REGINA - Brandon Kozun had two goals and an assist to help the Calgary Hitmen knock off the Regina Pats 5-2 in Western Hockey League action Saturday night.
The win marks the third time in franchise history Calgary (50-7-3-1) has reached the 50 win milestone, while the loss is the seventh in a row for Regina (23-31-1-5). Both teams had power-play goals in the first period, Regina's coming first from Jordan Eberle and Calgary's coming from Carson McMillan. Eberle's goal marked his 30th of the season and 100th in the WHL.
With Colten Teubert in the penalty box to start the second, Calgary went ahead a minute into the period when Kozun converted great feeds from Brett Sonne and Michael Stone.
Just over a minute into the third Regina's Mitch Czibere answered back when he buried a Teubert rebound on the power play to tie the game 2-2.
Five minutes later Kozun potted his second of the night after a scramble in front for his 36th of the year and the eventual game winner.
Calgary then added two more goals to put Regina away, one a slapshot from Paul Postma and assisted by Kozun and the other a shorthanded empty netter from McMillan.
Earning the win for the Hitmen and making 27 saves was Martin Jones. Stopping 32 shots in the loss for Regina was Linden Rowat.
