October 12, 2012

Pats face off with Broncos for third time this season

Parts taken from the Regina Pats Web Site: The Pats and Broncos have already faced off twice in the young season.  The first meeting between the two featured a Pats comeback from three goals down and an eventual 4-3 overtime victory.  The second contest saw the Pats down two and nearly another comeback, but Swift Current goaltender Eetu Laurikainen came up large by stopping twelve Pat shots in the final frame to win 2-1.  The Pats come in after taking an exciting overtime game from Portland while the Broncos dropped their previous game, 2-1 to the Rebels.
