The Regina Pats fell 5-1 to the Everett Silvertips (7-4-0-0) Sunday at the Brandt Centre.
The loss drops the Pats to 3-9-0-0 on the season.
Head Coach Dave Struch said penalties hurt them the most, as they found themselves shorthanded seven times throughout the game.
“Tonight’s loss, we can put it all to the penalties we took,” Struch said after the game. “It drains our energy, it keeps numerous guys on the bench because we’ve got role players, that hurt us tonight,” Struch said.
The Pats will be back in action on Friday night, when they host Medicine Hat.
