COORS LIGHT RECAP: PATS EVEN SERIES 1-1

SCBroncos.com/David Zammit
SWIFT CURRENT - Ryan Kubic made 32 saves and Cameron Hebig scored twice as the Pats won game two in Swift Current on Saturday night, 2-1 over the Broncos to tie the series 1-1.

Regina scored their first goal of the series when Sam Steel set up Cameron Hebig in front, he went backhand and scored his first goal to make it 1-0 and that was the score after one.

There were no goals in the second but in the third, Regina went up 2-0 when Hebig put home a one timer from the left circle on the powerplay for his second of the night. Swift Current got one back with 12:48 left but Regina held on from there for the 2-1 win.

Cameron Hebig and Sam Steel led the offence with two point nights while Ryan Kubic made 32 saves.

Regina was outshot 33-32, the powerplay went one for five and the penalty kill seven for seven.

Quick Hits
- Cameron Hebig scored the first two playoff goals of his WHL career.
- Ryan Kubic made 32 saves to win the first game in his WHL career.
- Sam Steel had two assists and has 48 career playoff points.

What’s Next?
The Pats and Broncos will meet again in game three Monday night at the Brandt Centre at 7 p.m. The game will be broadcast on 620 CKRM and Access 7. Tickets are available at reginapats.com and the Brandt Centre Box Office.

Squeaked out a great win in a super game by both Teams. Looked like the "A" line from Swift is getting a little frustrated....correct Gawdin? He took a couple of dumb ones, as did a few Pats.

Kubes is Master right now and Skinner not too shabby either. Everything we want in a Series appears to be here. Great for us fans!

The non-Goal - think it was the correct call...a Crease violation...based on my research of what that is.

Go Pats!... and Go Raiders! :))

Ya baby Ya!!! What a win by the pats last night! They dominated those broncos in their own barn! Swift Current should feel grateful that it's not 2-0 for Regina right now!

Pats saved their playoff hopes with game 2 win

This is a clear indication that the Pats are as good as any team in the playoffs. They look to be finding their stride and getting better each time out. if they continue to bring their A game, I like their chances.

I'm sure if the disputed goal had been the other way around,it would have counted, and Ive seen them counted. The first two games were poorly officiated and the calls made were definitely confusing and unquestionably slanted. Paddock should stand up for his team and have a talk with Robison about what's been going on. The Pats now have home ice advantage with the win and have to win the home games and they will be fine. I think they will be even better in games here.

Is there any word on Paddock and Gabrielle? I can't believe they would just be scratched and no word on it. Are they sick/injured? Discipline issues?

Go Pats and what about go Lafleche, hope they are selected for kraft contest.

If Games 3 and 4 are like 1 & 2, it is safe to say the BC will be the place to be Monday and Wednesday. Very even series from what I have seen so far with goals at a premium. Puck luck will determine who wins this one.

MJ one shot away from being 2-0. They're going to gag in the first round again!

Believe I heard Paddock was hurt in practice before game one, and heard Gabs was banged up as well.

Huge win, advantage....Pats. Home ice advantage that is.

I'll be at game four. Can't wait!

Moose Jaw will not Gag , but the Pats will Puke when this series is over and they are history.

Moose Jaw got their wake up call. It will be over in 5 and it won't be for the Raiders.

Anonymous said...

did not watch the Pats/Broncos but the offiating in game 2 in MJ left a lot to be desired. Lots of clutch and grab, interference, crap after the whistle not called, then used their imagination to call penalties on nothing.

Why do the rules change because it is playoffs?

bdunc said...

Nice win by the Memorial Cup hosts Regina Pats...the highly talented offensive power Swift Current could only mange 1 goal in over 4 1/2 periods... gag..anyway that Gaudwin is quite a leader cheap hits and stupid penalties..by the way the Pat's will never be history this year they will be there in May...wil you? Nobody on this Regina based blog cares about what's going on with PA and MJ

WesternManitobaRiders said...

Two great series to start the first round in the East with the Jaw and PA as well as Regina and Speedy Creek. Good hockey, and close games, with a bounce or break here and there perhaps why decides the series. Solid goaltending, no injuries to star players and staying out of the penalty box is all crucial at this time of year. Actually,it is too bad that two of these teams will be out in the first round, especially when, with the greatest of respect, these four teams seem to be playing at a level higher than the other four teams in the East first round playoffs, being the Hat, Brandon, Lethbridge and Red Deer. Yes, the Tigers have been able to score two impressive wins but Logan Thompson is playing hurt, and he was the biggest reason the Wheat Kings were able to have a decent season, and despite the trade deadline action which sent Kale Clague and others down the road for a bundle of high draft picks. As to Red Deer, they are weak, and Lethbridge also made a number of trades for the future. I could be wrong but I still see Moose Jaw and Swift Current moving on to round two, but it could be 6 or 7 games for them them each to do so.

The same people saying MJ won't gag are the same people who said that last year too. Don't worry people, you'll be 0 for 2 when MJ lets you down....................AGAIN!

Andrew Wiens said...

Hey bdunc, you brag about the Pats being there in May but do you really care if the Pats win anything this year? After all, I doubt you would be able to see a Memorial Cup banner in the rafters of the Brandt centre past the glare of your 3 million dollar score clock (whatever it takes to sooth your ego buddy). By the way, your description of Gawdin as '[someone characterized by] cheap hits and stupid penalties' pretty accurately sums up the game of Connor Hobbs last year, and considering how far you went with him, I think we will happily take our chances with Gawdin.

Andrew Wiens said...

