Well... that didn't go as planned.

The Bombers dropped a 3-2 decision on the road to division rivals Melfort Wednesday night.

Alex Rondeau drew first blood early in the game for Melfort. Donavan Houle-Villeneuve tied the game up in the second, but the Bombers would never see a lead. Seth McCulloch added a second goal for the 'Stangs, then after Tristan Lemyre tied the game up again, Kyle Bosch gave Melfore a lead with less than two minutes to go.

Jacob Delorme took the L in the Bomber crease, making 28 saves. Shawn Parkinson made 27 saves in the Melfort net.

The loss made no impact in the league standings for the Bombers, who remain on top of the Sherwood division and second in the league overall with 71 points and eight games remaining. The magic number of points for the Bombers to clinch a division title is 75 - division second-place Nipawin has 60 points total and only seven games left, meaning they can only finish with a maximum of 74 points. Flin Flon can also clinch second place in the league over Yorkton by finishing with 76 points. Both numbers can shrink with losses by either the Hawks or Terriers.

The Bombers will have two big home games this weekend against the league-leading Battlefords North Stars, playing Friday and Saturday. Friday's game is the Bomber's annual Hockey Night in the North game, including free admission.
