Red Deer will finish its four-game road trip in Saskatoon on Saturday night

Rebels 3 Pats 2

For the first time in a long-time, it wasn’t Ben King or Arshdeep Bains that nudged the Red Deer Rebels to victory.

Friday night against the Regina Pats, Red Deer got plenty of help from their supporting cast and earned a 3-2 victory at the Brandt Centre in Regina.

The win was the seventh straight victory for Red Deer and their 20th road win of the year.

Kalan Lind did most of the damage, scoring twice just 1:23 apart in the second period. Rebels defenceman Christoffer Sedoff picked up an assist on both Lind goals. King did add an assist on the first Lind goal, one that the 17-year-old winger tipped pasted Regina goalie Drew Sim.

Rebels rookie forward Talon Brigley opened the scoring late in the first, ripping a rocket high past sim. Dallon Melin picked up an assist on the goal, his sixth point in the last three games.

Stanislav Svozil tied the game early in the second for the Pats before the first of two goals from Lind.

Lind’s first goal of the night came at 11:02 of the second on the power play and his second at 12:25 when he jammed home a rebound, where Brigley also picked up a helper.

Connor Ungar shut the door from there, stopping seven of eight shots in the third, only allowing a Tye Spencer marker late and finishing with 22 saves to earn his 19th win of the year.

Three stars: Kalan Lind (1), Stanislav Svozil (2), Christoffer Sedoff (3).

The Rebels will finish their four-game road trip on Saturday night when they take on the Saskatoon Blades.
