In front of 1,586 fans at the Whitney Forum last night the Flin Flon Bombers rolled over the Estevan Bruins 7 to 1, and have evened up the best of 7 Canalta Cup Final at 2.
It was an absolutely electric atmosphere with the Bomber faithful out in full force to support their team once again.
Jacob Vockler scored just under 7 minutes into the opening period and the Maroon and White express never looked back.
Jaeden Mercier had a three point night including his 4th and 5th of the playoffs and Zac Smith also picked up 3 points including his 7th of the post season. Smith has 4 goals in the final alone.
The other Bomber goals came from Drew Kuzma who picked up his eighth while Ethan Antsey and Jaxon Martens both scored their first.
This was Antsey's first ever SJHL goal. Antsey came over in a trade with Cowichan Valley of the BCHL back on January the 10th,and was absoultely eladed finding the back of the net last night.
Flin Flon was able to get to Bruin starting goalie Boston Bilous who was pulled after the 5th Bomber goal. Bilous actually made some good saves once again but it wasn't his teams night.
Eric Pearce scored the lone goal for the Bruins on the power play early in the second period for his 9th of the post season.
Final shots were 43 to 25 in Flin Flon's favour. Cal Schell was good when he needed to be but didn't have as many shots to deal with like he saw in the first three games.
So now the best of 7 Canalta Cup Final is down to a best of 3 with the series tied at 2 and both clubs winning their two home games.
The Bombers will try to be the first team to win on the road as the series will shift back to Estevan and Affinity Place this Saturday. With last night's win the Bombers have guaranteed a game 6 for the Whitney Forum on Tuesday.
We are back on the air with Creighton Furniture Flin Flon Bomber Playoff Hockey on Saturday with the Great North GM Coach's Show at 7:45 and drop of the puck at 8pm Manitoba time.
