One more road game in 2021

The Dauphin Kings open their final home-and-home of 2021 tonight when they head to Selkirk to play the Steelers.

It’s the first meeting of the season between the two teams. Dauphin is 22-6 entering the game and they have a four point lead over Waywayseecappo for first place in the West Division. The Steelers; meanwhile, are 11-13-2-2 and they’re just one point up on Portage for the final playoff spot in the East Division.

The Kings are coming off an impressive weekend in which they beat the Blues twice on back-to-back shutouts and they put up a six spot on Saturday night. Selkirk earned three of a possible four points last weekend against Swan Valley, one win and one overtime loss.

This weekend is the only time these two teams will play in the regular season and it’s the final two-game set before the Christmas break.
