The Regina Pats opened their four game homestand Wednesday night with a 4-0 loss to Spokane.
Once again Max Paddock was solid in goal, making 39 saves for the team while being awarded third star of the game.
Pats Assistant Coach, Brad Herauf says Paddock has been the best player on the ice the last few games.
“Four sure the last three or four games he’s been the best player on the ice for us for sure,” Herauf said after the game.
At the other end, Bailey Brkin made 35 saves for the shutout.
Pats forward Nick Henry says generating scoring chances is still a positive step forward for the team.
“Where you’re getting chances like we did, they’re going to start to go in, I think we had thirty-some shots on him, so that’s a positive and we’ll build on that tomorrow,” Henry said.
The Pats (3-7-0-0) will be back in action Saturday night when they welcome Moose Jaw (4-2-2-0) to the Brandt Centre.
Just two other games on the schedule Wednesday night, Calgary edged Saskatoon 5-4 in overtime and Victoria beat Swift Current 5-2.
