Adam Brooks' goal (pictured above) was the game winner as the Regina Pats beat the Swift Current Broncos 3-2.

While Game 1 arguably saw Daniel Wapple save the Pats bacon by making several big saves, Game 2 flattered the Broncos as the Pats were by far and away the better team.

Brooks' goal came with 13 and a half minutes to go to give Regina the lead after Swift Current tied the game at 2 in the second period on a controversial goal.

Its the first time the Pats have been up 2-0 in a series since 2000.

Can anyone tell me why the refs actually allowed Swift Current's 2nd goal?

Swifty has an older lineup and the young kids are taking it to them.

Nice to see.
