1973-1974 Regina Pats

Under the guidance of Head Coach Bob Turner, the Regina Pats put up a 43-14-11 record in the 1973-74 regular season and advanced to the Memorial Cup beating the rival Saskatoon Blades, Swift Current Broncos and Calgary Centennials.

The Memorial Cup final was a rematch against the Quebec Remparts. The Pats trailed 3-0 near the 17-minute mark of the opening frame before Clark Gillies' goal started the Regina comeback. Trailing 3-1 going into the middle period, Turner walked into the dressing room and Dennis Sobchuk got up and said, "You do not have to say a word, we're going to win this game." Turner turned around and walked out. They went on and outshot Marc Picard's Remparts 22-4 in the second period and scored four straight goals. They went on to win the game 7-4 and were crowned the Memorial Cup champions.
