It’s as simple as this for the Regina Pats.
John Paddock’s crew need a win in Game 6 of the Western Hockey League final against the Seattle Thunderbirds at the Brandt Centre on Sunday night. If they don’t, WHL Commissioner Ron Robison will present the Ed Chynoweth Cup to the Thunderbirds at game’s end and they will be off to the Mastercard Memorial Cup in Windsor, Ontario that starts Friday.
A win by Regina would force a Game 7 at the Brandt Centre Monday night.
After winning Game 3, the Pats were beaten 6-1 and 7-4 to put Seattle on the verge of its first ever WHL title.
Captain Adam Brooks has not played since Game 1 after suffering what is believed to have been a concussion, but it is hoped he may be able to play in what is a must-win game for a Pats team that had their most successful regular season in history having won 52 games.
620 CKRM will have the game for you from a sold-out Brandt Center beginning at 6.
