Best in the West vs Best in the East

The top team in the West Division is set to battle a team that’s tied for first place in the East Division.

For the first time this season, the Kings will challenge the Steinbach Pistons in neutral territory as the two teams square off at Stride Place in Portage as a part of the MJHL Showcase.

It’s day two of the showcase as there was four games on Monday. Dauphin and Steinbach will hit the ice at 4:30 and a great battle is to be expected.

The two teams have combined for 31 wins this year and just eight regulation losses. Dauphin comes in after sweeping Swan Valley in a four-game set while the Pistons lost three of four against the Blues over the past two weekends.

You can listen to the game on 730CKDM with Darnell Duff or watch it on HockeyTV.
