REGINA PATS ARE A POWER HOUSE WHEN SHORT HANDED 


At Prince Albert tonight, Friday, December 30th. they finished the year with a bang, winning 8-0. On their first short hand, out shot P.A. 5-0, then on the second short hand, Pats Sam Steel scores.

UPDATE: Sunday, January 1st. They have now gone 24 short handed attempts, with out allowing their opponents a goal.   Also tied a club record, had 72 shots against the P.A. goalie.

As I have handed all my 20 years of research over to Kevin Shall, he came up with the following: the Pats outshot the visiting Brandon Wheat Kings 79-27 en route to an 11-2 victory on Decmber. 9, 1979.  Rick Knickle and Ron Popplestone were in goal for Brandon that evening, when Doug Wickenheiser scored one of his team-record 89 goals and Mike Blaisdell notched a hat trick.
