CALGARY - Zane Jones scored twice and Victor Rask had three assists as the Calgary Hitmen downed the visiting Regina Pats 5-2 on Sunday in Western Hockey League action.

Rask's three assists extend his point streak to six games and he has five goals and six assists during his run. Since being sent back to junior from the American Hockey League's Charlotte Checkers, the native of Sweden has produced 11 goals and 29 points in 26 games.

Colten Mayor, Brady Brassart and Pavlo Padakin also scored for the Hitmen (39-17-4), who have won back-to-back contests.

Calgary's back-up goaltender Mack Shields only had to make 13 saves for the win as Teagan Sacher stopped 23 shots in a losing cause for Regina.

The Hitmen went 2 for 5 on the power play while the Pats scored once on five chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
