REGINA - Linemates Jordan Eberle, Jordan Weal and Brett Leffler combined for six points on Friday night as the Regina Pats bucked the Swift Current Broncos 6-1 in Western Hockey League action.

Regina (3-4-0-0) had a 2-0 lead before the game was six minutes old thanks to power-play goals from Brett Leffler and Matt Strueby. Killian Hutt, acquired on Monday from the Portland Winterhawks, added another goal for Regina with a minute to go in the first to give the Pats a 3-0 lead after 20 minutes.

Midway through the second, Dillon Wagner got the Broncos (2-3-0-0) on the board with his first of the season but the Pats answered back with two more, one each from Kyle Mulder and Jordan Eberle.

Eberle, who returned from the NHL's Edmonton Oilers on Monday, added another in the third to make it a 6-1 game. Eberle, Weal and Leffler have now combined for 9 goals and 15 points in their last two games.

Dawson Guhle made 23 saves for Regina, while Broncos netminder Morgan Clark allowed five goals on 27 shots in the first two periods before being replaced by Alexandre Sirard, who stopped nine of 10.
