In the second, the Warriors scored the lone goal at 11:46, Daniil Stepanov tipped one past Dean McNabb who was sensational in the period making 11 saves, but Regina trailed 3-0 after two.

In the third, the Warriors made it 4-0 with a powerplay goal early on. The Pats got on the board halfway through the frame, Garrett Wright a great shot from the left circle into the top corner for his seventh and it was 4-1. The Warriors added an empty netter and an even strength marker after that and took the two points in a 6-1 final.

The Pats were outshot 37-26. The powerplay went 0/3 and the penalty kill was 4/6. Dean McNabb made 31 saves.

this team has been an embarrassment this year with last night no exception. They have played most of the season with little heart, discipline or fight and mostly never ready to go. Our HC lead the Blades to a horrible season in his only other coaching gig and now he's done that here. Overrated and ineffective are the only two words that apply. When the Silvertips came into the WHL as an expansion team they were a rag tag bunch that won their way to the WHL final. Now they have won three pennants in a row. That's what good coaching will do for you. This season can't be laid at the feet of the players. It's far more than that.

Dave Struch needs to put himself in the penalty box ala former Pats head coach Greg Pilling. In Struch's case it would be permanent. Bring back Malcolm Cameron as Pats head coach. Cameron would be a excellent choice to lead a young Regina Pats hockey club.
