CRANBROOK, B.C. - The Kootenay Ice scored four third-period goals in a 7-3 win over the Regina Pats in WHL action on Tuesday night.

Ice opened the scoring on a disputed goal. Pats' goalie Linden Rowat made a save on a long shot and wanted to have a faceoff, but the referee said move the puck. Rowat threw it out in front of the net and Ryan Fox banged it right back in.

Ice made it 2-0 as Rowat was behind his net to playing the puck, Jesse Ismond took it away and found a wide open Andrew Bailey in the slot.

Pats got on the board as Brett Lefflers' long shot beat Nathan Lieuwen on the stick side.

Pats then tied it while shorthanded, as Matt Robertson backhand shot high on the glove side.

Regina made it 3-2 when Garrett Mitchell's wrist shot went under the arm of the Ice goalie.

Ice changed goalies as Todd Mathews replaced Lieuwen.

Ice tied it 3-3 as Tylan Stephens deflected a point shot from Ian Barteaux.

Early in the third, Ice got the game winner from Kevin King.

Pats changed goalies as Damien Ketlo replaced Rowat, but Joe Antilla made it 5-3 with a backhand deke.

Jesse Ismond made it 6-3 on a deflection, and Stephens scored his second of the night to end the scoring.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.
