The Dauphin Kings peppered Kobe Grant on Friday night with 40 shots. The problem was none of them beat Grant as the Swan Valley Stampeders opened the weekend home-and-home with a 3-0 win.
The two clubs will complete their weekend set on Saturday night as the action switches to Credit Union Place. Dauphin has lost three straight games entering the contest while the Stampeders — after back-to-back losses to open the season — have now won two straight games.
Entering the game at 1-2-1, Dauphin is in a tie for fourth in the division with three points while the Stampeders are now in solo third with four points.
Dauphin will look to get off to a solid start from the puck drop on Saturday as they were down a pair of goals within the first nine minutes on Friday.
