Bombers Tangle With Wolves

The SJHL  regular season is quickly coming to a close and the Flin Flon Bombers are trying to get healthy for the post season.

 

Flin Flon has second overall wrapped up and now have to scoreboard watch to see who they are going to face in the opening round.

 

It looked like it would be the Estevan Bruins about a week ago, but Estevan is 9-1 in their last 10 and are now tied with Nipawin for 6th overall.

 

Both those teams could still move up depending on how Melfort and Laronge do this weekend.

 

Even though,  the last three remaining games mean nothing for the Bombers they are huge for both Laronge this weekend and Melfort on Monday.

 

Entering play tonight, the Wolves are sitting in fourth overall with 68 points, one up on Melfort and home ice advantage if these two teams do end up playing each other.

 

If Laronge sweep both games from the Bombers this weekend and Yorkton loses their last two games, the Wolves could still finish third overall.

 

It is going to be one crazy weekend with all kinds of different scenarios. I don't remember a tight year like this in the standings for a long time,  and fans should be treated to some great action on the last weekend of the regular season.

 

Flin Flon is expected to rest a lot of their regulars tonight with Jacob Delorme, Alec Malo and Cole Rafuse not expected to be in the line up.

 

The Bombers will be calling up a number of ap's including local product Jordan Pfoh who is expected to see some action tonight.

 

Pfoh is coming off an excellent season with the Norman Northstars of the Manitoba Midget Triple A league. Pfoh led his team in scoring with 50 points in 47 games.

 

Congratulations to Tristan Lemyre who was awarded the SJHL Rookie Of The Year after a dominating season that has seen him put up 61 points in 43 games including 29 goals.

 

Lemyre is the second highest scorer in the league since December the 1st, behind only Chantz Petruic of Yorkton. Lemyre also missed all of October due to an injury and accepted a scolarship to the University of Denver last month.

 

I also want to congratulate Head Coach and GM of the Laronge Ice Wolves, Kevin Kaminski who was awarded the SJHL Coach Of The Year along with Brayden Klimosko of the Battleford Stars.

 

Kaminski has guided Laronge to a 31-19-3-3 record which is already a 42 point improvement from last season. They are also going to be very dangerous for who ever they play in the playoffs.

 

Both games,  including tonight's contest from the Mel in Laronge will be broadcast on 102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com starting with the Great North GM Coach's Show at 7:10.

 

We will also broadcast the make up game from Melfort on Monday.

Bombers Beat Up On The Hounds

 

The Flin Flon Bombers shook off a couple of defensive mistakes in the first period and put together a solid second and third for a convincing 5 to 1 win over Notre Dame on Saturday night.

 

The two teams traded goals in the first with Adam Victorino sneaking a point shot past back up goalie Logan Dyck who played a very good game. There was all kinds of traffic in front of the Bomber net and Dyck never did see the shot.

 

Notre Dame got their only goal from Jarrett Penner who picked up a re-bound in front of the Bomber net and beat Cal Schell, for the Hounds only goal of the game.

 

Flin Flon then went on to score four unanswered from Ryder Richmond (4), Zach Bannister (12), Cole Rafuse(38) and Hayden Clayton (6).

 

The Bombers peppered the Hounds with 62 shots and Logan Dyck kept his team in it and was definately their best player.

 

Cal Schell played his third straight game and once again was solid making 26 saves on 27 shots. Schell has been a great addition and is 6-0-1 with a gaa of 2.56 and a save % of .913.

 

Starting goalie Jacob Delorme continues to battle the flu.

 

Flin Flon ended up going 2 for 5 on the pp, with Notre Dame finishing up 0 for 4.

 

Friday night the Bombers lost to the Estevan Bruins in OT by a score of 5 to 4. What makes this loss really sting as the Maroon and White fought back from a 4 to 1 deficit.

 

It was still a decent weekend with the Bombers grabbing three points and improving their record to : 36-13-6 with just three games remaining in the regular season.

 

They will close out the season with a home and home with Laronge this weekend and a make up game in Melfort on Monday March 2nd.

 

These won't mean anything to the Bombers in the standings but are huge games for the Wolves and Mustangs who are still battling for playoff positioning.

 

All three games will be on 102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com.

JV Basketball Zones took place in both Flin Flon and the Pas this past weekend and their were a number of exciting games.