Morgan, if you want to see playoff domination then maybe you should watch the Lethbridge/Red Deer series. Not sure if you pay attention to anything happening outside of your Regina Pats bubble so I'll just let you know that the Canes are completely dominating the Rebels right now and what transpired at the iPlex on the weekend didn't resemble that series in any way, shape, or form.

Andrew Wiens said...

Mr Weppler, just wondering if from doing your research you could explain the difference between crease violations as they are called in the IIHF and those in the WHL - I wasn't entirely clear on why that goal was waved off the other night. I thought crease violations were more of an international hockey nuance like what we saw at the Olympics this year.

william weppler said...

Andrew - NHL rule (69) states - " Goals should be disallowed only if: (1) an attacking
player, either by his positioning or by contact, impairs the goalkeeper’s
ability to move freely within his crease or defend his goal; or (2) an
attacking player initiates intentional or deliberate contact with a
goalkeeper, inside or outside of his goal crease.
The overriding rationale of this rule is that a goalkeeper should
have the ability to move freely within his goal crease without being
hindered by the actions of an attacking player. If an attacking player enters the goal crease and, by his actions, impairs the goalkeeper’s
ability to defend his goal, and a goal is scored, the goal will be
disallowed."
Apparently some discretion on Ref's part depending on whether they feel the player in question "in any way" inhibited the goalie's ability to defend his net.
What I saw in the replay was that Mahovlich was definitely in the crease well before puck entering crease, AND he inhibited Skinner's ability to defend his net by directly screening (not phyically interfering with) Skinner. Thus the "crease violation" no goal call. The Ref did not hesitate so he was on top of the play.
I believe if Mahovolich had moved to the side of the crease, but still remained in the crease, and thus not screened Skinner, the goal would have counted, if in fact the puck had still gone in.

bdunc said...

Easy there Mr Wiens....get your facts straight ...the score clock was only 2 million...I am not bragging about the Memorial Cup hosts Regina Pats being there in May...it is just a fact.The banners are hung at the west end far away from the glare...but If we are good enough to win it we will be sure to sine a bright light on it.It was the announcers who commented a few times about Gadwin and his "stupidity" and as for whining about Hobbs...those who live in the past are doomed to repeat it! Now go treat yourself to a Snickers bar and enjoy the series.

Morgan said...

Nice job of deflecting Andrew! You should be a politician! Pats are roasting your precious Broncos right before your very eyes once again! Boom shakala!!!

Andrew Wiens said...

bdunc, If you want straight facts then visit this article (http://reginapats.com/pats-reveal-new-centre-ice-score-clock) where it states that the 'total cost for the clock and Brandt Centre upgrades will be over $3 million.' Now you can say that the score clock itself is not 3 million if you want, but it doesn't do you much good if it isn't suspended in the rafters does it? As for living in the past, I sure hope the Broncos don't repeat the Pat's recent past; you know, was it fun watching Turner Ottenbreit skate around the Brandt Centre ice with 'your trophy' last year? By the way, a fact only needs to be stated once (you know very well that everyone in the league already knows the Pats will be there in May); bragging requires stating a fact over and over and over again - just like you have been doing.

Andrew Wiens said...

Mr Weppler,
Thanks for the detailed break down of crease violations. So is it fair to say then that in international hockey the play is blown dead the instant a player's skate enters the crease regardless of whether or not he is interfering with the goaltender; whereas in the WHL it's at the referee's discretion whether or not his being in the crease interferes with the goaltender? It's hard to believe that Mahovlich being in the crease on that play made it unnecessarily difficult for Skinner to make that save; after all, goalies are accustomed to looking around opposing forwards all the time. The only think that makes sense is if the ref felt that Skinner should have at least been able to move freely to the top of his crease to cut down the angle on the shot. At any rate, there would have been some pretty deafening booing had that call gone against the Broncos :-)

Andrew Wiens said...

Morgan, better not step outside during these playoffs; with all the hot air you generate you might float away.

Morgan said...

You're on a pro pats blog running your mouth about how great your Broncos are and you expect not to hear it back from the pats fans? Good Lord you're one silly idiot Andrew Wiens!!!

Andrew Wiens said...

You know, Morgan, it seems kind of unlikely that this blog has 'twice been voted Canada's number one sports blog' because only Regina Pats fans hang out here. Also, if this blog is as 'pro-Pats' as you say then why has there been so many negative comments posted about them here over the last six months? As for me 'running my mouth about how great my Broncos are' where exactly on this thread did I say that? All I insinuated is that I think this is a close, competitive series in contrast to your intentionally idiotic assessment of the proceedings thus far.

Andrew Wiens, bdunc and a few others this is Limpton who Predicted a 5-1 score for Swift Current last night and you guys especially Andrew Wiens knocked me and said basically there was not a hope in Hell that Swift would win by a score of 5-1. Well, you were right it was only 4-1. So how do you like my Prediction now? I also stated that Swift would win this series in either 5 or 6 games and I will stick with that. Hey Wiens, look me up in Swift sometime, I frequent Tim's quite often in the morning and usually wear a Swift hat and a Riders Hoodie. "GO SWIFT GO" !

Andrew Wiens said...

Hey Limpton, see how easy it is to address you when there is some sort of a name attached to your post? If you are willing to tell me where to find you in Swift then it shouldn't be such a big deal for you to take an extra 10 seconds and sign into this blog with a gmail account or something that actually identifies all your posts as belonging to you. Regarding your prediction, I have two points to make. First, as I said yesterday, I'm quite happy to be wrong about the Broncos beating the Pats by a four goal margin (maybe you disregarded that caveat). Second, if you want me to give you credit for making a prediction then you need to make it and claim it by signing into this blog with some sort of an identifier like a gmail account - and your next chance is Wednesday.
