The Regina Pats and Saskatoon Blades meet for the fifth time this season in Saskatoon Wednesday night.
The Pats, who have taken seven of eight points from the Blades so far this year, will be playing the last of a 5 game road trip that has seen them in five different cities over a seven day span.
With 14 games left on the season, the Pats are looking to lock down positioning for the 2017 playoffs. The club enters Wednesday night in first place in the East Division, Eastern Conference and the entire WHL. Regina needs any combination of six wins or six Moose Jaw losses to clinch a division title. The Pats are currently 13 points ahead of the Warriors with two games in hand. The Conference requires eight wins or eight Medicine Hat losses. Regina is six points ahead of the Tigers with three games in hand.
