Great win Pats...another comeback...getting used to that but against Broncs and Warriors may not work.
Oksanen playing with a lot of confidence, and great to Morriseau on the 3rd line.

Nice win by the Memorial Cup hosts Regina Pats..coming together at the right time, thanks to a very talented coaching staff..and all this is done with a rookie back-up goaltender. MJ Warriors are reeling a bit...last 10 games they are average 500 team 5/5...Pats are 7/3 last 10 games..this is gonna be a fun spring...see some of you at the Memorial Cup in Regina
