Lane Scheidl scores in OT as Regina Pats edge Portland Winterhawks 3-2

REGINA - Lane Scheidl scored the overtime winner to give the host Regina Pats a 3-2 win over the Portland Winterhawks in the Western Hockey League Tuesday night.

Trent Ouellette assisted on the winner and also scored a late third-period short-handed goal to help force the extra frame.

Adam Rossignol had the other goal for Regina (4-5-0).

Scoring for Portland (4-3-1) were Ty Rattie and Taylor Peters.

Despite being outshot 15-2 in the first period the Pats made it into the second tied with Portland 1-1.

Neither team got on the board in the second, setting up a dramatic finish.

With just under five minutes in the third and Regina's Luke Fenske in the box for tripping, Ouellete caught up with a clearing attempt and drove it in to go ahead 2-1.

Portland's Peters got the goal back just over a minute later with a big blast from the point.

Regina then managed to kill off an overtime penalty for too many men before Scheidl scored his fourth of the season from a bad angle to win the game.

Both teams were shut out on the power play with Regina going 0 for 7 and the Winterhawks failing to score on five attempts.

Pats goaltender Matt Hewitt made 34 saves for the win, while at the other end of the ice Brendan Burke stopped 21 shots.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
