There were no goals scored in the second, and then Regina tied it in the third period on a goal from Zach Cain.

The game went to a shootout. Of the four Stars shooters in that session, only Heintz was able to put the puck into the net. That would be enough, as Stars goaltender Ethan Hein stopped all four Pat Canadians shots in the shootout to secure the 2-1 win. Overall, Hein stopped 42 of 43 shots for the victory.

Next up is a trip to Hillmond Redden Arena for a game with the Notre Dame Hounds on Saturday. Their next home action is Sunday against Prince Albert.
