The stage was set for a intense battle at the Civic Center. Two teams. A long history of hockey and a long standing rivalry came face to face as two teams look to fight their way to playoffs. One team, a top 5 contender; while the other attempts to grab hold of a playoff spot after a two year drought.
In a sold out building, fans wall to wall, the teams took to the ice for game 4 between the two. What would game four have in store? The Pats got on the board first, off of a too many men penatly by the home team. A high sticking call against the Pats resulted in a Dylan Hood power play goal only minutes later. The Pats would score one more before the first twenty minutes were over from Andrew Rieder. 2-1 Pats to end the first.
Second period brought on a goal a piece. Antonin Honejsek scored for the tribe. Garrett Mitchell took a nasty checking from behind penatly on Morgan Rielly, sending him to the box for 4 minutes. Shayne Neigum managed to score short handed to give the Pats a one goal lead. 3-2 Regina to end the second period.
The third period was a change of tide for the tribe. A power play goal from Dylan Hood followed by a Sam Fioretti marker made it a 4-3 game in the last few minutes. Collin Bowman ended up in the box in the dieing minutes sending the Pats on a 6-4 advantage. Thomas Heemskerk and the Warriors D managed to keep control of the game and take it 4-3.
First star of the game honors went to Dylan Hood, second star Tony Honejsek and hardest worker Andrew Johnson.
