Game Night: Pats at Broncos

Notes from ReginaPats.com

Game Day - Pats & Broncos
January 21, 2011

The Regina Pats head to Swift Current tonight to take on the Broncos, puck drop at the Crediit Union I Plex tonight is 7:00pm.

Friday, January 21st (7pm) Credit Union I-Plex Regina Pats @ Swift Current Broncos

This will be the sixth time this season that the Pats and the Broncos will face each other. The Pats have won all 5 of the first meetings of the season, including all four at the Brandt Centre. The only time these two met in Swift Current was a 7-4 Pats win on October 24th.

The faces of the Swift Current Broncos:
C – Justin Dowling
The 20 year old centre is tops on the Broncos in points with 49 points and is 9th in the WHL in assists with 36.
G – Mark Friesen
The veteran 20 year old goaltender has been one of the main reasons why the Broncos are occupying the 6th seed in the Eastern Conference. He is in the WHL’s top 10 in most goaltending categories.
D – Reece Scarlett
The 17 year old defenceman is the 50th ranked North American skater on the recent NHL CSB mid-term rankings. He played in Wednesday’s CHL Home Hardware Top Prospects game in Toronto with his Team Orr winning 7-1. Scarlett is also the top defensive scorer on the Broncos with 16 points.

The Pats Story:
The Blue and white are 6-3 since coming back from the Christmas break and have crept to within striking distance of the 8th and final playoff spot. The Pats trail Prince Albert by 5 points with 3 games at hand heading into the weekend.
The Pats have been led by the goaltending of Matt Hewitt. He is 4-2 in 6 starts with a 2.72 GAA and a save percentage of .932.
The blue and white also are stellar in the shootout; winning 8 of 9 including Tuesday’s 3-2 win in Prince Albert. Jordan Weal is 8 for 9 in shootouts himself while Colin Reddin has picked up 3 shootout winners
The Pats will host the Medicine Hat Tigers on Tuesday night at the Brandt Centre.

I'm wondering if Hewitt will get into both weekend games. Both are evening game and Swift isn't that far away from Regina so he could rest up somewhat before tomorrow's game vs. Lethbridge. I wouldn't be surprised to see Ketlo for one of the games this weekend.

I'm planning on listening to the game (maybe even watching it). I will post some thoughts if I do end up having the time to sit and listen to the game.

I've been trying to think about...

how to add more content to TheBlueliner but I'm not sure what I want to add here. I keep on saying to check back in the near future but I just never get back here. I have a couple of other things going on and I hope that I have more time to focus on things that I can put here. Seeing as Twitter is my main source I'll start embedding my tweets here. Earlier in the year, Rob Vanstone did a story on me for the Leader-Post which I'll share here: As far back as 41-year-old Kevin Shaw can remember, he has been fascinated with the @WHLPats — as evidenced by his extensive collection https://t.co/UD8JrxQSwG #WHL — Regina Leader-Post (@leaderpost) February 7, 2020 Some of my regular daily Tweets include Pats Alumni and their birthdays. I usually write a small biography on each player that had birthdays. July 11th's @WHLPats alumni birthdays...
