Ya it's sad the Pats are bowing out in 2nd round, but Seattle has this WHL title all but wrapped up.

Regina Pats will be just fine taking this series in 7 games, after that_ don't know... after Jake went down, club lost a step. Watching them, they never seem to have the pivotal gun man sitting in the slot for the set up shot to the back of the net. Three forwards after always chasing the puck in the offensive zone bunched up with the Broncos dictaing the play. Good Friday, no problem for a Pats win with some adjustments in practice..
