A couple of power-play goals in the second period wasn’t enough, as the Regina Pats saw their winning streak end at two games, with a 4-2 loss to Swift Current Thursday night.
Pats Coach Dave Struch said they were the better team for most of the night.
“At 45 minutes tonight we were the better team,” Struch said after the game. “There’s no question, it was 2-2, and I thought we did so many good things, we built off of everything that we did for the last six periods against Prince Albert and Saskatoon,” Struch said.
However Struch also hinted at some over confidence from his group, ultimately admitting it may be what cost them the game and a chance at three wins in a row for the first time this season.
“The players gave me the best answer, they said that they thought they were better than the other team,” he said. “That’s very unfortunate because, well that was my thought as well, but that’s really what cost us the game,” Struch said.
The Pats will be right back at it Friday night at 8:00 p.m. taking on the Moose Jaw Warriors on 620 CKRM.
