The third saw Selkirk out play the Kings a little bit and eventually they were rewarded for it, gaining a 2-1 advantage. After the goal against Dauphin played extremely well and tied things up when Grady Hobbs made a play and snagged his third of the year.
After a late penalty call against the Kings battled through the adversity in overtime and Matthew Greening was the hero, scoring his ninth of the year with Keaton Leininger and Riley Shamray getting in on the assists.
