The Regina Pats fell 6-3 in Kent, Washington to the Seattle Thunderbirds last night.
Regina opened the scoring on a 5 on 3 powerplay when Sam Steel scored from the slot for his eighth of the season. Seattle got a tying goal four minutes later and it was 1-1 after 1.
Zach Andrusiak would score twice in the second for Seattle, Cale Fleury one for Regina and it was 3-2 Thunderbirds heading to the third.
22 seconds in, Sam Steel scored on a wraparound for his second of the night and ninth of the season to tie the game 3-3.
However the T-Birds got the eventual game winner with eight minutes left, added another on the powerplay and an empty netter in the final minutes to make it 6-3 and that was the final score.
Seattle outshot the Pats 40-36, the Regina powerplay was one for three and the penalty kill two for four.
Sam Steel, Cale Fleury and Josh Mahura led the team with two point nights while Tyler Brown made 34 saves.
