Bombers Face Ice Wolves

The Flin Flon Bombers and Laronge Ice Wolves will put the Christmas break and first half of the season behind them as they wrap up 2017 with a home and home series Saturday and Sunday.

 

Saturday's game will be at the Whitney Forum, and hopefully kids that are home from College and University that don't get a chance to watch the Bombers very often will come out in full force.

 

These are two huge games that have big playoff implications. Flin Flon occupy the last SJHL playoff spot with 24 points, which is 8 more than Laronge. Both teams have played 32 games.

 

The Ice Wolves have played the Bombers tough lately, beating them the last two times out, and with a weekend sweep could make the standings and playoff picture very interesting.

 

The Bombers did get a much needed road win in Kindersley just before the Christmas break and hopefully that will give them momentum heading into this weekend.

 

Flin Flon will also have Head Coach and GM Mike Reagan back behind the bench after his Gold medal performance in Truro at the World JR A Challenge that wrapped up December the 16th.

 

Crystopher Collin who was also on the Gold medal squad returns as well and continues to lead the team in goals with 14 and sits third in points with 23.

 

The Ice Wolves continue to tinker with their lineup and added 20 year old forward Daniel Chartrand from the OCN Blizzard in early December and he has been able to chip in offensively on a team that has really struggled to score. Chartrand has picked up 2 goals in 5 games since coming over from the MJHL.

 

I am sure that both coach's will be watching both these games very closely and deciding who will be around for the stretch drive as we are getting closer to January the 10th. If you can't get up for these games than chances are we will see players being moved.

 

Mike Reagan mentioned in our interview just after the World JR A Challenge, that there were some changes he wanted to make on his team.

 

No matter what go's down, you will have the best seat in the house as we will have both games here on 102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com including the Great North GM Coach's Show at 7:15 Saturday followed by drop of the puck at 7:30.

 

Don't forget Sunday's New Years Eve battle from Laronge will start at 6, which means we will have the Great North GM Coach's Show at 5:45.

What A Comeback

It looked like the Flin Flon Bombers were on their way to losing their 7th straight hockey game last night, but they found a way to get back in the win column against the Kindersley Klippers.

 

Kindersley jumped out to a 3-0 lead after one on goals from Cyr, Page and Thompson and seemed to be in control, but the Bombers got it together.

 

Nick Shumlanski gave the Bombers some hope when he potted his 9th of the season early in the second period, to get the deficit to 3-1 after 2.

 

What a third period, Flin Flon would add 4 more from Nate Hooper his 8th and 9th, Ethan Daniels (8) and Shumlanski added his second of the game and 10th of the year to finish the game with 4 points.

 

This would have to be described as the Bombers best road period of the season and showed how much character this young team has, who could have easilly mailed it in with the team's last game before Christmas.

 

This is just the Bomber's second road win of the season and it couldn't of come at a better time as they shook off a nasty 7 game losing streak and gave themselves a big boost heading into the holidays.

 

Maybe this will be the win that turns the Bombers season around. It is funny what one win can do.

 

Brenden Newton is starting to get comfortable back between the pipes and picked up his first win in almost 2 months. Newton stopped 26 out of 29 and held the fort allowing his team to get back in the game.

 

Justen Close was back in goal for Kindersley and he stopped 39 out of 44.

 

Flin Flon improves to 10-18-1-3 and hold onto the 10th and final playoff spot, 7 points up on Yorkton and 8 up on Laronge.

 

The Bombers will now get an  11 day break before closing out 2017 with two games against the Laronge Ice Wolves in what has to be described as two must wins.

 

Laronge has beaten Flin Flon in their last two meetings including a 5-2 win this past Friday.

 

102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com will have both broadcasts from Flin Flon Dec 30th and back in Laronge for the re-match Dec 31st.

Better Effort Same Result

The Flin Flon Bombers played their hearts out but came up a little bit short in Kindersley and dropped their 6th straight game 5-4 to the Klippers.

 

Mike Wong got the Bombers off to a good start with his second of his the season just 2:08 into the opening period.

 

Kindersley then struck for three quick goals from Peck, Ryberg and Thompson. Mason Martin would get one back for Flin Flon to make it 3-2 in favour of Kindersley after 1.

 

Rob Johnson continues to be one of Flin Flon's better offensive players since ariving from the AJHL as he would tie the game on the PP early in the second. This was Johnson's 6th goal in 11 games with the Bombers.

