Jake Leschyshyn and Aaron Hyman scored for the Regina Pats, but they fell short in Kelowna Wednesday night, losing 3-2 to the Rockets.
Pats Head Coach Dave Struch, said time in the penalty box is what cost them the game.
“Our penalties killed us for sure, it’s the sole thing that lost us the game,” Struch said. “We spent the majority of the night in the offensive zone and the shots on net are not indicative of how we played,” Struch added.
“I thought we really dominated parts of that game where we’ll give some credit to their goaltending,” Struch said.
The loss drops the Pats to 8-16-0-0 on the year, they’ll finish their trip with a stop in Prince George (9-10-1-2) Friday night in a game you can hear on 620 CKRM.
