The Regina Pats pulled out their ninth straight win of the season in Moose Jaw Thursday night to tie the franchise record set in the 2001-02 season.
The Pats traveled west on highway for the matchup against the Warriors, who are in second place in the division and were nipping on the Pats heels in the standings.
The Pats scored four power play goals in the 5-4 victory. Sam Steel notched the winner in overtime. Steel currently leads the league in points and is second in goals scored.
But it was a dazzling performance by Filip Ahl that fans should be talking about after he scored his first hat trick. The 19-year-old Swede is now the WHL’s leader in rookie scoring at 14 goals.
Dawson Leedahl also scored in the third period, while assists came from Adam Brooks, Nick Henry, Connor Hobbs (2), Sam Steel, Chase Harrison (2), Austin Wagner, Jake Leschyshyn and Sergey Zborovskiy
Despite the tight score, the Pats out shot the Warriors 51-27. They have yet to be out shot this season.
The Pats will face off against Red Deer at the Brandt Centre on Sunday before hitting the road for their extended road trip during Agribition.
