Regina – The Regina Pats saw their three game win streak come to an end on Friday night in a 4-2 loss to the Kootenay ICE at the Brandt Centre.

The ICE got the scoring started 46 seconds into the first when Alec Baer put home his 23rd and it was 1-0 after one.

In the second, the Pats found a tying goal from Nick Henry, his ninth and it was 1-1. However, Kootenay responded with three straight, one shorthanded, one on the powerplay and one even strength to lead 4-1 after 40 minutes.

The Pats got the game to within two when Matt Bradley picked up his 31st, 6:33 into the third period but the ICE would hold on from there for the 4-2 victory.

Sam Steel led the Pats with two assists while Ryan Kubic made 29 saves.

Regina outshot Kootenay 39-33, the powerplay was oh for five and the penalty kill was one for two.

The race...or should I say crawl... to the finish line and post season in the East behind Moose Jaw and Swift Current continued on this evening. Regina lost to the Ice, PA lost to the Broncos, and Saskatoon lost to Brandon, although the Wheat Kings were fortunate to win and did largely because of Logan Thompson playing really well in goal once again; it was also interesting to see the Blades' Coach pull the goalie when they were only down 4-3, and there was over 2 minutes left. Why? They were scored on, and then once again when their goalie was on the Bench. I did feel somewhat for Tyler Brown, a frequent whipping boy on this blog and defended usually by only a few such as Mr. Weppler. He played well enough tonight, but his demeanor seemed to be more dejected, probably because this is it as an overager, and instead of being with Regina at the Memorial Cup, he gets to play with a team that may or may not make the playoffs. However, and like many of his past performances in Brandon (when wearing the blue, red and white), there was a point where a big save could have stayed the flow of momentum in favour of Brandon, and kept the Blades ahead. He stopped what he should but did not make that big save to stem the energy and confidence Brandon was building after laying an egg for the first two periods. Is Kucic better? I doubt it but that move by Regina did give the Pats a goalie who can come back next season, as well as a high scoring overager in Hebig. If Regina could just get hot for about two weeks in May, who knows what may occur at the Memorial Cup?

Appears the boys were looking ahead to the trio of Warrior games this week?

Not what should be expected from a team this loaded. After taking over a talented team a few years back and trading everyone away for last year, we are left with this 52 wins as a distant memory. A dream team last season and we didn't get the job done. This year poor planning from the get go and then trying to build a team at the deadline. The team that played in the last two home games will embarrass the city and fans if they play at the level they did. Yet extensions all the way around. Makes you wonder!

season tickets will most definitely drop from 5,300 this season back to the 3,000 range next year. I suppose the lineups at concessions will be quicker.

After that performance it is an embarasment to be a Pats fan. How in the hell do you came out in front of your home fans and play like idiots.

As far as I am concerned with all the older players on this team it seems that they are in competition to see who can do less in a game than the others and by god 99% of them passed.

Lazy is a good start but I think I will leave it at that as some words could get pretty ugly.

Each and ever player on that team has been given a glorious opportunity to be on a Mem cup team and be in the spotlight for the scouts if you have not been drafted and by god they are blowing there chances,how stupid are you?

This team needs to get there asses kicked by the coaching staff and sit a few games and see the coaches mean business.

The coaches run the team not a bunch of overrated older players who think they are untouchable and reality will set in soon. Really a lot of them are not as good as made out to be. Just names thats all.

Can hardly wait for Sat game and see who shows up to play. There is more effort watching the little kids at the end of the periods play,at least they have heart and spirit to play the game of hockey.

Bound to end sooner or later. Was a long thrilling ride. It's not like they have lost half their games this year.

Seems Wiens and Weppler are WEEPING on here again today and after another home town loss last night I don't see many comments on here.

No one over looked this game, they just are that inconsistent. Bad play at the mem cup won't embarrass the city because Only 6500 people out of 260000 are going to the games.
