Before the cows take over the Brandt Centre, the Regina Pats edged those from ‘Cowtown’ in their final home game until December 8.
With Agribition entering Evraz Place, the Pats got a needed win against Calgary before an eight-game road trip.
Nick Henry scored his first goal of the season since returning from injury. Henry batted the puck out of mid-air for the goal, which ended up being the game-winner in a 4-3 Pats victory.
Henry also added an assist on Sam Steel’s first period goal, which was a tic-tac-toe play that closed with Steel firing the puck into an empty net with the goalie out of position.
The Calgary Hitmen did make it interesting with a power-play goal midway through the third period to cut the lead to one.
The Hitmen also had a chance to tie the game with another man advantage with just seconds left but the puck went wide.
Max Paddock got the win for the Pats and they needed their young goalie to make several big saves, including a breakaway in the first few seconds of the game.
Paddock made 25 saves on the night.
Regina will start their lengthy road trip Saturday in Portland.
