The Whitney Forum has not been overly kind to the Estevan Bruins. 

In their first trip back to the iconic Flin Flon rink since the 2022 SJHL finals, the Bruins were beaten 5-1 and have now lost three straight games.

The Bruins hung around for most of the night, trailing just 2-1 after 40 minutes before the game slipped away in the third period.

Jag Phangura scored the lone Estevan goal. Sniper Cole Duperreault scored twice for the Bombers.

The two teams play again Saturday in Flin Flon.
