Logan Nagel made 32 saves in the win.

Their final victory was a 2-1 win over the Yorkton Terriers on Jan. 12. The Terriers scored on a power play late in the first to end the midget Bruins shutout streak, but then Kieran Stewart and Tayce Miller scored in the second.

The Bruins then held off the Terriers in the third.
