After a weekend sweep of the Laronge Ice Wolves, the Flin Flon Bombers will make their way to the cage to face the hottest team in the country the Nipawin Hawks.
The Hawks streak has reached 28 without a regulation loss and seem to have no signs of slowing down after a 4-2 win over Melfort on Saturday night.
Their last regulation loss came to Melfort on November the 10th, when they dropped a 2-1 decision. They are currently 11 points up on the Stangs for first in the Sherwood and 8 on Battleford for first overall and are ranked third in the country.
They will also enjoy a 10 day break after tonight's game against the Bombers.
This young Bomber squad is also playing some good hockey and have only lost twice in regulation since the Christmas break and are 5-2-2-1 in their last 10. The Maroon and White also have an OT win over Nipawin this year back on December 2nd when Calvon Boots potted the winner.
Flin Flon is also starting to get some results on the road with 7 out of 8 points in their last 4 away from the Whitney Forum. Saying that, a win at the Cage would be a tall order with the Hawks 18-1-0-2 at home so far this season.
Mike Reagan is optimistic and no question this team is playing their best hockey of the season and feel they have a chance to win on any given night with Brenden Newton between the pipes. Newton is 13-8-2-4 and the Bombers feel they would be a lot higher in the standings if he wasn't injured earlier in the season.
Flin Flon are just 1 point back of Kindersley for 8th overall and home ice in the Survivor Series, but the Klippers do have two games in hand. A win in Nipawin tonight, would go a long way in the standings and confidence department.
No matter what go's down, we will have all the action on 102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com with the Great North GM Coach's Show at 7:10 and play by play at 7:30.
