The Winkler Flyers scored on three straight five-on-three power plays to crush the Winnipeg Blues 7-2.


The first half of the first was fairly even, but the Blues were outshot 9-0 in the final 7:05 of the opening frame. Regardless, the first ended without a goal.


Winkler got off to a great start in the second with Daniel Isaak squeaking one through Dawson Green to get his team an early lead.


The Blues worked hard to find on equalizer, but after a successful kill, a turnover to Brody Beauchemin ended up in Winnipeg’s net.


The Blues would find a quick response from Sean Williams on the power play, but Troy Hamilton scored 43 seconds after that goal – the Flyers would carry that two-goal lead into the third.


Ryan Ostermann got the Blues an early goal in the third, but Isaak scored another to pput Winkler back up by two.


At 8:54 in the period, trouble began: the Blues got two bench minors after a call the coaches disagreed with which gave Winkler lots of power play time. 


Hamilton, Jackson Arpin, and Jayden McCarthy scored consecutive five-on-three goals to put the Flyers up by five.


Pearce Gare also received three misconducts and was thrown out of the match.


The Flyers finished off the 7-2 win and now sit four points above the Blues for second place in the East Division.


Winnipeg next plays Tuesday, March 8 at 7:30 p.m. with the Portage Terriers coming to Winnipeg to battle the Blues at the RINK Training Center.
