Offensive outburst leads Bruins to win over Hounds

Gabriel Filion (11) of the Estevan Bruins scored twice in Saturday night’s game against Notre Dame.

ESTEVAN - The Estevan Bruins scored four times in a nine-minute span of the second period in a 6-2 victory over the Notre Dame Hounds on Saturday night at Affinity Place.

Jagjeevan Phangura scored midway through the first period on a power play to give the Bruins an early 1-0 lead. Notre Dame’s Jacob Ligi tied the game before the period was complete.

The Bruins came out flying in the second. They had a couple of great scoring chances early in the frame, forcing Hounds’ goalie Johann Tremblay-Kau to make big saves.

Evan Forrest’s goal 3:40 in the second period put the Bruins ahead. The floodgates opened when Cody Davis scored five minutes later on a rebound opportunity. Then Gabriel Filion tallied 81 seconds later following a Hounds’ turnover. Owen Miley finished the offensive barrage when he pinched in from the point to convert a scoring chance 2:04 after Filion’s goal.

Ligi scored his second of the game midway through the third period on a two-man advantage for the Hounds, and Filion came up with his second of the game late in the third.

Jackson Miller stopped 27 shots to get the victory. Johann Tremblay-Kau made 26 saves for Notre Dame.

The win came two nights after the Bruins fell 3-2 to the Hounds in Wilcox.

Estevan (27-22-3-2) has 59 points and two games remaining in the regular season. They will host the Melville Millionaires Wednesday night at 7 p.m. at Affinity Place in their final home game of the regular season. Then they will visit Weyburn Saturday.

If the Bruins get a point in either of those games, they would clinch the Viterra Division title for the second straight season and the fifth time in six seasons.
