Jayden Sittler saw nearly 50 shots at the Regina Pats beat the Lethbridge Hurricanes 6-2 Saturday night at the ENMAX Centre.
The Canes opened the scoring in this game when Pavel Skumatov scored his 5th goal of the season with just 4 seconds remaining in the first period. That gave the Canes a 1-0 lead through 20 minutes of play.
In the second, Regina really ramped things up, scoring four straight goals. Adam Berg scored midway through the period to even the score at 1-1. Three minutes later the Pats took the lead for the first time, thanks to a goal by Austin Wagner, making it 2-1 Regina. Two minute after that, Regina's power play clicked for the first time when Sam Steel scored, putting the visitors ahead 3-1. Then just over a minute later another Regina goal, this time from Patrick D'Amico. Just like that the Pats jumped ahead 4-1. Lethbridge did get one more before the end of the period, when Bayden Burke scored his second of the season, cutting the lead to 4-1 through 40 minutes of play.
In the third, Regina put this one away. Former Hurricane Taylor Cooper scored against his former team making it a 5-2 game and before it was all said and done Austin Wagner scored his second of the night to give Regina a 6-2 victory.
The Canes were out shot 48-30 on the night. The Hurricanes went 0/3 on the power play and the Pats 1/6. The loss drops the Hurricanes overall record to 12-30-3-3 in 48 games. Their next action is Tuesday (Feb. 3) on the road when they take on the Oil Kings in Edmonton.
