Three wins in four days…so long you Alberta teams.

The Regina Pats carried the momentum gained throughout the week into Saturday night’s game at the Brandt Centre, surging through the Lethbridge Hurricanes 3-1 the final score.

Yes, Saturday night’s win under the orange top capped off three straight wins for the Pats over Alberta based teams.

Calgary Hitmen, Red Deer Rebels and Lethbridge Hurricanes.

MLB playoffs in full swing…we present to you, the WHL version of a three up, three down.

The Pats dawning the new white alternate jersey, lit the lamp on Saturday night on the first shot on goal, off the blade of Parker Berge. Berge’s third goal of the young campaign.

Pats forward Sam Oremba was credited with an assist, which marked his 50th career WHL point.

Regina doubled their lead 9:23 into the opening frame as Tye Spencer potted home a juicy rebound off the pad of Lethbridge’s net-minder Harrison Meneghin. 

From then-on, there was plenty of time for fans to refill their mini donut boxes.

Until just over five minutes remaining in regulation, Hurricanes Trae Wilkie cut the Pats lead in half.

Pats assistant captain, Braxton Whitehead, eased any tension remaining by sliding home an empty netter to go up 3-1 with under a minute to play in the third.

The product out of White City, SK, Kelton Pyne, made 19 saves on 20 shots in the win.

Carson Haynes, a 20-year-old defenceman who the Pats claimed off waivers from the Vancouver Giants, is now 3-0 as a member of the ‘Regiment’.

“It was hectic there for a couple of days,” said Haynes after Saturday’s game.

“I kind of settled in, got to know the guys, the staff, everyone is amazing here and are treating me well.”

The fans in the Queen City have been treated to some winning hockey thus far in the fall of 2023.

Regina Pats have a 6-3-1-0 record, with a date in Moose Jaw on the horizon set for Tuesday.
