Default DW Search/Replace Regular Expressions

I'm trying to use search and replace to remove a column from a table. This table contains 70 or 80 of these:
<td>1 </td>
<td>Schromburgkea undulata </td>
<td>semi alba</td>

<td class="pq">250</td>


The text is different in each one of them, and what I want to do is remove the third column altogether. I could simply go through and delete the third cell, in this case <td>semi alba</td>, but if I knew how to use regular expressions in the search and replace it sure would be easier. According to the Help, \w is a wildcard for alpha-numeric text. How do I use that? I would search for the above and replace with the above minus the third <td></td>
