Will go for a split on Sunday

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.
