OCN Blizzard Force Top Dogs Into Overtime

It was a lot closer this time around in the battle of Northern Manitoba as the Bombers had to come from behind to beat the OCN Blizzard last night in a shoot out.

 

Flin Flon scored early on the power play when Jaeden Mercier grabbed a rebound off Chase Hamm's pad and flipped in a back hander to put the Bombers up 1 to 0 just 3:31 in to the game.

 

Chase Hamm kepth the net locked down most of the game, blocking an impressive 39/41 shots on net.

 

The Blizzard also seemed to look more confident and you could see that they are starting to implement some Doug Johnson systems.

 

The Blizzard would get rewarded with the next two goals with 4 year vet Riley Zimmerman tapping a puck through Laser Hume's legs to tie the game early in the second.

 

Laser Hume was traded by the Nipawin Hawks earlier in the day to give the Bombers a little more experience in goal.

 

The Blizzard would grab the lead when local product Laz Constant was able to get some room ,  streaked down the ice and fired a nice shot stick side to beat Laser Hume and put his team up 2 to 1 after 2.

 

The Bombers came out and continued to get lots of shots, eventually resulting in a tie late into the third period

 

The rest of regulation and 3 on 3 OT solved nothing so we had to go the shoot out where the Bombers outscored the Blizzard 2-0.

 

The Blizzard begin their regular season Friday against the Swan Valley Stampeders in Swan River.

The Flin Flon Bombers came to the Gordon Lathlin Memorial Centre prepped and having already played four pre season games against other teams while the Blizzard had just wrapped up their main camp on sunday.

 

This showed during the first period when the Flin Flon Bombers scored a staggering 6 goals in 9 shots during the first period.

 

After intermission it seems the team found their footing as new goalie Chase Hamm stopped all but one shot on net. Mitch and Michael Hlady scored the first OCN goal of the night followed by
