Lowly Pats edge Rockets

The Kelowna Rockets dropped their second straight on their six-game East Division road trip.

Friday in Regina, the Rockets fell 4-3 to the eastern cellar-dwelling Pats.

Caiden Daley and Zach Wytinck each had a goal and an assist to pace the Pats to the victory.

Pavel Novak got the Rockets with his 11th of the season and first since returning from an eight-game suspension.

Daley tied it on a power play later in the opening period, before the Pats broke the game open with a pair of unanswered goals in the second.

Matthew Wedman pulled the Rockets to within one on a Kelowna power play then, after the Pats regained the two goal lead, Mark Liwiski again brought Kelowna to within a goal with a shorthanded marker.

The Rockets could not find the equalizer over the remaining four-and-a-half minutes.

Kelowna is 3-2 on the road trip, which closes out Saturday in Moose Jaw.

The Rockets will return home to host Vancouver Wednesday before taking their Christmas break.