He has 64 assists which is tops in the entire league and has found his scoring touch with a 3 and 4 goal performance in the second half of the season. The former QMJHL star has been a fan favorite for the Bomber faithful all season.

 

Cole Rafuse,  another major junior star who has a Memorial Cup ring from his time with Acadie Bathurst,  is nominated for the SGEU Most Valuable Player. Rafuse can do it all and has been one of the most consistent players in the league with 84 points in 51 games including 36 goals. Rafuse is also among the league leaders with 14 powerplay goals and is one of the best players I have seen along the wall.

Bombers Roll Over The Wings

 

It didn't take the Flin Flon Bombers long to forget about their set back against the Battleford Stars on Saturday.

 

Even with some regulars out of the line up, the Maroon and White express rolled over the Weyburn Red Wings 8 to 0.

 

Soon to be SJHL Rookie Of The Year, Tristan Lemyre led the way with a hat-trick picking up his 27th, 28th and 29th goals of the season.

 

Hayden Clayton scored a pair,  to give him 4 as a Bomber with the other goals coming from Hirst (10), Robertson (9) and Vardy who potted his second.

 

Cal Schell continue's  to play well when called upon and picked up his fifth straight win stopping all 25 shots for his first career SJHL shut out.

 

Schell told me after last night's game that he is really enjoying his time as a Bomber. "It has been good, it has been a fresh start here and I have taken advantage of a good situation and I was happy the boys could help me out and score some goals and make it a little easier on me. This was a good game for me getting some confidence in moving forward."

 

Schell is a perfect 5-0 and has really good numbers so far since coming over from the BCHL with a gaa of 2.40 and a save % of .918

 

With last night's win, Flin Flon now has officially clinched second overall with 5 games remaining in the regular season.

 

The home stand will continue this weekend against Estevan on Friday in which could be a possible first round playoff opponent.

 

Estevan sits in 8th overall, just one point behind Humboldt with two games in hand. They are coming off a big 6 to 5 OT win in Laronge last night and beat the Bombers in their last game at Affinity Place 6 to 2 back on February the 8th.

 

The Bombers will have their hands full with a team that will be looking to make a statement in what could be a possible play off preview.

Bombers And Stars Split

 

It was two totally different games this past weekend as the Flin Flon Bombers and Battleford Stars split a pair of games at the Whitney Forum.

 

Flin Flon came out flying on Friday and took it to the Stars 6 to 1. The Bombers got goals from six different players including Dane Hirst, Chase Haygarth, Donavan Houle, Alec Malo, Easton Haygarth and Mason Martin.

 

The Bomber power play was back in check going 2 for 5 and Jacob Delorme made some timely saves for his 22nd win of the season.

 

Kristian Lyon did fight the puck a little bit, but was very busy stopping 52 out of 58 shots.

 

Good teams find ways to respond after losses and that is exactly what the Stars did Saturday in the re-match with a solid 4 to 1 win.

 

Battleford came out and totally dominated the first period out shooting Flin Flon 27 to 8 and only led 2 to 1 after 1.

 

Jacob Delorme was nothing short of fantastik and was the only reason they stayed in the game.

 

No matter what the Bombers did, they just couldn't find a way to penetrate a very good defensive effort from the Stars.

 

Donavan Houle was the only Bomber to find the back of the net when he stripped the puck away from Seth Summers and went in and made a nice move on Adam Dmyterko for his 30th goal of the season.

 

Battleford got their goals from Matthias Urbanski, Kaden Boser, Mathew Fletcher and Austin Becker and Adam Dmyterko was back between the pipes making 39 saves on 40 shots and made the timely saves when he had to.

 

Jacob Delorme took the loss but was the Bomber's best player winding up with 36 saves on 39 shots. One of the Battleford goals came via the empty net.

 

With the win the Stars will now officially clinch first place overall. Flin Flon's magic number to clinch second is down to two.

 

After the weekend the Bomber record stands at 34-13-5 and they dropped 4 out of the 6 meetings against the Stars this season.

 

This is a big week for Flin Flon who will play three in a row at the Whitney Forum as they try to clinch second overalll and home ice advantage for the first two rounds of the playoffs.

 

Weyburn comes to town Wednesday, Estevan Friday and Notre Dame on Saturday.

