This is your Flin Flon Bombers Week Preview Powered by Elite Communications
This week, the Flin Flon Bombers take to the road to play 4 games in 5 nights. The first game is on Tuesday is against the Melville Millionaires. Melville currently has a 20-19-0-0 record and is 2nd in the Viterra Division and 6th in the league overall with 40 points. That being said, in the 3 times the Bombers and Millionaires have faced off this season, the Millionaires have been victorious twice, making them the only team to have a positive record against the Bombers this season. The Bombers will definitely be looking to get some revenge and show why they are the #1 team in the country against this Millionaires. Puck drop is Tuesday, February 6, 7:00 PM at the CN Community Centre. The game will be broadcasted on FloHockey and 102.9 CFAR.
The following night, for the second game of the road trip, the Bombers will head to Wilcox, Saskatchewan to take on the Notre Dame Hounds. The Hounds currently hold a record of 11-29-20, are last in the Nutrien division and in the league overall with 24 points. The Bombers and Hounds have played each other 3 times this season with the Bombers winning all of them and out scoring the Hounds 21-3. As long as the Bombers play how they have been the entire season, they should be able to grab the win, but they shouldn’t take the Hounds lightly as being the #1 team, they will definitely get Notre Dames best. Puck drop is Wednesday, February 7, 8:00 PM at the Duncan McNeil Arena. The game will be broadcasted on FloHockey and 102.9 CFAR.
The Bombers will get a one day break before they head to Weyburn to take on the Redwings. Weyburn currently holds a 16-19-0-5 record, is 3rd in the Viterra Division and 8th overall in the league. The Bombers and Red Wings have gone head to head 4 times this season with the Bombers winning all them. Even though the Bombers have won all 4 this season, Weyburn has improved since their last contest with the Bombers and they even just came off a close game with the 3rd best team in the league, the Humboldt Broncos. It will definitely be a tough and exciting game for both teams. Puck Drop is Friday, February 9, 7:00 PM at Crescent Point Place. The game will be broadcasted on FloHockey and 102.9 CFAR.
The last game of the Bombers road trip will be against the Estevan Bruins on Saturday night. The Bruins currently hold a record of 19-20-1-2, are 1st in the Viterra Division and 5th overall in the league with 41 points. Flin Flon and Estevan have played each other twice this season with the Bomber winning both games. This will be the toughest game for the Bombers on the road trip as it is there last game and fatigue could be a factor. On top of that, Estevan and the Bombers have been strong rivals with each other the past 3/4 years, so we will see definitely see a very physical and high octane game when these two teams face off. Puck Drop is Saturday, February 10, 7:00 PM at Affinity Place. The game will be broadcasted on FloHockey and 102.9 CFAR.
