Pats - Ice Game Day Preview

Head-to-Head
The Regina Pats (4-3-1-0) match up with the Kootenay Ice (2-6-0-0) in their second meeting of the season and first in Cranbrook.  The teams’ first game saw the Pats win 5-4 in Regina.  Adam Brooks led the Blue and White with two goals in the game.  Jaedon Descheneau headed up the Kootenay attack with four points (3G, 1A).  Coming into tonight’s contest, the Pats look to get back to winning after dropping a 3-1 decision to Tri-City a week ago.  The Ice have dropped four straight, all on the road, and play their first home game since October 3rd.  This evening’s game can be heard on 620 CKRM starting at 6:35 p.m.
Lead Up: Pats’ Point Streak Snapped in 3-1 Loss to AmericansDespite opening the scoring, the Pats found themselves trailing 2-1 heading into the third period of last week’s matchup with Tri-City.  Even with plenty of chances, the Blue and White couldn’t find the tying goal against goaltender Eric Comrie who turned away 29 shots.  The visitors added some insurance in the third period to take the game 3-1.  Dryden Hunt scored the lone Pats goal while Parker Bowles, Jackson Playfair and Braden Purtill tallied for Tri-City.  Daniel Wapple held the Pats in the game, making 27 saves on the night.
On the Road AgainThe Pats head out on the first prolonged road trip of their season this week.  After playing three road games within their division, the Queen City Kids hold a record of 2-1-0-0 away from the Brandt Centre and have won two straight (Moose Jaw, Prince Albert).  Last season Regina held a 17-17-1-1 road record.  The Pats were 2-1-1 on their four game homestand.
Twenty-Year-Old TrifectaWith the Over-age deadline having passed, the Pats have locked in their three twenty-year-olds for the season.  Braden Christoffer (4G, 4A), Pavel Padakin (1G, 3A) and Patrick D’Amico (3G, 3A) represent the 1994 age group on the Pats.  Logan McVeigh was released and passed through waivers Wednesday.
Subway Super SeriesFor a second straight year, Morgan Klimchuk has been named to Team WHL for the Subway Super Series (Nov. 10/11).  The Calgary Flames’ 1st Round pick hasn’t suited up for the Pats this season after an injury during a pre-season game with the Flames.  He is not expected to be in the lineup tonight.
