How do you extract a field value with regex?

Communicator

Hello,

I have an event that looks like :

> <18> 20/02/19 22:23:59 : Maintenance counter "Digital Materials Mode" Value is: 84 hours.

i need to extract the Maintenance counter type (the string between ""), the value and the value type (in the example its hours, can be minutes, days, etc)

The maintenance counter type can be 2 words, 3, 4, etc..

I tried this regex, but it is returning me only events with maintenance counter type that contains 3 words :

index="emea_pj" "Maintenance counter" | rex field=_raw "(?ms)^(?:[^ \\n]* ){6}(?P<MaintenanceCounter>\"\\w+\\s+\\w+\\s+\\w+\")" 

How can I achieve my goal?

thanks

| makemv delim=";;;" data
| mvexpand data
| table data
| rename COMMENT as "above generates fake results, belew is your solution" 
| rex field=data "(?<timestamp>\d{2}\/\d{2}\/\d{2}\s\d{2}:\d{2}:\d{2})\s\:\sMaintenance\scounter\s\"(?<counter>[^\"]+)\"\sValue\sis\:\s(?<value>\d+)\s(?<value_counter>[^\.]+)"

when running the rex its returning result but if im running it with table it showing no results

index="emea_pj" "Maintenance counter" |SerialNumber| rex field=data "(?\d{2}\/\d{2}\/\d{2}\s\d{2}:\d{2}:\d{2})\s:\sMaintenance\scounter\s\"(?[^\"]+)\"\sValue\sis:\s(?\d+)\s(?[^.]+)" |table data
