That headline so misleading. A hapless effort by the Pats vs the 2nd worst team in the entire WHL. Wasn't a good effort at all. Hope they get their S h ## together at Edmonton Sunday (who is thee worst team in WHL)

Anon #1 - I assume you were at the game to give your analysis as a hapless effort by the Pats? If so your opinion is valid, however occasionally we give an opinion by only comparing the standings. It is possible that the opponent played very well and the Pats did in fact dig down to eek out a win against a fired up adversary. Having said that I wasn't there and can't give a specific response, just a broad observation of a possibility.

I would call that another character win for the Memorial Cup host Regina Pat's. Down 4 zip to Saskatoon and come back for the win..down against Calgary and come back for the win. Kinda like last year, never out if it. Oh and thank you MJ for beating Saskatoon... we appreciate it. See some of you in Regina at the Memoial Cup.

It probably was a "hapless" win. As far as character win well that simply laughable. If you're going to be seriously viewed a Memorial Cup contender, having to fight to get an OT win is truly pretty hapless. Lots of good players but little chemistry or character.
