On Friday night, the Pats offence ran through the stick of Nick Henry.
The Pats forward and Colorado Avalanche pick ripped home all three of Regina’s goal in Prince George last night, but it wasn’t enough to carry them to victory, as the Pats fell to the Cougars, 5-3 in the last game of a trip through BC that saw the team win just once in six tries as their record falls to 8-17 on the season.
The Cougars had a 2-0 lead after one, following goals from Jackson Leppard and Joel Lakusta, but then the game really opened up.
Before a minute had even passed, Henry ripped his 13th home to close the gap to 2-1. Prince George responded with a goal just under two minutes later to go up 3-1. Henry’s 14th and 15th goals of the season brought the game even at three before Ethan Brown’s fifth on the year at the 11:57 mark of the second put the Cougars up for good. An empty netter in the third sealed the deal.
“It’s a broken record, the last four games has been the same thing,” said Pats bench boss Dave Struch. “We really carried the momentum throughout the 60 minutes.”
The Pats return home and are off until next Friday when they head to Manitoba to meet the Brandon Wheat Kings. The next home game for the team is Saturday, December 1 against Prince Albert.
