On a night when it looked like there was no saving the Regina Pats, Matt Hewitt did just that. The 20-year-old goaltender was brilliant in helping his team stick around early, then played an instrumental role in an unlikely finish as Regina skated to a 3-2 overtime decision versus the Portland Winterhawks before 3,505 fans at the Brandt Centre. "A win is a win and you have to be happy with that," a smiling Hewitt said after his 34-save performance. "Sometimes the hockey gods are looking down on us. Sometimes the bounces go your way. For me, I got a couple posts, I got a little lucky. I thank the hockey gods up there for that." Pats head coach Pat Con-acher saved his praise for Hewitt, who allowed just one goal in the first period despite the fact that his team was outshot 15-2. The Pats were dominated in every sense of the word - except on the scoreboard - as they took a 1-1 draw into the intermission. It stayed that way until the third period despite a huge momentum swing which saw the Pats squander a run of six straight power plays. Undaunted, Trent Ouellette gave Regina the lead with 4: 22 left in regulation, winning a race to a loose puck and cutting to the net before tucking it past goaltender Brendan Burke for a huge shorthanded goal.
