December 05, 2012

Parts taken from the Regina Pats Web Site: For the third time this season, the Pats and Rebels match up against each other.  The clubs split the first two meetings of the season, Regina won at the Brandt Centre and the Rebels victorious at the Enmax Centrium.  Colton Jobke leads the Pats with three points against the Rebels this season.  At the other end of the ice, Charles Inglis led the Rebels with two goals against the Pats before being traded to Kamloops.  The Pats look to break out of a four game slide.  Meanwhile, the Rebels have been on a tear, they have won seven games in a row.  Tonight’s game can be heard on 620 CKRM starting with the Press Box Sports Bar Pre-Game Show at 6:35 p.m.
