Bombers 4 Hawks 0

The Flin Flon Bombers put in a gritty effort and picked up their biggest win  of the season in the process, going into Nipawin and shutting out the Hawks 4-0 last night.

 

I was mentioning to Mike Reagan on the CFAR Post Game Show  last night that this is the first time I can remember a Bomber team going into Nipawin and pitching a shut out.

 

Flin Flon out hit, out worked the Hawks  and capitalized on their opportunities en route to their 8th win of the season.

 

The red hot Alex Smith opened up the scoring at 14:04 of the second period, in what turned out to be the winning goal.

 

The Bombers had just killed 3 consecutive Hawk powerplays and Smith took a pass from Kocur and wired it top shelf to beat Kristian Stead. It is Smith's team leading 13th of the year, to go along with 2 assists to give him 25 points on the season.

 

Other Bomber goals came from: St.Onge (3), Kocur (12) and Switzer(9).

 

Flin Flon's penalty killing was awesome, stopping all 9 Hawk powerplay chances and scoring a short handed goal as well. Switzer scored the prettiest goal of the night when he took a picture perfect pass from Mason Etter, and put it perfectly right underneath the cross bar.

 

This made it 3-0 and really put the Bombers in command of the game.

 

With the win the Bombers improve to: 8-10-0-4 and are 4 points behind the red hot Ice Wolves who are unbeaten in their last 9. These two will meet for the first time this season next Tuesday in Laronge.

 

The Bombers will now focus their attention on the league leading Battleford North Stars who come to town for a pair of games this weekend. Flin Flon picked up their first win of the season blasting the Stars 8-4 back on October the 3rd. So you know that will be on the Stars mind when they come to the Whitney Forum for the final time Friday and Saturday.

 

102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com will have the broadcast Saturday.

 

The Bombers made some moves these past few days. 

 

First they acquired 1995 born defenseman Pierre-Luc Morin (Ste-Helene-de-Kamouraska, QC) from the Drayton Valley Thunder of the AJHL in exchange for future considerations.  Morin suited up for 11 games with the Thunder picking up two assists.  The 6’0, 180 pounder was teammates with newly acquired Jason Lavallee with the Sorel-Tracy Rebelles of the Quebec College Hockey League where he played three seasons totaling 46 points (9g, 37a) in 100 games.

 

Next the Bombers moved 1996 born Jason Cohan (North Vancouver, BC) to the Winkler Flyers of the MJH L in exchange for a Player Development Fee.  Cohan split last season between the Tri-Town Thunder of the PJHL and the Bombers where he had three assists in 19 games along with14 penalty minutes for Flin Flon.  This year he had another three assists in 16 games along with 39 penalty minutes.

 

Cohan will join former Bomber goalie Connor Slipp who was traded to Winkler late last month.
