 - web site Phil Andrews : - The Regina Pats hosted game 6 of their second round series with the Red Deer Rebels on Sunday. The Pats needed a win to force a seventh and deciding game on Tuesday night in Red Deer. The Rebels took game 5 on home ice on Friday with a 5-1 win on the back of a goal and an assist from Brandon Hagel, two assists from Luke Philp and 28 saves from Rylan Toth. Sean Richards provided the only offense for the Pats whose powerplay went oh for 5 in the loss. The Rebels got defenceman Colton Bobyk back from suspension for game 6 while the Pats were without forwards Adam Berg and Riley Woods due to injury.


 The Pats' pregame tradition of having a Canadian military soldier walk onto the ice with a lit torch and set a virtual fire at centre ice with the Pats logo is as good as there is in sports ANYWHERE

Game Story: - The Regina Pats struck first and they struck often getting goals from Jared McAmmond in the first, Connor Hobbs, Cole Sanford, Lane Zablocki in the second and Captain Colby Williams in the third.  For Red Deer, they could only muster one goal, which came in the first from Jake DeBrusk.  The Pats outshot the Rebels 40-21 overall including 22-4 in the second period alone.  In a series that has seen plenty of scoring on the power play, neither team could convert today.  Pats goaltender Tyler Brown turned away 20 shots for the victory.
