The Medicine Hat Tigers jumped out into an early 3-0 lead, and managed to take an 8-5 win over the Regina Pats in a battle of division leaders at the Brandt Centre on Friday night.
Regina managed to tie the game at 5 on Dawson Leedahl’s goal in the 3rd period, but Stephen Owre’s second goal of the game followed by two others by Zach Fischer gave the Tigers the victory
Sam Steel had a four point night for Regina giving him a league-leading 80 on the season.
Regina will be in Swift Current Saturday night in a 7 o’clock start before returning to the Brandt Centre Sunday afternoon for a game against Nolan Patrick and the Brandon Wheat Kings that starts at 4. Patrick was named the top-ranked player by NHL Central Scouting earlier this week.
Both games can be heard on 620 CKRM.
