The Flin Flon Bombers look to bounce back tonight after a lopsided loss at the hands of the Notre Dame Hounds on Wednesday night. The Bombers (4-8-0-3) played their second of four road games against the Hounds and after a 4 goal outburst by the home side, Flin Flon left with a 5-2 loss.
Now they turn to the Estevan Bruins (7-5-0-1) who after a big off season boosting up their roster to host the WCC, are sitting in second place behind the Weyburn Red Wings in the Viterra Division.
This is the first meeting of the season between the two teams. As stated above, the Bruins loaded up, acquiring high scoring forwards Braden Oleksyn and Owen LaClare and re-acquiring Darcy DeRoose, all from the Kindersley Klippers.
They are coming off a big 7-2 loss to the Mevlille Milionaires on Tuesday night.
The Bombers will finish up the four games in five night road trip on Saturday against the Red Wings (10-4-1-0).
Weyburn and Flin Flon have met each other once so far this season, a 2-0 Red Wings victory last weekend at the Whitney Forum. That night the Bombers outshot the Wings 45-28 but was unable to beat starter Jack Burgart.
