PATS KNOCK OFF HITMEN 4-1

CALGARY - Koby Morrisseau and Bryan Lockner each had three point nights to lead the Regina Pats to a 4-1 win in Calgary over the Hitmen on Sunday.

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.

What’s Next?

Nice to see the young guys producing today as they will have to step up when Sam and Josh at World Junior camp come Dec 12th. Assuming they both make it won't see them for a month so should be interesting time.
Paddock had a solid game today as well which will boost his and coache's confidence.
You Warrior and Broncos fans should be selling out every game as you have 2 of the most talented and exciting Teams in the WHL. That doesn't happen often in this League so should take advantage of it...tough Division for sure.
Give'r heck on Wednesday in Brandon boys!

Pats won't even be in it when it comes to Cup time. This team is totally INCONSISTENT and you don't see a large string of wins happening . Brandon will probably kick their butts and they don't have a hope in hell of catching up to Swift or the Moose. "Go Wheaties Go " !

Don't need to catch swift or Mj. We're in the cup

When you're playing poorly all you need is a trip through the Central Division to fix that. Even Saskatoon has two wins in the USA and if they beat Seattle, they can come back with a 3-2 winning record. They Pats from the beginning of this season haven't been a fraction of last years team. Wasted too much worrying about Jost and Wagner when they should have been making the team better. Gave up too much last year now they need to go well into the next decade to try and buy some players. Expecting to turn this hot mess around at the trade deadline is ridiculous. Management has been slow to react to this years struggles and make improvements. Last year they left us short staffed and we didn't win anything worthwhile either. Maybe there needs to be some hard looks at what has been accomplished here last year and this. But we will get to represent our organization, team, city. League etc with a team that will be hard pressed to win 40 games. Freakin sad.

Cant get to excited because they won 2 games on the weekend, those where two bottom feeder teams that should be beat. With the announcement that Wagner wont be back hurts, the Pats needed him along with a couple more trades to be contenders. I hope management can pull a rabbit out of a hat before the trade deadline.
