Special teams were the difference on Saturday night and it helped pushed the Kings to a 1-0 series lead.
The Kings went a perfect 3-for-3 on the penalty kill and they scored once on the powerplay on their only chance.
Now the teams meet in Dauphin tonight before the series moves to Winkler for games three and four on Wednesday and Thursday.
Dauphin opened this series with six players that didn’t play against the Flyers when they met back in January, and those players certainly made a difference. Carson Cherepak was solid in net while Klim Georgiev made his return from a 16 game absence and despite picking up three penalties, he played quite well.
Logan Calder also scored and continues to prove why he is one of the best in the league. If Winkler is to have success in this series, Jayden McCarthy and Justin Svenson will have to get it going after combining for just one assist on Saturday.
