DAUPHIN, MB – For the second straight game the Dauphin Kings outplayed the Swan Valley Stampeders and this time they were rewarded for it, beating the Stamps 3-2 at Credit Union Place Friday Night.

Brandon Holtby was strong between the pipes, turning away 15 of the 17 shots he faced. The Kings put 26 shots on Swan Valley’s Brett Evans.
Power Plays had Dauphin ending the night 0 for 2 while Swan Valley finished at 0 for 5. The Kings Power Play saw some scoring chances and good pressure, but couldn’t connect Friday.
Dauphin picked up the victory in front of 2,157 fans. The last time the Kings saw a number that big in fan support was the Western Canada Cup Championship Game in 2014 between Dauphin and Yorkton.
