It wasn't the effort or the result the Flin Flon Bombers were hoping for last night in Melfort.
Flin Flon was looking to shake off an ugly OT loss the night before against Notre Dame. The Bombers had the Hounds down 6-3 after 2 periods, and ended up getting out shot 25-2 in the third and ended up losing 7-6 .
Head Coach and GM Mike Reagan, and a number of his players vowed they would be better at the Northern Lights Palace last night, but it did not go as planned.
George King scored his first of two on the night to open the scoring at 3;34 of the opening period in what turned out to be the game winning goal. The Mustangs went on to bury the Bombers 6-0.
Other Melfort goals were scored by: Fofonoff, Smith, Zentner and Justin Ball picked up his league leading 46th.
Final shots were actually tied at 32 a piece, but many of the Bomber shots were not in tight and I don't want to take anything away from Noah Giesbrecht, but I didn't think he was really tested.
Flin Flon played both their goalies with Gabriel Waked getting the start before getting pulled after allowing 4 goals on 14 shots. Jacob Delorme came in relief and he ended up with 16 saves on 18 shots.
With the 1 point in the weekend set, Flin Flon is 29-15-1-2 and are tied with Battleford for fourth with 61 points. Both teams have played 47 games.
The Mustangs seem to have gotten out of their fumk and have moved to with in 1 point of the Stars and Bombers. Melfort will have a chance to move up the standings as they play both Battleford and Flin Flon this week.
Humboldt, who had the weekend off are very much in contention with 59 points in 47 games.
This thing looks like it is going to go right down to the wire and the Bombers need to shake off the weekend and take care of Buisiness against Laronge Friday and the re-match with Melfort Saturday.