 

The Klippers would once again respond with Thompson and Ryberg picking up their second of the night to put Kindersley up 5-3 after 2.

 

Caleb Moretz would score late in the third period for the Bombers, but that is as close as they would get and the Klippers held on for a 5-4 win.

 

This was the third straight start for Brenden Newton who stopped 25 out of 30 shots while Billy Girard got the call for the Klippers and he stopped 25 out of 29.

 

Both teams were able to strike on the power play with the Bombers going 1 for 6 and the Klippers 2 for 6.

 

Kindersley lead the season series 2-1 and these two teams will meet for the fourth and final time tonight, 7:30 at the West Central Events Centre.

 

The Bombers need something good to happen to give them a lift heading into the holidays and have dropped 18 of their last 23 games. A big win tonight would give them a nice confidence booster especially on the road where they have just one victory this season.

 

The Bombers really miss Crystopher Collin and his 23 points, as they are missing that game breaker who can score a big goal when they really need it. Collin not only picked up  a Gold medal at the World JR A Challenge in Truro, but has also been selected to play in the CJHL Prospects game Jan 23rd in Mississauga Ontario.

 

Collin leads all rookies in the SJHL in goals with 14 and sits 6th in points with 23.

Bombers Hit Kindersley

The Flin Flon Bombers will play their final two games before the Christmas break when they hit the West Central Events Centre in Kindersley tonight and tomorrow.

 

To say the Bombers are reeling would be an under statement. Not only have the Maroon and White dropped both games on this current road trip being out scored 10-3 in the two games, but they have lost 17 of their last 22.

 

If Flin Flon is going to get in the mix for a playoff position, they will have to find some answers on the road as they continue to struggle with just 1 win in 13 games.

 

Goals have been a problem lately for this young group as they have only scored 88 in 30 games which has them ranked 8th overall, but it is their play in the last 10 games that is concerning.

 

The Bomber record is 2-8 and they have been out scored 55-23. Hopefully their day off in Saskatoon will help them re-charge their batteries and they can put together a couple of solid games.

 

Acting Head Coach Gary Childerhose says mental mistakes are killing them right now and any time they make a mistake it winds up in the back of their net.

 

Some good news for the Bombers as starting goaltender Brenden Newton is back between the pipes and has played well despite two losses to Laronge 5-2 and Battleford 5-1 on Friday and Saturday.

 

Kindersley have put together a pretty decent season at 13-13-2-2 and are one of those teams that nobody is talking about. They have knocked off all the top clubs this year and their starting goalie Justen Close is one of the best in the league.

 

Flin Flon will have to play a full 60 with little or no mistakes to beat them.

 

Congratulations to Bomber Head Coach and GM Mike Reagan who coached Canada West to a Gold medal at the World JR A Challenge in Truro Nova Scotia on Saturday with a 5-1 win over the United States. Flin Flon's Crystopher Collin and Battleford's Levi Kleiboer also represented the SJHL.

 

I caught up with Mike yesterday afternoon and you can hear that interview both today and tomorrow on 102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com starting at 3:30.

Northstars Rebound Against Kenora

After suffering a 10-1 setback against the Kenora Thistles on Friday night, it was gut check time for the Norman Northstars on Saturday.

 

Norman responded with a 5-4 shoot out win in the rematch on Saturday. Thompson's Keistin Saunders scored the shoot out winner on Norman's first shot.

 

Flin Flon's Mitchell Reid had one assist in the game and Keian Weseen made 44 saves including all three in the shootout to preserve the win.

 

This is the Northstars second win of the season and Norman will get a three week break before their next game, January the 5th and 6th against Pembina Valley.

Broncos Blast Bombers

 

It wasn't the result the Flin Flon Bombers were hoping for when they hosted the Humboldt Broncos in the final two home games before Christmas. Humboldt rolled into town and took both games 4-3 and 7-1.

 

Flin Flon played well on Friday and looked like they might get the game to OT, when they peppered the Bronco net-minder Jacob Wasserman, but they couldn't get the equalizer.

 

Bomber captain Ben Lanfermann was back in the lineup and he scored a power play goal. The other two goals came from Rob Johnson, who continues to impress every game out, especially in the faceoff circle.

 

The Bombers were disappointed with the result but not the effort and felt they had a good chance to take Saturday's rematch.

 

A bad start put Flin Flon behind the eight ball and they found themselves down 2-0 on Humboldt's first two shots of the game. Wack and Joseph found the back of the net before the game was seven minutes old.

