In front of a crowd just shy of 300, the Flin Flon Bombers used a good third period to power themselves to a 5-1 victory over the MJHL'S Swan Valley Stampeders last night at the Whitney Forum.
Daylan Marchi opened up the scoring 7:10 into the opening period, and that goal held up til Nate Hooper made it 2-0 mid way through the second period.
After the Stamps Cole Chicoine cut the deficit to 2-1, the Bombers pulled away with three straight goals, with two courtesy of Donavan Houle who was flying all over the ice hitting everything in sight.
The other Flin Flon goal came courtesy of newly acquired Jessie Young. Young came over in a trade with the Humboldt Broncos for Michael Wong.
Final shots were 48 to 37 in favour of the Bombers who used three different goalies. Local product Jeremy Dutcawich stopped all 8 shots he faced. Dutcawich has yet to give up a goal the entire pre-season.
Hunter Young played the second, stopping 16 out of 17 shots, while veteran Pierce Diamond stopped all 15 shots he faced in the third period.
Michael Davis went the distance for the Stampeders, playing very well stopping 43 out of 48, and was the reason the Stamps stayed in the game.
The Bombers finished up 2 for 6on the PP, while the Stamps were 0 for 4.
With last night's win the Bombers improve to 3-0 in the pre-season out scoring their opponents 23-4. Flin Flon will play their final pre season game tonight, when the defending SJHL Champion Nipawin Hawks make their way to town. Game time is 7:30.
