Nicholls scores twice to help Saskatoon Blades edge Regina Pats 3-2

REGINA - Josh Nicholls scored twice to help the Saskatoon Blades edge the host Regina Pats 3-2 in WHL action Tuesday night.

Shane McColgan scored the game-winner for Saskatoon (6-9-0) during a power play midway through the third. McColgan, a product of Manhattan Beach, Calif., and a New York Rangers pick, also had an assist on the night.

Regina (6-10-1) got both its goals from Lane Scheidl while Morgan Klimchuk picked up a pair of assists.

The Pats scored on their first shot of the game during a power play just under two minutes in. Picking up an assist was Colby Williams.

Nicholls responded for the Blades by scoring his thirteenth and fourteenth of the season in a three-minute span in the second.

Midway through the third Scheidl tied things up 2-2 with his second of the night after converting a nice feed from Minnesota Wild free agent Colton Jobke.

But on the next play Regina’s Colten Mayor ran Blades goalie Andrey Makarov and on the following power play McColgan potted the game winner.

In the end each team went 1-for-5 on the power play.

Makarov (6-8-0) made 24 saves for the win while Matt Hewitt (4-6-1) turned away 32 in the loss.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
