In the second, Regina picked up goals from Sam Steel, his 18th, and Matt Bradley, his 30th, to lead 3-1 heading to the third.

Cameron Hebig added to the lead with a shorthanded goal on a 2 on one rush for his 35th of the year to make it 4-1 and that was the final score.

Sam Steel and Emil Oksanen led the offence with two points each while Max Paddock made 29 saves. The Pats outshot Prince George 60-30, the powerplay was one for four and the penalty kill eight for eight.

Looks like the Pats fans are giving up on this team with no one on here at all today. What more do you want ? They won last night , isn't that enough ?

I was going to say.
Not a lot of comments when the Pats win.
The haters have nothing to say.
Pats played a good game I think.
I sure wish we showed more urgency on a 5 minute power play.
Our penalty kill on our double minor looked better than our 5 minute power play.
This was one of the games that the Pats just had to win to build for a playoff run.

Giving up in our team???? What a stupid statement. We still put over 5000 in the rink on a Wednesday next Moose Jaw game and their barn will only be half full. Dominant Performance by the Pat's tonight...full marks and kudos to the kid in net for PG...

Can't beat any quality teams though outclassed by Broncos and warriors

Only reason you put 5000 in that barn is because everyone purchased season tickets to get tickets for the Memorial Cup. Keep me up to date on your crowds next year.

Pats killed off 8 penalties to Prince George. Try taking 8 penalties vs Swift Current or Moose Jaw and see how bad the Pats lose.

Yea I will take the 2 points mistake (SH breakaway goal) so defensively doing well. Will be a very good test over the next couple of weeks to see how this "new" Team steps up and starts to work as a "Team".

FACT...the Regina Pats, the most storied junior hockey team in all of the WORLD...(let that sink In for a minute)...will be in the Memorial Cup Tournament

There's just not a lot to say because the Pats were expected to win this game. PG is at the bottom of the league standings and were sellers at the trade deadline. The Pats looked good, but they were supposed to look good against PG. We will get a better idea of where the Pats are at when they play Moose Jaw and Swift Current again. The Pats played both teams recently and lost, so there's still lots of room for improvement.

Funny to hear the crybaby warriors and Broncos fans wine on this blog after every pats game... your symptoms of inferiority complex are showing badly!!!

The Bronco's are in a tail spin after getting their butts handed to them by Lethbridge on Friday. Rumoured dissent in the room and everyone playing the blame game. Hope they can get their act together before playoffs or it will be a quick exit

The Warriors are really struggling since that opening period they played against the Pats. Out-played badly in the 2nd and 3rd of that game, then barely beat Saskatoon, then overtime against the Canes, followed by back to back losses against the Tigers and the lowly Rebels. Seems like the wheels have fallen off in the Jaw. Hope they get this figured out or they will be swept in round 1 by the Raiders.
