The La Ronge Ice Wolves picked up their third straight win on Friday at home when they blasted the Flin Flon Bombers 10-5 at the Mel Hegland Uniplex.
“It’s a big win no matter what, whether it’s 3-2 or 10-5, it don’t matter,” said Ice Wolves Head Coach and GM Kevin Kaminski. “You know what? It’s two points for us, that’s all that matters and it was a good solid 60 minutes.”
Jordan Mish scored twice for La Ronge, while Kevin Fillier, Samson Mouland, Jake Gudjonson, Aaron Greyeyes, Logan Holm, Ben Manson, Chad McIlwain and Rowan Barnes added singles. Jordan Mish ended his night with three points and Jake Gudjonson led the way offensively for the Ice Wolves with a six-point evening.
“The boys were just clicking tonight, everything was going in,” said Gudjonson. “We were working them, laying the body and everyone was just going good tonight.”
The Ice Wolves were very productive on the power play, scoring four times on seven opportunities Friday.
Liam McGarva made 28 saves for his league-leading 17th win of the season in the La Ronge net. Flin Flon’s Jacob Delorme allowed eight goals on 46 shots before he was replaced by Rylan Potkonjak, who surrendered two goals.
Easton Haygarth scored twice for the Bombers, while Billy Klymchuk, Dane Hirst and Caleb Franklin also found the back of the net.
With the win, the Ice Wolves have now collected points in seven straight games. La Ronge improved to 20-14-4 on the season, which still has them in fifth in the very tight SJHL standings. The Ice Wolves are only one point back of Melfort for third.
La Ronge will close out its pre-Christmas schedule Saturday in Flin Flon when they meet the Bombers for the fifth time this season. You can catch the action on MBC Network Radio with Braden Malsbury. The pre-game show is slated to get underway at 7:15 p.m.
