Brayden Camrud scored again, his 4th of the year, while Luke Spadafora (1g-1a), Daunte Fortner and Owen Guenter also scored.
Brandson Hein had another two goals and two assists, retaking top spot in the league scoring race with 16 points (8g-8a) as the Flin Flon Bombers beat Melville 9-1 at the Whitney Forum in the first game of a weekend double dip for the two teams. It was Hein’s second four-point effort of the season. Caleb Moretz provided a hat trick while Daylan Marchi added two goals and an assist for Flin Flon (4-3-0-0) Pierce Diamond made 33/34 saves. The Millionaires (1-4-1-1) look for the split on Saturday.
