The Rebels scored twice in the opening 17 minutes of the first period but Regina responded when Josh Mahura burned up the left wing and buried his sixth of the year to get the Pats to within a goal before the end of the period.
Jack Flaman restored the two goal lead for Red Deer early in the second frame, making it 3-1, but the Pats powerplay would respond.
First, Jonathan Smart potted his second of the season and then Josh Mahura hammered home his second of the night, seventh of the year, to tie the game 3-3 heading to the third.
The game stayed tied until the 9:44 mark when Matt Bradley scored from his knees at the left goal line for his team leading 14th and that stood up as the winner in a 4-3 final.
