Chandler Stephenson has 6 points to lead Regina Pats over Saskatoon Blades 6-2

REGINA - Chandler Stephenson scored twice and set up four more to lead the Regina Pats to a 6-2 win over the Saskatoon Blades in the Western Hockey League on Sunday night.

Regina (15-21-4) also got plenty of production from Morgan Klimchuk with one goal and four assists.

Rounding out the scoring for the Pats were Lane Scheidl and Kyle Burroughs, each with a goal and two assists, and Colten Mayor with one goal while goaltender Matt Hewitt made 18 saves.

Scoring for Saskatoon (19-18-1) were Darren Dietz with a goal and an assist and Matthew Pufahl.

The loss marks the fourth in a row for the Blades, who are without regular goalie Andrey Makarov. The Buffalo Sabres' draft pick is home in Russia competing in the world junior hockey championship.

The last two times these teams met was a home-and-home series earlier this month in which the Blades outscored Regina 16-0.

This time it was the Pats who poured it on, scoring five of their six goals in a 10-minute span in the second.

Stephenson, a third-round Washington Capitals pick, has four goals and four assists in his last three games since returning from a foot injury that cost him 26 games.

Regina went 4 for 7 on the power play while the Blades were 1 for 2.

Saskatoon goalie Alex Moodie made 21 saves for the loss and was relieved to start the third by Patrick Johnson, who made four saves on four shots.

Quote of the Day

My job was to get that puck and put it on net, and his job was not letting me do it. I got the best of that, but that game's over and to be honest I already forgot about it.
