Kole Lind’s team-leading 13th goal of the season at 3:25 of overtime boosted the Kelowna Rockets to a 3-2 win over the Regina Pats Saturday in WHL action at Prospera Place.

After a turnover by Pats’ defenseman Connor Hobbs, Tomas Soustal set up Lind who beat Tyler Brown for the game winner.

Soutsal and Devante Stephens also scored for the Rockets (14-11-0) who bounced back from a 6-2 loss to the Victoria Royals on Tuesday night.

Michael Herringer stopped 30 shots in the Kelowna net, while Brown made 31 saves for Regina.

The Rockets return to action Wednesday night when they visit the Tri-City Americans in Kennewick, Wash.