 

Daylin Marchi would give the Bombers life when he re-directed a shot over the shoulder of Parker Tobin to make the score 2-1 Broncos.

 

It was all Humboldt after that when they erupted for 5 unanswered from Thomas, Boulet, Camrud, Patter and Schatz.

 

Colten Lancaster made his third straight start and fought the puck giving up 5 goals on 25 shots, including 4 in the first period. Nik Anderson came in relief in the second and stopped 15 out of 17.

 

Special teams were also a big part of this game with the Broncos going 2 for 8 on the PP, and they also scored two short handed goals. Flin Flon was 0 for 5.

 

Humboldt looks very solid and have their sights on the Global Agrisk Solution Division with a record of 18-9-3-2. They trail the first place Battleford Stars by 4 points.

 

The Bombers slip to 9-15-1-3 and will try to get it going on the road with four games in 5 nights to head into the Christmas break starting Friday in Laronge.

 

Laronge and Flin Flon are battling for one of the last two playoff spots, and the Ice Wolves are anything but push overs and beat the Bombers in their last meeting back on October the 20th.

 

In my opinion the head to head matchups betwen these two teams will determine that last playoff spot as they will meet 7 more times, 3 before the end of the month.

 

We won't be broadcasting this last trip before Christmas, we will be taking a break before the home and home with Laronge the 30th and 31st to close out 2017.

 

After Friday in Laronge the Bombers travel to Battleford Saturday, and Kindersley Monday and Tuesday.

Wolves Beat Central Plains

It was a good end to the road trip for the Norman Bantam AAA Wolves who salvaged a win yesterday with a 6-5 win over Central Plains.

 

The Pas's Keilan Holland led the way with the hat-trick, with singles coming from Justin Lies, Chase Bertholet and Conroy Halcrow.

 

The Wolves played 4 games over the weekend and lost in a shoot out 9-8 to Interlake and also lost 7-0 to the Winnipeg Sharks and 9-3 to Central Plains.

 

Norman's record will slip to 5-16-0-0-1. Congratulations to Keilan Holland, Justin Lies, Chase Berttholet and Carter Anderson who all got invited to play for team North at the Manitoba Winter Games coming up in March in Thompson.

 

Norman will host Yellowhead this weekend in the Pas.

 

 

The Norman Northstars dropped all three games on their road trip including two games to Yellowhead 8-2 and 9-2. They also lost to Southwest on Friday 4-2.

 

Flin Flon's Mitchell Reid scored three of the team's 6 goals on the weekend and he leads the club with 12 and sits third in points with 18. Jordan Pfoh had an assist on Sunday.

 

The Northstars are back at home and will host Kenora Friday and Saturday.

The Bombers beat Thompson 6-5, crushed Norway House 11-0 and tied Cross Lake 5-5 to go unbeaten in the round robin.

 

This would put the Bombers in the final once again against Thompson and they ended up winning the final and the tournament 7-4.

 

Morgan Daneliuk led the way with a pair of goals with singles coming from Magnus Pearson, Colten Tetoff, Austin McLean, Colby Hnidy and Blake Alexander.

Hawks Gain Revenge

The Flin Flon Bombers were hoping to carry their momentum from Saturday's dramatic overtime win against Nipawin into last night's rematch at the Cage.

 

The Nipawin Hawks had other ideas and struck twice before the game was even four minutes old. Daven Smith and Jake Tremblay were able to get to Bomber netminder Colten Lancaster early and controlled the game from beginning to end.

 

With a 2-0 lead in the second,  the Hawks struck twice more on a pair of goals from vetern forward Michael Grant and put the Bombers in a big hole 4-0 after two.

 

Nipawin put the icing on the cake and made it 5-0 early in the third, when newly acquired Christian Bosa scored right off the faceoff for his first in a Hawk uniform.

 

The Bombers did get one to spoil Jake Anthony's shut out bid when Calvon Boots would score his second in as many games,  firing a nice shot from the high slot for his 7th of the year mid-way through the final period.

 

Nipawin rolled to the 5-1 win and remain very good at home with their 11th win in 13 games. The Bomber road woes continue and are now 1-9-0-1 away from the Whitney Forum.

 

Final shots were 34-24 in favour of Nipawin and the two teams were a combined 0 for 13 on the PP.

 

The Bombers go back to work this weekend when they host the Humboldt Broncos in a pair of games Friday and Saturday. The Broncos will be a good test with their 37 points so far this season as they are battling with Battleford and Notre Dame in a very tough Olympic Buildings Division.

