The Pats will also wrap up a three-game road stretch, on the weekend they split their two games in Alberta. They started off with a loss in Lethbridge but followed up with an overtime win against the Hitmen in Calgary. Tye Spencer had three points (2G-1A) and Ewan Huet made 49 saves in the win.

Entering tonight, Regina is five points back behind the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference playoff race.

Saskatoon (33-9-2-3) sits on top of the Western Hockey League standings. They currently enjoy a nine-point cushion on Medicine Hat for the top spot in the Eastern Conference. The Blades are coming off an overtime win of their own, defeating the Swift Current Broncos on Sunday.
