Pats end Alberta road trip by upsetting Eastern Conference’s best team

After getting beat 7-0 and 8-1 in the first two games of their three-game Alberta road trip, the Pats had a tough task in front of them Friday night as they took on the best team in the WHL’s Eastern Conference and the second best team in the league.

Thanks to four-point nights from Robbie Holmes and Riley Krane, Regina walked into Edmonton and defeated the Oil Kings 5-3 in a back-and-forth affair that wasn’t settled until Logan Nijhoff deposited his 12th of the year into an empty-net with 43 seconds remaining.

Donovan Buskey continued his stellar play as he made 36 saves for the Pats. With the win, they improve to 19-28-3-2 on the season and are home to Brandon in a Monday afternoon matinee that we will have for you on 620 CKRM starting at 2.
