The Regina Pats have a tall task in front of them Saturday night as they start a marathon road trip—one that will last eight games and not see them back at the Brandt Centre until December 8
That trip begins in Portland against a Winterhawks team that is tied for first in the US Division with Tri-Cities thanks to a five-game win streak.
The two teams only play once a season, but games against Portland have not been kind to the Pats as they haven’t beaten them since 2013.
The Pats go into the game sporting a mark of 12-8-2 which leaves them eight back of first place Moose Jaw in the Eastern Division.
620 CKRM has the game starting with the pre-game show at 7:35 followed by the play-by-play at 8.
