The Regina Pats finally put goals on the score sheet last night.
The only problem was their opponent scored twice as many as them.
The Lethbridge Hurricanes popped home three goals in the first period and never looked back, as they steamrolled the Pats 8-4 at the Brandt Centre Friday night.
Robbie Holmes tapped his first of the season home to make 3-1 after 20, but the Hurricanes offence kept humming along, adding another four goals in the second to make 7-1 after 40 minutes. The Pats showed some signs of life in the third, getting markers from Jake Leschyshyn, Sergei Alkhimov and Logan Nijhoff.
Pats return to the ice on Sunday, when they take on the Moose Jaw Warriors at 4:00, a game you can catch right here on 620 CKRM starting with the pre-game show at 3:35 pm.
- Sergei Alkhimov’s goal was his first as a Pat and hin the WHL.
- Jake Leschyshyn had a goal and an assist and led the Pats with eight shots on goal.
- The Pats scored their first three powerplay goals of the year in the loss
