Kings and Freeze meet again


48 hours after playing against each other for the first time, the Dauphin Kings and Winnipeg Freeze will do battle, this time in Winnipeg.

Dauphin opened the short two-game season series with a 7-4 win on Tuesday, their 40th of the season. The Kings have already clinched first in the West Division as they look for their 41st win of the season. They will play Swan Valley in the first round of the playoffs.

The Freeze; meanwhile, have long been eliminated from the playoffs but that doesn’t mean they aren’t still trying. They were neck and neck with Dauphin on the scoreboard on Tuesday for quite sometime before the Kings opened up the game.

Thursday’s contest is Dauphin’s final of the season before preparation for the Stampeders begins on Monday. You can watch Thursday’s game on HockeyTV.
