You’ll have to excuse the Estevan Bruins if they aren’t too eager to return to the Whitney Forum when the SJHL playoffs get going this spring.

After losing 3-1 Saturday night in Flon Flon, the Bruins have now dropped five straight games at the historic Manitoba rink over the last nine months.

The Bruins have now lost four straight games since handing the Battlefords North Stars their first regulation loss a couple of weeks ago.

Estevan now has two weeks off before returning to Affinity Place on Feb.11 against the red hot Nipawin Hawks.
