Pats bounce back to pull out a win Sunday

The Regina Pats bounced back from Saturday’s loss and pulled out a win Sunday.

The Pats downed the Everett Silvertips 6-3 with Nikita Sedov leading the way with a career-high four assists and Donovan Buskey making 36 saves on 39 shots.

In the first, Zack Smith gave the Pats a 1-0 lead at 6:36, scoring his seventh of the season on a breakaway. The Silvertips drew even at 14:20 on a goal from Cole Fonstad and it was 1-1 after one.

Riley Krane extended the lead on the second man advantage, his 11th at 2:07 and the Pats led 3-1. Everett scored on a powerplay of their own at the nine minute mark to cut the lead to 3-2 and that was the score through 40 minutes.

In the third, the Pats got an early goal from Drew Englot on a tip in front for his ninth. Forty-one seconds later, Robbie Holmes scored a beauty for his 16th, ending the night for Silvertips goaltender Dustin Wolf in a 5-1 game. Everett got a goal back with six minutes left in the third, but Regina got an empty netter from Austin Pratt with just over a minute left to round out the scoring as Regina improved its record to 13-22-3-2.

The Pats are back in action on Tuesday when they visit the Portland Winterhawks at 9 p.m. on 620 CKRM.
