Three Stars Of The Week

DAUPHIN, MB - It was supposed to be a week that would see the Dauphin Kings play four games and three games in three nights but thanks to a winter storm that wasn't the case.

Instead the Kings picked up three of a possible four points last week in two contests. It started out on Tuesday where the team dominated the Neepawa Natives but couldn't walk away with two points, falling 6-5 in a shootout. Dauphin would then go on to see their games Friday (Selkirk) and Saturday (Steinbach) get postponed after an early winter storm rolled through southern Manitoba. The Kings would however play the Winnipeg Blues on Sunday and looked good in a 4-1 afternoon victory.

Dauphin's record coming into this week is 2-5-0-1 on the season. They have two games starting on Wednesday (7:30pm) when they visit the Waywayseecappo Wolverines for the second time this season. Then the Kings return home on Saturday and will look for revenge against the Neepawa Natives. Game time at Credit Union Place is 7:30pm!
