The Dauphin Kings have played 41 games and the Niverville Nighthawks have also played 41 games.
That’s 82 games combined, none of which have come against each other, until Friday night.
For the first time this season, the Kings and Nighthawks will meet and two big points are up for grabs. Dauphin enters the night in a tie for first place in the West Division with Waywayseeecappo and Swan Valley.
Niverville; meanwhile, is in fourth place in the East Division and they have a seven-point gap ahead of Winnipeg for fourth place.
Dauphin comes into the game red-hot as they have won four straight games while Niverville is coming off a win in which they scored eight times against Waywayseecappo; however, they have lost four of their last five games.
Friday’s game is the front half of a home and home as the two clubs will meet Sunday afternoon in Niverville. You can catch the game on HockeyTV.
