COORS LIGHT RECAP: BRONCOS DOWN PATS 4-2

SWIFT CURRENT - The Regina Pats gave up two goals in the final five minutes and fell 4-2 in Swift Current to the Broncos on Saturday night.

Swift got off to a good start with two goals in the opening 12 minutes to lead 2-0 after the opening frame.

The Pats turned it around in the second when Bryan Lockner tipped home his sixth of the season to cut the lead in half. Then late in the period, Nick Henry jammed in his seventh and it was a 2-2 game after 40 minutes.

It stayed that way until the Broncos took the lead back with just under 5 minutes left off the stick of Matteo Gennaro. The Broncos added another late for the 4-2 victory.

Regina outshot Swift Current 35-28, the powerplay was one for four, the penalty kill two for two and Jacob Wassermann and Tyler Brown combined to make 24 saves.

Quick Hits
- Jacob Wassermann made 15 saves on 17 shots in his WHL debut.
- Austin Pratt played in his first game with Regina after being acquired from Red Deer.
- Bryan Lockner returned to the lineup after missing the previous three with an upper-body injury.

What’s Next?
The Pats (20-19-3) are right back at it Sunday afternoon against the Prince Albert Raiders. Puck drops at 4 p.m. at the Brandt Centre. Tickets are available at reginapats.com and the Brandt Centre Box office.

Well damn. Great 2nd period! I imagine the next couple weeks will be up and down in terms of wins/losses as the trades happen and the new team gels. It's going to be interesting.

Go Pats!

Wow.... Saskatoon Blades have won 9 of their last 10 and have gone 2 points ahead of the slumping Regina Pats. Hard to believe that the Blades were so far behind before the Christmas break and have moved up so quickly. God job Blades... Keep up the good work. Go Blades Go !

IMO I don’t see Paddock pulling any blockbuster deals. He sees how good the other teams are and selling the farm for a couple deals will suffer the team for years to come. Yes, I do believe he will make a couple moves, but the names won’t be high end.
Someone mentioned earlier about trading Steel, I tend to agree. He won’t be back next year, get a couple players now and a draft pick. He can’t do it all on this team with what the players they have now. I would also seriously think of trading Henry.
The top teams in the east and west are miles ahead of the Pats, making big moves to be representable at the Mem Cup to me is pointless. They will be out first round if they even get in.

Seriously this is just terrible. A game they could have won with even average goaltending

"Note to ownership and management": Find someone who even remotely resembles a goalie. Lots of people who say goaltending wasn't the problem didn't watch the first period of last nights game.

How can this team be expected to win against a good team on the road when they have to start two goals down and climb from there. Every other game or so this is the case. It's destroying the team. Unacceptable.
We outshot them 18-7 in the second period and should have been up 2-0 but were just tied.

It wasn't the rookie defence-men who were the problem. We had a pair of vets on the ice for all four goals. When the LP reported erratic goaltending and a weak defence they were't wrong.

Pats will never catch Saskatoon for 1st wildcard slot now.

The Pats are so bad that the Blades are actually better than them. No one would ever suggest that the Blades are memorial cup contenders. Why is hockey so poor in the largest centres?

Hmmm, appears the Pats have already caught Saskatoon for 1st wildcard slot.
