REGINA - Jordan Eberle had two goals and an assist to lead the Regina Pats to a 4-1 victory over the Lethbridge Hurricanes in the Western Hockey League Saturday night.

The win ends a three game losing streak for the Pats (5-6-1) while the loss leaves Lethbridge (4-8-1) at the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings.

Regina, sporting pink-trimmed jerseys as part of Breast Cancer Awareness month, opened the scoring with a power play goal from Colten Teubert midway through the first period.

The Hurricanes added their own power-play marker two minutes later with Eric Mestery's first of the season.

In the second, Regina struck again on the power play for the eventual game-winner when Eberle converted two nice feeds from Brandon Davidson and Matt Delahey during a two-man advantage.

Eberle and Delahey teamed up for another pretty goal in the third. After batting Delahey's rink-wide pass out of the air and flat onto the ice, Eberle stepped over the blueline and snapped it in off the crossbar over former teammate Linden Rowat's shoulder.

Rowat, holder of the Pats club record with 11 shutouts (regular season and playoffs), was sent to Lethbridge in late September to even out Regina's overage situation.

In the late minutes of the third Matt Strueby added one more for Regina, a power play goal set up by Eberle and Jordan Weal.

Earning the win for Regina and making 33 stops was Damien Ketlo. Rowat stopped 26 shots.
