ICE Continue Push for Home ICE Advantage in Regina.
The ICE and Pats will meet up two times in the final six games of the season. The ICE have had the Pats number so far this season collecting four wins in the four meetings so far. Two of the meetings have gone to overtime where the ICE picked up a 3-2 OT win when Peyton Krebs scored the winner in Winnipeg. The other meeting went down to a shootout in Regina and the ICE came out victorious in a 5-4 game.
The ICE come into this one winning three straight games last weekend picking up six of a possible six points. The wins came over Moose Jaw twice as the two teams played a home and home series where the ICE outscored the Warriors 9-2 over that span. On Sunday night the ICE skated away with a 3-0 victory over the East Division leading Prince Albert Raiders.
The ICE look to continue what they have built over the last three games, giving up only two goals and keeping their record over the last 10 games to 5-5-0-0 and have themselves sitting in third place in the East Division. The Pas are looking to right their record over the last 10 games as it sits at 2-5-3-0.

LAST GAME - 3-0 WIN OVER PRINCE ALBERT: The Prince Albert Raiders were in town for an Eastern Division clash with the ICE. The Raiders started the day first in the division as the ICE were looking to close the gap between the teams.
It was a scoreless first frame, as both teams had multiple chances but both goalies came up big for their respective teams. Liam Hughes made 11 saves for the ICE in the first as his counterpart Carter Serhyenko made 9 for the Raiders. Each team had one power-play opportunity in the frame.
The second period was more of the same with both goalies keeping their shutout streak alive as the ICE out-shot the Raiders 10-9 in the period.
The ICE finally broke the deadlock in the third period as Peyton Krebs sniped his 12th of the season over the right shoulder of Serhyenko. Isaac Johnson would add an insurance goal as well as an empty netter to lead the ICE to a 3-0 victory, with Liam Hughes making 34 saves for his second shutout of the season.
