The Regina Pats are right back at it Wednesday when they host the Kootenay Ice at the Brandt Centre.
It’s the Pats ninth game in the last 16 days.
The team has won six of those including a 7-5 victory over Kootenay last week.
The Pats take a 2-1-0-0 record against the Ice into tonight’s fourth and final meeting of the season between the two clubs.
Adam Brooks leads the Pats with seven points in the first three games while Kootenay’s Zak Zborosky also has 7 points in the season series so far.
The Pats enter the day seven points back of Moose Jaw for third in the East Division with nine games left on the regular season schedule.
The Pats need three wins or three Saskatoon losses to clinch a playoff berth for the 3rd consecutive year.
The Ice meanwhile have just 10 wins on the year and will not make the playoffs for the first time in the franchise’s history.
Puck drop from the Brandt Centre tonight is at 7 o’clock with the pre-game at 6:35 on 620 CKRM.
