Bombers Host Terriers

The Flin Flon Bombers are back on the ice tonight after a 5 day break and will host the Yorkton Terriers at the Whitney Forum.

 

A lot can change in a month and it is hard to believe that both these teams could be playing in the Survivor Series.

 

Entering play tonight Flin Flon is 31-19-1-2 and are 7th overall, and are 3 points behind Battleford for 6th and 5 points behind Melfort for fifth. Both the Mustangs and Stars have a game in hand.

 

Yorkton is 28-24-1 and are 8th overall, 8 points behind the Bombers and both teams have played 53 games.

 

February has not been kind to the Bombers who are 2-6 with their two wins against the league's bottom end teams in Weyburn and Laronge.

 

Yorkton who had a disasterous January,  are picking things up going 5-5 in their last 10 and are fresh off a 9-3 dismantling of Laronge on Wednesday.

 

It is always a lot of fun to watch these two teams go head to head with no shortage of offense as these are the best two offensive clubs in the league.

 

Yorkton has scored the most goals in the SJHL with 222, and Flin Flon is right behind at 219.

 

In the head to head meetings, Yorkton leads the season series 3 games to 2 out scoring the Bombers 25-22.

 

Flin Flon is still banged up on the back end and rumour has it that Tyler Higgins may be back in uniform tonight. Calvon Boots,  a finalist for SJHL Defenseman Of The Year is not expected back for a few more weeks.

 

There are a lot of special events taking place tonight including First Responders Appreciation Night as we pay tribute to the Flin Flon RCMP, Firemen and Ambulance with a special pre game ceremony.

 

The Novice kids from Flin Flon Minor Hockey will also be doing a skate drive for The Pas Minor Hockey player, Ryder Armstrong who was diagnosed with a serious illness. Players and parents will be collecting donations on his behalf.

 

Flin Flon has 5 games remaining in the regular season, 4 at the Whitney Forum including tonight's game against Yorkton. Don't forget to bring your radios and moblie devices as we are back on the air with the Great North GM Coach's Show at 7:10 and play by play at 7:30.
