DAUPHIN, MB - Four goals in the first period paced the Dauphin Kings to a 10-1 victory over the OCN Blizzard Saturday night at Credit Union Place.
Dauphin's four goals in the opening period came from Riley Buller (11), Ian Tookenay (3), Bryon Fobair (14) & Brendan Arnold (6).
The Kings would continue their obliteration of the Blizzard in the second period, scoring five goals with Riley Buller notching a Hatrick. Goals in the middle frame came off the sticks of Smith (10), Buller (12 & 13) & DeKoninck (11) and Smelski (6).
Dauphin would treat the crowd of over 1000 to one more goal in the final frame from Eamonn Miller (10) before allowing the Blizzard to get on the board with less than five minutes to play.
It was a quiet night in net for Ethan Slobodzian, but he got the job done, stopping 16 of 17 shots while his team launched 57 at the OCN net.
Dauphin tallied once on the man advantage Saturday and did not give up a goal against on the Special Teams side of things.
The win improves Dauphin's record to 25-22-6 on the season, keeping them 6th in the standings. They're now six points ahead of Winnipeg (7th), eight points up on Winkler (8th) and 10 ahead of Wayway (9th).
