REGINA - Colten Martin scored at 2:33 of overtime and also added an assist Wednesday as the Kelowna Rockets beat the Regina Pats 3-2 in the Western Hockey League.

Brett Bulmer and Tyson Baillie also scored for Kelowna (13-16-4).

Scoring for Regina (17-14-3) were Andrew Reider and Morgan Klimchuk, who forced the extra period with 30 seconds left in regulation.

Bulmer, cut from Canada's world junior hockey championship squad earlier in the day, made a statement just 21 seconds into the game when he powered his way around Regina's Brandon Davidson and roofed a wrist shot over Adam Beukeboom.

The goal gives Bulmer 12 points in his last seven games with the Rockets.

Both teams scored pretty goals in the second.

Reider got his when he blasted a slapshot off the crossbar, jumped and batted down the rebound with his glove then took another stab at it to bury his sixth of the season.

Baillie's goal was much like Bulmer's ? he blew right around Davidson then went up top to make it 2-1.

That goal might have been the game winner but with 45 seconds remaining in the third and Regina's goalie pulled, Bulmer was called for cross-checking to give the Pats a 6-on-4 advantage.

Klimchuk forced overtime, only to have Martin win it for Kelowan with his first-ever WHL goal.

Jordan Cooke (3-2-3) made 29 saves for the win while Beukeboom turned away 24 in defeat.
