Bombers Sweep The Bruins

The Bombers looked impressive in back to back wins over the Estevan Bruins on the weekend.

 

Flin Flon was able to get the best of the team they lost that epic league final to just a few months ago.

 

The Bombers came out flying and took Friday's game 5 to 1, and held the Bruins to just one goal in a 3 to 1 win on Saturday.

 

Cole Duperreault continues to pile up the points and collected 4 points in the two games and now has 32 goals to sit second overall in the league.

 

It was nice to see Ethan Mercer pick up a goal and an assist in the win Friday,  as he has been out of the line-up for over 6 weeks with a finger injury.

 

Jeremi Tremblay continued with his fine play and picked up 3 points in the two games.

 

He set up Duperreault for a big powerplay goal on Saturday and found the back of the net twice on Friday to give him 25 goals on the season.

 

Jacob Vockler scored the game winner on Saturday  when the Bruins failed to clear a puck from the back of their net,  and Vockler grabbed the loose puck and tucked it in past Cam Hrdlicka.

 

Both goalies were fantastik as Hrdlicka kept the Bruins in both games and faced 107 shots in the two games only giving up 7 goals. one goal was scored into the empty net.

 

Harmon Laser Hume was also sharp for the Bombers and made some big saves at key times. He stopped 67 out of 69 in the two games.

 

This was a very big weekend for Flin Flon who continue to battle with several teams jockying for positioning at the top of the standings.

 

After the weekend the Bombers improve to 26-11-2-1 and are tied with Humboldt for third overall with 55 points.

 

Flin Flon sits 3 points behind Laronge for first in the Sherwood and second overall but do have 5 games in hand.

 

Estevan falls to 23-19-1-2 and are 6th overall.

 

Next up for the Bombers will be the  high flying Nipawin Hawks who make their way to the Whitney Forum this Saturday.

 

The Hawks are playing their best hockey of the season and have points in 6 of their last 8 games.

 

You can catch Saturday's game on 102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com.

 

Congratulations are also in order to Alex Von Sprecken who has committed to Nait in Edmonton for next season. Von Sprecken is in his final year of junior hockey for the Bombers and has 17 points in 37 games.
