REGINA - Garrett Mitchell and Matt Strueby had two goals each to lead the Regina Pats to a 5-3 win over the Edmonton Oil Kings in Western Hockey League action Tuesday night.
Strueby started the scoring for Regina (11-11-3) on the power play just over two minutes in when he knocked in a rebound from a Colten Teubert point shot. Also assisting on the goal was Jordan Weal.
Weal added his second point of the period three minutes later when he put a perfect pass on Mitchell's stick from behind the net and Mitchell snapped it into the top corner to make it 2-0 Regina.
Weal now has 10 points in his last five games and 34 on the season.
The Oil Kings (8-12-6), losers in five of their last six, got in the game near the end of the first with a penalty shot after a Regina player was called for covering the puck with his glove in the crease. Czech import Tomas Vincour scored his 13th of the season on a pretty backhanded deke.
Edmonton struck again near the midway mark of the second when Logan Proulx banged in a rebound off a point shot to tie the game 2-2. But on the very next shift Proulx took a tripping penalty and Matt Delahey scored on the ensuing power play to make it 3-2 Regina.
In the third, Strueby and Mitchell added their second goals of the night. Jordan Eberle assisted on Streuby's goal to give him 13 points in his last six games and 41 on the season, good for second in league scoring behind Calgary's Brandon Kozun (43).
Tyler Hlookoff added one more for Edmonton late in the third but it was too little too late for the Oil Kings.
Damien Ketlo made 28 saves for Regina. Torrie Jung stopped 29 shots for Edmonton.
