The Bruins Tamed the Mustangs

A third period comeback catapulted the Estevan Bruins to their third straight win as they knocked off the Melfort Mustangs 4-3 Wednesday night at the Northern Lights Palace.

The seesaw affair saw the Bruins take an early 2-0 lead only to give up three unanswered goals to Melfort before rallying to score twice in the third period.

Forward Eric Pearce scored the game winner with only a few minutes left on the clock.

Forward Zach Burns also scored for Estevan in his first game action since November following a concussion.

Boston Bilous got the win in net, his 17th victory.

The Bruins now have 27 wins on the year.

They’ll host Kindersley on Saturday night at Affinity Place.
