KAMLOOPS - Max Paddock made 33 saves and the Regina Pats picked up their first win of their West coast road trip Tuesday, 3-2 in Kamloops over the Blazers.

The Blazers opened the scoring at 3:46 of the first, Zane Franklin finished off a pretty pass from Orrin Centazzo and it was 1-0 after one.

In the second, Marco Creta tied the game for the Pats with his second of the year at the 5:07 mark. It stayed 1-1 until late in the frame, when Jake Leschyshyn forced a turnover in the offensive zone and set up Nick Henry back door for his 12th and the Pats led 2-1 after two.

In the third, Riley Krane jammed home a rebound for his third and the Pats led 3-1. Kamloops got one back with just over six minutes left, but Max Paddock shut the door from there and the Pats won 3-2.

The Pats were outshot 35-31 in the win. The powerplay was 0/3 and the penalty kill went 3/3.

Nick Henry led the offence with a goal and an assist, while Max Paddock made 33 saves.