 

102.9 CFAR and flinflononline.com will broadcast Saturday's game.

Bantam Wolves Sweep Capitals

 

The Norman Bantam Triple A Wolves hosted the Central Plains Capitals this past weekend at the Whitney Forum and played their best hockey of the year.

 

Playing at the Forum sems to agree with the Wolves who took both games 6 to 4 and 6 to 3.

 

Flin Flon's Evan Reid and Joey Lies led the way on Saturday with Reid scoring 4 goals and Lies adding 2.

 

Yesterday,  the goal scorers were Evan Reid from Flin Flon, Logan Primrose from Thompson with two, Matt O'Toole and Hutton Foster from The Pas, and Ethan Potry from Thompson.

Norman Hosts One Of The Top Teams In Manitoba

The Norman Northstars return to action this weekend as they will try and snap a 4 game losing streak.

 

It won't be easy as they will play one of the top teams in the league, with the Winnipeg Thrashers coming to trown. The Thrashers are fourth overall at 30-11.

 

The Northstars sit 12th over all at 4-38-0-1

 

Norman dropped the two earlier meetings this season by scores of 7 to 3 and 9 to 2.

 

The two games will take place this Saturday at 7:30 and Sunday at 1:30 in Thompson.

Mustangs Clip The Bombers

After reeling off 9 wins in ten games,  the Flin Flon Bombers dropped their second straight decision 3 to 2 in Melfort last night.

 

Alex Rondeau opened things up on a 5 on 3 power play to give Melfort a quick 1-0 lead. That goal would hold up til late in the second period.

 

Donavan Houle blistered a beautiful shot over Shawn Parkinson's right shoulder with just under 2 minutes left in the second to tie the score at one.

 

Melfort re-took the lead when Seth McCulloch was left alone in the slot early in the third. The Bombers would manage to tie the game for a second time when Tristan Lemyre deflected a Cole Vardy shot from the blue line.

 

That is 18 points in the last 19 games for the red hot Lemyre who scored his 26th of the year.

 

With the game looking like it may be headed to OT,  Kyle Bosch blocked a shot and was able to convert a partial break away with Cole Vardy draped all over him and scored the winning goal with less than two minutes left  on the clock.

 

This is a huge win for Melfort,  who are now tied with Laronge with 59 points for fifth overall. The Wolves got blown out in Estevan last night.

 

The Mustangs continue to have the Bombers number this year and have beaten them in 4 of the 5 meetings.

 

Shawn Parkinson was good when he had to be and he didn't have to face a lot of second or third shots. He made 27 saves for the win. His counter part Jacob Delorme was solid in suffering the loss with 28 saves on 31 shots.

 

Specialty teams were huge with the Mustangs going 1 for 3 and convertiing on their 5 on 3 while the Bombers were 0 for 3 and couldn't score on their 5 on 3.

 

Flin Flon will have to shake off this two game losing streak and get ready for the top team in the league.

 

North Battleford makes their much awaited return to the Whitney Forum this weekend for the first time since last year's playoffs.

 

Battleford leads the season series 3-1 but the Bombers did blast them in the last meeting 10 to 1.

Bombers Go 3-1 On The Road

It wasn't the way the Flin Flon Bombers wanted to wrap up their road trip on Saturday, dropping a 6 to 2 decision against the Estevan Bruins.

 

Saying that, they still played very well going 3 and 1 with a few injuries and battling the flu bug.

 

This was also the first time the Maroon and White went a combined 7-1 in the two southern road trips which is extremely difficult to do.

 

Caleb Franklin and Tristan Lemyre scored the Bomber goals with Jacob Delorme back between the pipes stopping 27 out of 32 shots in taking the loss.

 

Despite being tired and a little beat up, the Bombers still out shot the Bruins 40 to 33.

 

With the three road wins the past week, Flin Flon officially clinched a playoff spot and sit locked in  second overall at 33-11-5.

 

They will pretty much have to run the table,  if they want to catch the first place Battleford Stars who are 13 points ahead of them with the big head to head match up coming up this weekend. 

 

Flin Flon does have two games in hand and will travel to Melfort for a game this Wednesday before hosting the Stars in a pair of games, Friday and Saturday.

That would put them in the final against Souris and the Kings would win a close game 51 to 48 and they would pick up another first place finish.

