Reider scored early in the third with a pretty redirection of a Weal point shot.

But Lethbridge kept coming, evening things up with a goal from Ryckman, his first of the year.

Burroughs then put the Pats ahead with his first WHL goal, a tip-in similar to Reider???s second of the night.

But Sutter was also knocked down on the play and was awarded a penalty shot he made good on.
