The Week That Was
Tuesday, October 30th – Pats 2 @ Saskatoon 3
The Pats entered the third period down 2-1 in the contest, but Lane Scheidl’s second goal of the contest evened things in the late stages.  The Pats couldn’t complete the third period comeback as Shane McColgan scored the winner just 53 seconds after Scheidl’s goal.  A late surge from the Pats couldn’t beat Andrey Makarov and the final sat 3-2 Saskatoon.

Friday, November 2nd – Pats 1 @ Calgary 4
The Pats put together a strong effort on the Pink Ice last night, but found themselves down 2-1 entering the final period of play.  The Pats pressed late and emptied the net with time winding down, but Brooks Macek pounced for two goals with Hewitt out of the cage to wrap the game up on a 4-1 score.

Saturday, November 3rd – Pats 4 @ Prince Albert 1
The Pats brought their best effort of the week against the then conference leading Raiders.  After a slow start in the first that saw the teams tied 1-1, the Pats took over the next forty minutes.  Colten Mayor got the Pats a lead heading into the third period.  In the final frame, Dyson Stevenson and Jack Rodewald tacked on two more markers in the early going and Regina cruised to the 4-1 victory.

Quote of the Week
“It gives the guys confidence. (The Raiders) are a dangerous hockey club. There’s a reason why they’re the best in the conference right now. We stuck to it. The guys kept it simple. We had some breakdowns but there was someone else to help. It wasn’t a total breakdown where we were running all over. It did happen a couple times but it was a pretty good effort all the way around.” – Head Coach Pat Conacher after the Pats victory over Prince Albert

The Week Ahead
Wednesday, November 7th – Pats vs Seattle

The Pats take on their fourth of five teams from the U.S. Division when the Thunderbirds come visit the Brandt Centre.  The Blue and White are 2-1-0-0 against the U.S. Division this season. 

Friday, November 9th – Pats at Saskatoon
After the Blades knocked off the Pats at the Brandt Centre last week, the Pats look to return the favour when they travel to the Credit Union Centre for a rematch with the Memorial Cup Hosts.

Saturday, November 10th – Pats vs Lethbridge
The Pats welcome the Hurricanes to the Brandt Centre on Military Appreciation Night.  The first meeting of the season with Lethbridge decidedly didn’t go the Pats way.  Now the Pats get set to turn the tables on the ‘Canes on home ice.  During the game, one lucky fan will have the chance to Shoot for a Car courtesy of Homes by Dundee and Capital Ford.
