After beating the Swift Current Broncos 3-2 in overtime on home ice Friday night, the Broncos turned the tables on the Regina Pats Saturday night at the Credit Union I-Plex as both teams wrapped up the regular season.
Tyler Steenburgen’s 47th goal of the year gave the Broncos a 3-2 overtime win ending a seven-game win streak Regina had.
The Pats, who finish the season with a record of 40-25-6-1, played Game 72 without players like Sam Steel, Josh Mahura, Cam Hebig, and Max Paddock as head coach John Paddock decided to give them the night off so they would be ready to go for Game 1 of their first round best-of-seven Eastern Conference series against the Broncos.
That game will go Friday in Swift Current with Game 2 on Saturday. The series will then switch to Regina for Game 3 on Monday and Game 4 on Wednesday.
