The Regina Pats fell to 0-3 on their west coast road trip Saturday night, with a 2-1 loss in Victoria.
Former Pat Tanner Sidaway scored late in the third to propel the Royals to the win.
Pats Head Coach Dave Struch, said the effort was much better than Friday night against Vancouver.
“Tonight we played a lot better,” Struch said” “Obviously our goaltending was good, I think that in the big picture our penalty kill and power play did a lot of really good things too,” Struch added.
Jake Leschyshyn scored the loan goal for the Pats with his team leading 15th of the season.
The Pats (7-15-0-0) will be back at it Tuesday in Kamloops (7-9-1-1).
