 5 tonight and very few shots on the latter ones. Pats did hit 2 posts on the 1st PP they had early in the 1st...I thought to we go again!

It was a great end to the weekend so now a couple days rest before another 3 tough games this week. Going to have to dig deep and not look past the Broncos to the back to back with Warriors on the weekend.

Great win...Go Pats Go!

Who gives two sh@ts about chl rankings. It does squat for you when it comes to playoffs. All it does is put a big target on your back when you are rated top 5 in the chl. What matters is who comes out at the end of March and plays balls to the walls. Look at the midget aaa; 3 of the 4 top teams are out in the first round. So for all you keyboard warriors let's see what happens in March, April and May; may the best team win.

Mr Weppler,
I can't help but notice that your tone has changed a bit from the last time the Pats visited Swift Current. Last time, in anticipation of the Pats and Broncos meeting you said you 'felt sorry for the Broncos'. This time your comment is that the Pats are 'going to have to dig deep and not look past the Broncos'. Amazing what four straight home losses can do for one's attitude, eh?

There you have it. Comment number one, MJ is upset that they haven't been rated all year. Pretty sad MJ

It's nice to see the Pats snap their losing streak and play good hockey again. Hopefully they are back on track and stay on track for the rest of the season.

While a win is good, it's still a big pile of steamy BS over at Pat Land. Now it looks Leedahl has a significant injury so what's to be happy about? It doesn't detract from the the fact that Paddock and crew didn't bring in enough veteran depth to make a run. Lecsyshyn is gone, Pierce is gone, Holmes is still out and now it would seem that Leedahl will miss some time as it's reported he is doubtful for the SC game. How many 15 year olds do they think they can bring in and still compete? They didn't have one available player in Tier 2 ?? this isn't about winning one game, it's about the lack of depth this team was left with.

THx for putting a name on your post Andrew as not many willing to do that on this blog.

As you know I bleed Blue but also am a WHL fan and a realist. Pats had just lost previous to that game in Swift and usually they come out hot the next game so that was the reference. I beleive they did win that game, although a close one, and then 7-0 the next meeting before the losing streak set in. Unfortunately a Pats/Broncos match up just doesn't compare to the Pats/Warriors rivalry, which has been revived this year. I think the players sense that, which must drive the Coaches crazy, and sometimes do not focus on the game at hand.

Should be a good one Wednesday and may the best Team win that night.

Go Pats Go!!

Ok, fair enough Mr Weppler. I am looking forward to the game on Wednesday. All of the Pats/Broncos games in Swift have been competitive and entertaining this year, so hopefully we see more of the same.
