Flanagan Plays Hero as Stamps storm back to beat Neepawa 4-3

The Swan Valley Stampeders came back from an early 3-0 deficit to score 4 unanswered goals and beat the Neepawa Natives 4-3.

The 1st period was one to forget for the Stamps as they would go down 3-0 early as Riley Hillis, Kyle McDonald and Sam Briscoe would all get one past Cole Holowenko. But SV would get one back just as time was gonna expire as Max Provencher would a fortunate bounce off a stanchion and put it in for his 7th goal of the season with only 3 seconds left to make it 3-1 Neepawa after 1 period.

The middle frame would start off a little bit better for the Stampeders and they would get rewarded for it as Mitch Deacon would put a nice wrister top shelf on a nice feed from Dylan Favell in the slot to make it a 3-2 Stamps deficit only after 40 minutes. 

The last frame would be a back and forth affair with both teams having their fair share of chances and it would remain 3-2 until the Stamps would tie it up at 3 with just 42 seconds left as Max Flanagan would scoop up a loose puck and go top shelf on Michael Gudmandson for his 11th marker of the year to tied it up at 3-3 to force OT.

Then in overtime it would yet again be Flanagan with the heroics as he would make the right decision and elect to shoot on a 2 on 1 and would go low glove on the Neepawa goalie for his 2nd of night and 12th of season to give the Stamps a big 4-3 victory. 

Cole Holowenko stopped 36 shots for the win while Michael Gudmandson stopped 42 shots in a losing cause. 

The Stamps will now have a week off until they start a 3 games in 3 nights next Friday when they host the Virden Oil Capitals at the Centennial Arena. Pregame 7:20, play by play 7:30 on GX94.

While in the SJHL, 

The Melville Millionaires got back on the winning track in a big way as they beat the La Ronge Ice Wolves 5-1 at the HCUC.

Brady Constant, Kelvin Walz, Eric Meyer, Connor Tudor, and Landon Farrell all scored for the Mils.

Isaiah Plett had his shutout broken in the final minute but was still very sharp in goal stopping 35 shots for the victory. 

The Mils are now off until Wednesday when they host the a Weyburn Red Wings 7:30 from the HCUC.
