Pat Chat October 6th

The Week That Was
In a divisional rematch against the Prince Albert Raiders, the Pats pushed their win streak to three games by virtue of a 5-2 victory.  Braden Christoffer scored twice on the powerplay while Patrick D’Amico, Austin Wagner and Dryden Hunt also tallied in the contest.  The following evening, the Blue and White had their hands full with a testy Red Deer Rebels club.  The visitors jumped out to an early lead, but the Pats found answers as the teams traded goals to a 3-3 tie at the end of regulation.  Overtime saw Red Deer’s Presten Kopeck score his second of the game for the 4-3 Rebels win.
The Week Ahead

Friday, October 10th – Pats vs. Tri-City (7:00 p.m.)The Blue and White go Red in their first Red Friday game of the season.  The Pats bring back their popular red third jerseys which honour the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry and their 100th Anniversary.  The Pats face their first Western Conference foe as the Tri-City Americans, led by goaltender Eric Comrie, visit the Brandt Centre.  Lucky fans in attendance will receive a Pats Calendar courtesy of SaskTel.
