For the first time this season, the most northern team in the league comes to town.
And when the Blizzard pay a visit to Credit Union Place, the Kings will look for a weekend split.
Two nights after a 3-0 loss in The Pas, Dauphin hosts OCN in the first afternoon contest of the year.

Despite the loss on Friday, Carson Cherepak played very well, making 32 saves.
Sunday’s meeting is the second of eight between the two teams and the second of four straight, as both will play another home-and-home next weekend.
