You can click here for my recap of game 3 and click here for video highlights on the Broncos website. Game 4 goes tonight in Swift Current with the season on the line. As Josh Dixon said it’s just one step at a time now. Every game has been winnable and the Pats have come through in the clutch. All the Broncos can do is win tonight and go from there. Hopefully Dillon Heatherington and Jake DeBrusk are good to go because those are enormous losses if they aren’t.

It’s almost another must-win situation for the Swift Current Broncos as they host the Regina Pats in game three of their first round WHL playoff series.

Regina leads the best of seven series 2-0 after 4-2 and 3-2 wins over the weekend.

“The first two games I think they outplayed us (and) they outworked us,” said Broncos defenceman Brett Lernout. “But I think all the guys we feel confident.”

“We weren’t laying the body, we weren’t playing physical and I think that has a big part in the game and has a big part in how we play.”

Game 1 Audio: Pats 4 Broncos 2

You can click here for my recap of game 1 over at Swift Current Online. I thought the Broncos played a very strong game. They outchanced and out-possessed the Pats while playing a structured defensive game. Unfortunately a couple of break downs at the end of the first period were all the opportunity Regina needed. That’s playoffs. There isn’t much room for error especially when Daniel Wapple has the kind of game that he had last night.

It’s just the first part of what should be a very good battle. No one expected this series to be a quick one. The old saying is you’re never in trouble in a series until you lose at home. Regina held serve in the first game. Now it’s on them to try to do that again. Our pre-game show is back live at 6:30pm on The Eagle 94.1 FM.

Broncos/Pats series preview audio

A great rivalry renews this weekend as the Swift Current Broncos and Regina Pats begin a WHL first round playoff series.

There has always been extra animosity between the two clubs and the games between them this season have furthered that. It’s a match-up that fans and players alike are anticipating.

“I don’t think we would have chosen another team to play in this series to start off,” said Broncos forward Glenn Gawdin. “We’ve had some pretty good battles throughout the year. We know them well and they know us. Just a team that fits in well to kind of how we play.”

The Pats earned home ice advantage by finishing second in the East Division twelve points ahead of the third place Broncos. The Pats had secured their playoff spot for a few weeks, while Swift Current had to fight down to the final game of the season to lock in their ticket to the dance.

“I think we’re going to be a better team and we’re going to grow from it,” said Broncos assistant coach Jamie Heward. “It’s been good for us to have gone down this path.”

DeBrusk WHL Player of the Week

A clutch weekend from Jake DeBrusk earned him Denny’s WHL Player of the Week honours. You can click here for my article on it and click here for a link to the official release with video. This is the latest feather in Jake’s cap this season as he has emerged as a potential first round NHL draft pick. Players start building a legacy when they deliver in clutch situations and DeBrusk did just that on what was the biggest weekend of the season to date. We saw what he could do in the playoffs last season as he scored three times and two of them were game winners. We’ll see if that clutch reputation keeps building.
