Keith Hershmiller Photography
REGINA - The Regina Pats kicked off the final week of the season on Wednesday with a 2-0 loss to the Swift Current Broncos at the Brandt Centre.

In the first, the Broncos got the lone goal at 12:38 from Joona Kiviniemi to lead 1-0 after the opening 20 minutes.

In the second, the teams combined to put 32 shots on goal, but there were no goals and it remained 1-0 after 40 minutes.

In the third, the Broncos scored on the powerplay at 18:27 from Ethan O’Rourke to go up 2-0 and that was the final score.

The Pats and Broncos tied on the shot clock 33-33. The Regina powerplay was 0/3 while the penalty kill went 3/4.

Max Paddock made 31 saves.

What’s Next?

I get the sense that's the standard ownership are OK with. It was awful to pay money to watch. At this stage of the season players still don't know what to do, always out of position, don't know how to cover the points, never blocking shots and the list goes on and on. What have they been taught all season? Clearly not much and not enough. Brockman has his team playing much better positionally, faster, and he made us look less than bad. MJ who was supposed to fall off like we did hasn't missed a beat. They did some good things and trades over there. This season isn't about being in the Memorial Cup. There is much more going on and the big bosses better take a hard look at what's really going on. There are some smoke and mirrors here.

Lol - spoken like a true Warriors fan.

Brockman's 1st win in 19 starts and he has his Team "playing much better positionally, faster".
If you indeed were at the game you have to admit that Pats had many good scoring opportunities but no puck luck, and Broncos tender played well (1st Star) as did Paddock (2nd Star).
It's no excuse but it is the end of the season and neither team is going anywhere fast, other than the boys are getting their golf clubs shined up :))
This year was all about a start to a complete rebuild and getting some of the "bricks" in place for a good foundation for next year. Pats will be better next year for sure based on the experience gained this year. Looking forward to it.
As far as the Warriors I am hoping they give the Blades a good run but fear they don't have the horse yet.
Go Warriors!

Who said the Warriors were supposed to fall off? They have five or six studs still. A world junior defenceman!

No way they compare to either Swift or Regina.
