The Flin Flon Bombers were on the road this past weekend for three games, losing 9-0 to the Melville Millionaires on Friday night, and 6-3 to the Yorkton Terriers on Saturday night. Results from Sunday's game in Nipawin were not available at press time. Matt Steffanisian led Melville's attack with three goals on Friday night. Troy Ciernia stopped 50 shots, as the Bombers were out shot 59-19. Flin Flon did not give up a power play goal, but Melville's first two goals were scored while short handed. The Bombers started out on the right track on Saturday in Yorkton, jumping out to a 2-0 lead by the 10-minutes mark of the first period. Andrew Skrabek's one-timer blast beat goaltender Kevin Dziaduck at 6:20 on a power play, assisted by Tyler Stinton and Jeff LaPointe. Stewart Sjoberg made it 2-0 for Flin Flon at 10:04, with Craig Parks assisting. Lance Herauf stole the momentum for Yorkton scoring with 1:01 left to play in the first period.

Ryan Boak stopped the bleeding for the Bombers, scoring from Moggach at 11:02. That was a close as the Bombers would get, as the Terriers held on to win 6-3. The Bombers out shot the Terriers 41-39, scoring one power play goal in seven chances. Yorkton scored once on four tries with the man advantage. The Bombers played most of Saturday's game with a short bench. Call-up Trevor Olyayk did not play after taking a knee on Friday. Andrew Skrabek left the game with an undisclosed injury, and team captain Derek Blais was ejected after an argument with an official In their absence, Joey Moggach and Kyle Holmes played a solid game up front, and John Iron and Brennan Giroux filled in nicely on the blueline. Thankfully, the Bombers will not have to play the Millionaires again this season. The Terriers will visit the Whitney Forum later this season.
