The Regina Pats made it four straight wins Friday night with a come-from-behind 7-5 win in Saskatoon in what was Game 2 of an eight-game road trip for the team.
Jacob Wassermann’s first WHL start looked like it would be a disastrous one as he gave up three goals in the first period with the Blades adding another early in the second to take a 4-0 lead, but Regina stormed back.
Goals by Robbie Holmes and Matt Bradley early in the third tied the game. Saskatoon took a 5-4 lead, but Regina got goals from Sam Steel at 7:23, Jared Legien at 17:26 and Bradley again into an empty-net with just 17 seconds remaining to give the Pats the win and improve their record to 33-24-5-1 which combined with a Brandon loss in Lethbridge leaves the Pats five ahead of the Wheat Kings for 3rd place in the Eastern Division.
Wassermann made 24 stops to collect his first WHL win.
Regina will be right back at it on Saturday night when they tangle with the Moose Jaw Warriors at Mosaic Place in a 7 o’clock start.
