The Dauphin kings nearly made comebacks down from three goals on multiple occasions last night, but they couldn’t quite get it done.
Opening 2022 on home ice, the team dropped a 6-4 contest against the Flyers.
Dauphin fell down 3-0 early before Colby Jaquet and Klim Georgiev scored back to back to cut the deficit to one. But Winkler would then strike with two straight to take a 5-2 lead.
Nick Braun and Slade Stanick would bring Dauphin within a goal; however, that’s as close as they would get as Winkler scored into an empty net to secure the win.
Dauphin is still 23-8 and lead the West by four points.
The two teams will hit the ice again on Sunday afternoon in Winkler.
