The Melville Millionaires dropped two games over the weekend to the Flin Flon Bombers on the road.

In Game 1, Melville would get off to a 3-1 lead after 20 minutes, as Zach McIntyre (2) would open up the scoring. Flin Flon would answer back with a powerplay goal just two minutes later. Melville would then capitalize on back-to-back powerplays as Louis-Frederic Theberge (1) would score to give the Millionaires the lead, before Zach McIntyre (3) would score his second of the game to extend the lead to two.

Things would take a turn for the worst for Melville as they allowed eight unanswered goals, with the Bombers scoring four in both the second and the third.

In Game 2, Flin Flon would dominate on the scoreboard again, but goaltending would keep things close for Melville.

The Millionaires would again open up the scoring as Jonathan Krahn (3) scored midway through the first.

In the second, Nathan Flodell (1) for the Bombers would tie the game at one. It wouldn't take long for Melville to retake the lead as Zach Cain (5) gave them the lead just 27 seconds later. Flin Flon would tie things up once again as Brett Wieschorster (1) scored.

In the third period, Nathan Gagne (5) would score to give them the lead; however, in the last minute of play, Zach McIntyre would score for the third time in two games to tie the game up and send the game to overtime despite being outshot 51 to 30 in the game.

It wouldn't take long for the Bombers to score in overtime as Nathan Gagne won the game for Flin Flon just one minute and 58 seconds into the extra frame.

Melville has dropped three-in-a-row and will look to end that streak at home against the Bombers (9-3-0-0) once again on Tuesday.
