The Regina Pats first win on home ice this season came in convincing fashion, 7-1 over Swift Current on Sunday.
The Pats, (4-11-0-0) got goals from five different skaters in the win.
Assistant coach Brad Herauf said the scoring started with a better defensive effort.
“That’s one thing we stressed to our defencemen before the game, was lets live to fight another day in our own end, lets not get hemmed in because of a soft play with the puck, if we have no play get it to the neutral zone and chase it down,” Herauf said.
For the defending league champion Broncos, the struggles continue. The loss drops Swift Current to 1-14-0-0 on the season
The Pats will continue their five game home-stand Friday night when they host the Edmonton Oil Kings.
