The Pats and Rebels met once earlier this season in Regina with the Pats taking the first meeting on the strength of Chandler Stephenson’s goal with only a few seconds left on the clock to win 3-2. Both penalty kills came up big with the Rebels fending off eight Pats advantages and the Pats killing six Rebel advantages. The Pats come in after wrapping up their home stand with a loss while the Rebels come in having taken three of four points in a home and home with Kootenay. Tonight’s game can be heard on 620 CKRM with the Press Box Sports Bar Pre-Game Show starting at 6:35.
Lead Up: Pats Fall to Americans
The Pats found themselves fighting back against the Americans all night in a game that saw the Blue and White even up the contest three times. They wouldn’t be able to do it a fourth, though, as the Americans scored twice with the Pats net empty to wrap up the contest. Matt Hewitt picked up second star honours, making 36 saves in the loss.
Colten Mayor and Stephen Hak return to face their former team in the Rebels just days after being traded to the Pats. Mayor was one of the Rebels’ goal scorers in their previous meeting with the Pats. For the Rebels, former Pat Brandon Underwood faces off against his former team for the second time.
The Pats need someone to step up in the coming weeks as Chandler Stephenson suffered an injury in their last game against Tri-City and will be out of the lineup for an extended period.
