The Regina Pats can’t find a way to put all three periods together.
After taking a 3-0 lead into the dressing room after 20 minutes, the Pats couldn’t maintain the lead as they watched the Edmonton Oil Kings take a 5-3 win out of the Brandt Centre on Tuesday night to hand Regina its 7th straight loss dropping their record to 1-7
The Oil Kings closed the gap to 3-2 after 40 minutes and then exploded for three in the third with Vladimir Allstrov and Ethan McIndoe scoring in the first 89 seconds of the final frame to turn a one-goal deficit into a lead. Dylan Guenther added some insurance midway through the final period. After being outshot 11-7 in the first, Edmonton came back to outscore Regina 32-7 in the final two periods.
Kyle Walker (pictured) got the Pats going when he beat Edmonton goalie Sebastian Kossa four minutes into the game. The goal was Regina’s first in 175 minutes of hockey.
The Vancouver Giants will be in Saturday with Lethbridge in town Sunday.
