Pats continue homestand against Raiders

A pair of teams with the same amount of points will square off at the Brandt Centre tonight with the Regina Pats hosting the Prince Albert Raiders.

The Pats have opened up their four-game homestand with a split. They picked up a victory against the Saskatoon Blades before the Prince George Cougar blanked the Regiment on Sunday, 4-0. The Pats penalty kill provided a positive note, successfully killing off the Cougars eight power play attempts.

Both Regina and Prince Albert are in the middle of the logjam in the Eastern Conference with the top nine teams separated by six points, the only difference between the records is the Pats have an overtime loss while the Raiders suffered a shootout loss.
