COORS LIGHT RECAP: PATS FALL 6-3 TO WARRIORS

Keith Hershmiller Photography
Regina – The Regina Pats fell 6-3 at the hands of the Moose Jaw Warriors on Wednesday night at the Brandt Centre.

Moose Jaw took a 1-0 lead at the seven minute mark but Cameron Hebig responded for the Pats on a breakaway for his 39th and it was 1-1 after 20 minutes.

In the second, Sam Steel scored on the powerplay for his 22nd of the year to give the Pats the 2-1 lead. However, Moose Jaw came back and scored three times in a span of 43 seconds to lead 4-2 and that as the score at the second intermission.

The Warriors added to the lead at the 6:30 mark of the third to make it 5-2 but Josh Mahura got it back with a powerplay goal, his 19th and it was 5-3.

The Pats pulled their goaltender late and the Warriors would score into the empty cage to make it 6-3 and that was the final score.

Matt Bradley led the Pats with three assists, Sam Steel and Josh Mahura had two points while Max Paddock made 30 saves.

The shots on goal were 36-36, the Regina powerplay went two for five and the penalty kill four for five.

After watching Canada and USA Ladies hockey in the Olympics tonight , I would probably take both of those teams who play a solid 60 minutes over the Pats in a NO HITTING best of 7 series. Fantastic hockey and no let up by either team in a Canada 2-1 win.

Nothing positive to take out of that game regardless of the how the spin doctors want to portray it. MJ has world class speed which may be even better than the Pats of last year. The Pats struggled to keep up in the first. Got into trouble in the second and third because of MJ's speed and skill. It was just a minute or so that stopped them, but because the couldn't handle the speed they got into penalty trouble in the second. They were slow and were just beat by speed on MJ's 5th goal in the third which was a killer. Max Paddock has been pretty good but last night he wasn't. With Kubic possibly having a concussion the job could be his for a while and he will need to step up.The Pats were chasing MJ all night and their lack of speed was exposed. You can tell the Pats coaching is not up to snuff. They didn't play good defence last year and they don't play good defence this year. They needed to keep a guy high and plug up the middle of the ice to stop MJ. They should be trapping in the middle to stop the speed of MJ much like teams did to them last year. Our coaches are slow to react and our players are not being taught defence. I don't think Hay or Constantine would put up with their sloppy defensive play. They don't have the speed or skill to play run and gun with MJ. Only our coaches don't see that. The way they have played since Jan 10 is unacceptable. At about .590 they will be a light lunch for the good teams coming to the Memorial Cup. Very sad indeed.

.590? Add up they're loser points they're below 500. These guys don't know how to win anymore. I really hoped we'd get this one. Yikes.

Why did we get Gabrielle again? What a waste of time! The only good thing he did last night was find the right penalty box to sit in!

Loudest thing in the rink last night by a mile was some Moose Jaw fan with a huge drum.

Wow is Moose Jaw soft! If Pats or any team start hitting those forwards, they will wilt.

Remember Ottenbreit in the final last year? Paddock needs to show film of how he and Bear played against Regina and show it to his guys.

Howden, Halbwachs and others need to get put on their wallet a time or two and when that happens, they will fold.

ya MJ should face a little bit of ice every now and then..problem is the Pats are too slow to catch them in a good hitting position...

Hajek has been brutal since coming here…reminds me of Martin Marincin who we paid to much for as well…

Average to poor acquisitions, no speed, very little discipline or grit…recipe for greatness...

Completely agree on Gabrielle and MJ being soft.

Disagree on Hajek. I thought he was good last night.

Were you at the game last night or just know absolutely nothing about hockey? Hajek was likely our best player last night. Played great.

Imagine, Saskatoon Blades are only 3 points back of the Pats and have a game in hand. Pats next 2 games will be against Moose Jaw ( Probably 2 Losses ) . Saskatoon has won the last 3 in a row so things could get interesting . It could all lead up to a big rest before the Memorial Cup.

So it came down to 43 seconds...other than that a closely played game?

13 games left - 10 of them on the road! Guess we'll see just how much they want it. Even if they get in, will be tough to get past first round.