Wild Finish In Melville

It looked like the Melville Millionaires were about to pull off the major upset last night against the Flin Flon Bombers at the Horizon Credit Union Centre.

 

With just over 5 minutes remaining in regulation, Zach McIntire scored to put Melville up 3 to 2,  and the way that Berk Berkeliev was playing, it looked like that score might hold.

 

Good teams find ways to win games and the Bombers swarmed the Melville goal in the final couple minutes and got rewarded with three goals.

 

Alec Malo tied the game on a penalty shot, when the Mills pushed the net off  with the puck in the crease.

 

Flin Flon kept coming and Alec Malo, the current SJHL Player Of The Week scored again, this time the winning goal with just 31 seconds remaining in the game.

 

Zach Bannister would seel it with an empty netter against his former team right off the next face off.

 

Malo was the game's first star, potting two goals for his 20th and 21st of the season. He sits second in overall scoring with 82 points in 46 games.

 

With the win, the Bombers sit at 32-10-5 and inch a little closer to first place Battleford and trail the Stars by 11 points with two games in hand and the big showdown next weekend at the Whitney Forum.

 

Flin Flon will also sweep all 4 games against the Mills and picked up their 5th straight win and second on this road trip.

 

Jacob Delorme was back between the pipes and stopped 16 of 19 shots for his 21st win of the season.

 

Berk Berkeliev did everything he could in goal for Melville stopping 41 shots and almost beat the Bombers single handilly.

 

Flin Flon will get a day off today and resume the road trip in Notre Dame tomorrow and Estevan on Saturday.

Bombers Dominate Players Of The Week

The SJHL have announced their players of the week and the Flin Flon Bombers have taken three of the four weekly awards.

 

Congratulations to; Alec Malo for winning SJHL Player Of The Week after recording 9 points in three games including 4 goals in a 6 to 4 win over Laronge on Saturday. Malo is second in league scoring with 79 points in 44 games,  including a league best 60 assists.

 

Mason Martin is the SJHL Defenseman Of The Week for the second straight week and fired 9 points in three games and is having a career season with 42 points in 44 games and has an amazing 30 power play points.

 

Tristan Lemyre is once again Rookie Of The Week, for the third time this season as he potted 6 points in three games,  and is having an incredible second half with 30 points in his last 16 games. Lemyre also just accepted a scholorship with the University of Denver.

The Kings then made it to the final losing to McGregor 79 to 73.

 

The Hapnot Queens are back on the road this weekend, heading to Hamiota.

Lethal Power Play Proves To Be Difference

 

It was the perfect ending to a successful home stand for the Flin Flon Bombers who knocked off a very good Laronge Ice Wolf club 6 to 4 at the Whitney Forum on Saturday night.

 

Following victories over Weyburn and Estevan earlier in the week, I thought the Bombers came out of the gate a bit sluggish on Saturday.

 

The Wolves struck first when Laronge's leading scorer Daylon Mannon broke in alone and tucked a puck under neath Jacob Delorme's left pad just 4 minutes into the game.

 

Flin Flon did get it into gear, taking advantage of a lot of odd man chances to due to some undiciplined penalties from the Wolves.

 

The league's best power play did not disappoint going 4 for 9 and was the difference in the game.

 

Alec Malo had the hot hand, potting 4 goals and now has 19 on the year with 3 of the 4 goals scored with the extra attacker.

 

Other Bomber goals came from Tristan Lemyre (22) and Billy Klymchuk (12). Klymchuk is really picking up his game offensively with 8 points in his last 5 games.

 

Jacob Delorme did his job once again making 32 saves on 36 shots and picked up his 20th win of the season, which is the second most in the league.

 

Laronge got a pair of goals from Daylon Mannon, Chad Mcilwain and Holden Knights.

 

Xavier Cannon took the loss,  but played well stopping 44 out of 50 and was under seige all night.

 

This was a very important win for Flin Flon who improve to 30-10-5 on the season and now lead Laronge by 10 points for the division lead with 3 games in hand.

 

The Bombers also got some more breathing room on Yorkton for second over all. Flin Flon leads the Terriers by by 9 points and have two games in hand.

 

Next up will be 4 games in 5 nights starting against Yorkton tomorrow, Melville Wednesday and Notre Dame Friday and Estevan on Saturday.

 

Our next broadcast of Bomber hockey will be from Melfort on Wednesday February the 12th.
