Specialty Teams The Difference Again

The Flin Flon Bombers continued their southern road swing last night and played a solid game and ended up with the 5 to 1 win in Wilcox against the Notre Dame Hounds.


The Bombers showed the Hounds and the rest of the league how much depth they have as they were missing some key players including Carter Anderson, Adam McNutt and Riley Niven.


This would give the likes of Aiden Chow, Reid Arberry and Pierce Yakimchuk a chance to get in the lineup and they all played well and took advantage of the opportunity. 


Flin Flon continue to have the best specialty teams in the league and it showed last night with two powerplay markers and a short handed goal.


The Bomber captain Justin Lies  found the back of the net with his league leading 33rd goal and 6th short handed marker  to open the scoring just 6:34 into the game.


Anthony Piccininno scored a pair including a powerplay goal and now has 16 on the season.


New additions Jerome Gilbert scored his first as a Bomber and Tyson Smith picked up his second on the powerplay to round out the scoring.


Davis Sato scored on the powerplay for the Hounds and was the only one to beat Bomber netminder Kenny Marquart who ended up with 32 saves for his 13th win of the year.


Johan Tremblay Kau started for the Hounds and stopped 29 out of 34 in a losing cause.


The Bomers sit at 37-2-2 and an incredible 16-1-1 on the road. They will get a much needed day off today  before resuming the road trip in Weyburn tomorrow and Estevan on Saturday.


Don't forget you can catch all the action of both games right here on 102.9 CFAR and with the Great North GM Coach's Show noth nights at 6:45 and puck drop at 7. Austin Mattess will have the call.
