Steelers Get By Kings

WINNIPEG, MB – The Dauphin Kings couldn’t get anything going Tuesday in a 4-1 loss to the Selkirk Steelers at the MJHL Showcase in Winnipeg. 

The Kings slow start carried over into the middle frame where they cut an early 2-0 deficit into a 2-1 advantage for the Steelers. Keaton Leininger remained hot with his third goal in as many contests. He’s now up to 10 on the season which is a new career high in the MJHL.

Dauphin would get a handful of chances until the mid stages of the third period and then Selkirk capitalized on a bad pinch to grab a 3-1 lead. The Steelers would add an empty netter later on. 

Not much to report on the Special Teams side of things. The Kings went 0 for 1 on the night on the Power Play while Selkirk was 0 for 3. 

Goalie Matteo Esposito suffered the loss between the pipes for the Kings, turning aside 27 f the 30 shots he faced. Dauphin had 20 shots on the Steelers goal. 

The Kings now get set for a contest with the Portage Terriers Wednesday night at the MJHL Showcase. Game time is the same as it was this evening, 7:00pm at the MTS Iceplex.