 

Humboldt won the only encounter 6-5 back on October the 11th in Humboldt. 102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com will have Saturday's broadcast.

 

Congratulations to Flin Flon's Crystopher Collin on being selected one of two SJHL'ers  to make Canada West for the upcoming World JR.A Challenge coached by Bomber bench boss Mike Reagan.

 

Collin is having a great season with 23 points in 24 games including 14 goals. Battlefords defenseman Levi Kleiboer was the other player selected.

 

The weekend set will be the Bombers final two home games before Christmas, so let's have some big crowds out before Flin Flon go's on their big road trip to hit the Christmas break.

Lancaster Solid In Bomber Debut

 

Some new faces seemed to be the spark the Bombers needed to end a two game losing streak against the Nipawin Hawks at the Whitney Forum on Saturday.

 

Colten Lancaster who was just picked up from Port Alberni of the BCHL, was solid in his SJHL debut stopping  40 out of 43 Nipawin shots including 19 in a busy second period as the Bombers picked up a much needed win in OT,  4-3.

 

Daylan Marchi opened the scoring for the Bombers when he scored just 1:52 into the opening period on Northland Ford Teddy Bear toss night. Teddy bears and lots of other stuffed animals littered the ice in one of the most successful promotions that Northland Ford has seen in the last 5 years after the first period goal.

 

After all the toys got cleaned up, Flin Flon kept the momentum going when Nate Hooper pocketed his 6th of the year on the powerplay to put the Bombers up early 2-0.

 

Nipawin answered before the first was done when Kenzie Arnold found the back of the net on a strange angle in front of the Bomber net.

 

Flin Flon carried a 2-1 lead into the second period but it didn't hold up for long as Brandon Arnold picked up his league leading 20th of the year, when the Bombers couldn't get the puck out of their zone.

 

All even in the third, the youg Bomber squad never stopped working and got rewarded with the lead one more time when Ethan Daniels beat a screened Jake Anthony to put the Maroon and White up 3-2.

 

Nipawin tied it once again when veteran Chad McCartney converted a nice feed from Lenchyshyn and Arnold. This was Lenchyshyn's third assist of the game.

 

The Bombers had a lot of good chances to win it in regulation but Jake Anthony who looked shaky early, was tough to beat the second and third periods and made a lot of good saves.

 

So Flin Flon would have to try and do something they haven't been able to do all season and that is win a game in extra time. The Bombers killed a Hawk powerplay early in overtime and seemed to match up well 3 on 3.

 

Nate Hooper made a perfect drop pass along the boards and Calvon Boots grabbed the loose puck and went in alone on Jake Allen and shot the puck right off the post in the top left corner for the win.

 

Defenseman Alex Lindstrom made his Bomber debut and he looked very good at both ends of the ice and lookes like he could be the quarterback they were looking for to run the powerplay.

 

A much needed win for the Bombers who snap a 2 game losing streak and beat the Hawks for the first time this season. Flin Flon will improve to 9-12-1-3 on the year and give themselves some more breathing room over Laronge for the final playoff spot by 8 points.

 

It won't take long for the rivalry to resume as these two teams will collide once more at the Cage in Nipawin tomorrow. We hit the air with the Great North GM  Coach's Show at 7:15 and play by play at 7:30. Another new face, Jordan Funk, who the Bombers got from Kindersley in a trade on December the 1st will make his debut tomorrow. Gary Childerhose will continue to manage the bench with Mike Reagan in Calgary for Canada West.

Northstars Power To Their First Victory

Well it was a reason to celebrate as the Norman Northstars finally got that first elusive win of the season on Saturday.

 

After dropping an 8-5 game to Central Plains on Friday, Norman built up a quick 3-0 lead on Saturday and never looked back with the 6-5 win.

 

It was a great weekend for Flin Flon's Mitchell Reid who had a 4 point weekend including two goals. Jordan Pfoh also played well adding 3 points, 1 goal and 2 assists. AP Sean Yaworski added an assist.

 

Norman will try to build on their first win of the year when they hit the road for three on the weekend, including a game against Southwest Friday and two against Yellowhead Saturday and Sunday.

 

The Norman Bantam  Wolves split a pair of games with the Southwest Cougars on the weekend winning 4-3 on Saturday, but took a tough loss 12-1 on Sunday. Flin Flon's Justin Lies led the way with 3 goals in the two games and Oden Church picked up the win in goal Saturday.

 

The Wolves hit the road this weekend with two games against East End and Portage.
