CALGARY - Joel Broda and Brett Sonne both had two goals and an assist to lead the Calgary Hitmen to a 6-3 win over the Regina Pats in Western Hockey League action Wednesday night.

Carson McMillan added a goal and an assist for the Hitmen (55-7-3-1), winners of 12 straight games. Kris Foucault also scored, while defenceman Keith Seabrook chipped in with three assists.

Mitch Czibere, Alex Pym and Victor Bartley scored for the Pats (25-33-1-5), who have lost two straight games and are now five points behind both the Prince Albert Raiders and Edmonton Oil Kings for the eighth and final playoff berth in the WHL's Eastern Conference.

Calgary goalie Martin Jones had a light night in net as he made 12 saves to record his league-leading 42nd win of the season. At the other end, Linden Rowat stopped 44 of 50 shots he faced in a losing cause.

The Hitmen have one more home game left this season on Saturday night against the Kelowna Rockets. If they win, they'll have 33 victories at the Pengrowth Saddledome to tie the Swift Current Broncos (1988-89) and Seattle Thunderbirds and Kamloops Blazers (both in 1989-90) for the league record for most home-ice wins in one season.
