Season Series:  Season series tied 2-2.

Team Scope:

Ice Wolves:  The once powerful Ice Wolves had an off 2012-13 season.  After winning back to back SJHL Championships in 2010 and 2011, La Ronge is fighting for their playoff lives this year.  Currently they are sitting in the fifth and final spot but are tied with the Melfort Mustangs for the final Survivor Series spot.  The one thing they do boast is Flin Flon’s number again.  Despite two spots in the standings and 23 points difference, they hold a split the Bombers this season.  The last meeting between these two was the first game after the Christmas break when the Wolves edged the Bombers 1-0.  These two teams will meet again tomorrow night at the Whitney Forum.

Bombers:  The Bombers are starting to get things going at the right time.  With three games left in the season they know that they will face off against the Nipawin Hawks in the first round, it’s just where they are going to start.  Right now Nipawin sits six points up on the Bombers, it’s going to take them to lose their two remaining and for Flin Flon to sweep their final three games.  Flin Flon is winners of six of their last ten games.  Riley Storzuk is hot as of late taking over the team lead in points and currently sits in third in the league despite missing 10 games this season.
