Mils get win streak snapped as they fall in Flin Flon

The Melville Millionaires had their 4 game winning streak snapped as they were blanked 3-0 by the Flin Flon Bombers.

The first period was the most even period of the 3 as both teams had their fair share of chances but it was scoreless after 1 period. 

In the early stages of the 2nd the even play would continue but it would be the Bombers converting and getting on the board as Brock Hounsell would make it a 1-0 lead. It would stay like that until just under 2 mins to go then it would be Austin Calladine getting his 1st of 2 on the night to give the Bombers a 2-0 lead after 40 mins. 

The third would be the Mils best period as they had many chances to make it a 1 goal lead and then they would get a power play but during that man advantage Adam Koopman would be penalized with a 5 min major for boarding and during that Bomber power play they would convert and Calladine would get his 2nd of the night to make it a 3-0 Bomber final.

Devin Buffalo stopped 34 for the shutout while Isaiah Plett stopped 31 in a losing cause.

Mils will play their 4th game in 6 nights on  Sunday when they host Notre Dame 6:00 at the HCUC
Also in the SJHL,

The Yorkton Terriers moved 4 points ahead of the Mils as they shutout Nipawin 3-0 at the FAA. 

Tayler Thompson led the way with a couple shorthanded goals while Josh Ellis chipped one into the empty net for the other. 

Kale Thomson stopped 29 Shota for his 4th shutout of the season. 

The Terriers will be in Estevan on Tuesday. Pregame at 7:20 on GX94.
