The Flin Flon Bombers were good, REAL GOOD in taking down the Laronge Ice Wolves 3-1 Wednesday night.
Newly Acquired Connor Bucsis had a game he will never forget, scoring the natural hat trick to pace the Bombers to the victory. It was Bucsis's fourth game as a Bomber.
Flin Flon took over where they left off after Tuesday's 4-0 win. The Bombers fired 50 shots at rookie netminder Tyley Fuhr, who kept the Wolves in both games. The rookie from Sherwood Park made some great saves, and he was the only reason Laronge was able to hang around.
Devin Buffalo was almost perfect again stopping 38 out of 39 shots. Buffalo leads the league in save percentige at .947.
The Bombers have been able to win 4 out of their last 5 games and are tied with Laronge for second in the Sherwood with 20 points. Nipawin is first with 22 points, but the Bombers have two games in hand.
Laronge continues to struggle with just three wins in their last eleven games.
The Bomber PK continues to get better, as they killed off eight Ice Wolve penaltys on Wednesday. Flin Flon is ranked fourth at 84%. Dillon McCombie was outstanding killing penaltys on Wednesday, which did not go unnoticed by his coach.
" Dillon was one of our best players tonight, his penalty killing was outstanding, and he was able to create a couple of excellent scoring chances." " I was very happy with how we were able to kill penaltys all night, especially that 5 on 3 late in the second period."
The Bombers will now focus their attention on the Melville Millionaires and Yorkton Terriers Saturday and Sunday on the road. Melville has the best record in the league at: 12-3-1-2 (27 points). Yorkton is second best at: 12-5-1-1(26 points).
The Bombers beat Melville back on October the 15th 7-4 right in Melville. This will be the first meeting with Yorkton this season.
Both games will be broadcast on CFAR-590 and flinflononline.com.
Flin Flon's next home game is Wednesday November the 20th against Melfort.
