The Melfort Mustangs(11-3-2-1) will meet the Flin Flon Bombers(6-8-0-3) tonight for their first of 8 meetings on the season. The Mustangs come into tonight's contest riding a bit of a high after knocking off the La Ronge Ice Wolves 6-0 in their most recent contest last Thursday. For the Flin Flon Bombers they've cooled down a bit after a hot start to the season, they dropped 7 straight games in October but have maybe found something after winning their last time out, 4-3 over a good Notre Dame team.
