The Flin Flon Bombers snapped a three game losing streak in a big way by scoring seven times to upend the Notre Dame Hounds 7-1 Friday night.
Brett Boehm scored his 6th, 7th and 8th of the season for the first Bomber hat trick of the year. AJ Kapchek scored his first 2 SJ goals, with singles from Blair his 6th and Chartrand picking up his first.
The Bombers fired 59 shots on net and chased Notre Dame starter Brett Soles from the net with only a couple of minutes remaining. It looked like a mercy pull from Head Coach and GM Kevin White.
The Bombers were 2 for 4 on the power play, while the Hounds were 0 for 4.
Flin Flon's record stands at 6-6. They remain third in the Sherwood Division, one point behind Melfort for second and six points behind the first place Ice Wolves. The Bombers have one game in hand on both teams.
The Bombers get back on the road Tuesday and Wednesday when they face a couple of familliar foes in the Nipawin Hawks and Humboldt Broncos.
The Hawks beat the Bombers in their only matchup at the Forum back on September the 28th 4-3. This will be the first meeting with the Broncos since Humboldt eliminated Flin Flon from the Sherwood final last spring.
Nipawin is in fourth spot in the Sherwood with a record of: 4-7-0-2- good for 10 points , two points behind Flin Flon for third. Flin Flon has a game in hand.
The Broncos got out of the gate a little slow, but are picking things up, winners of four in a row. Humboldt is 8-6 in the new Kramer Division. They trail the front running Kindersley Klippers by two points for first place in the division. Kindersley does have two games in hand.
Both of these games will be broadcast on CFAR-590 and flinflononline.com, with the Murray GM Coach's Show starting things off at 8:10.
Next home games for the Bombers will be Friday November the 8th and Saturday November the 9th when Humboldt comes to town for a weekend series.
