Regina got the game’s first goal, 3:11 in when Josh Mahura scored on a slap shot from the blue line for his eighth of the year. The Calgary powerplay would tie it later in the period and it was 1-1 after one.
In the second, Bryan Lockner put home his fourth on a pretty passing play with Koby Morrisseau to give the Pats the 2-1 lead. Then, just as a powerplay expired Jake Leschyshyn scored his seventh off a rebound and the Pats took a 3-1 lead to the third.
In the final frame, Koby Morrisseau rounded out the scoring with his second of the season and 4-1 was the final from Calgary.
Regina outshot the Hitmen 30-18, the powerplay was 0/5, the penalty kill 3/4.
Max Paddock made 18 saves for his fifth win of the year.
