Inconsistency Continues For Kings

October 24, 2014

IMG_3945-0.PNG The Dauphin Kings played a great first two periods but gave up six unanswered goals in the third to drop a 7-4 decision to the Steinbach Pistons Friday night.

Once again the Kings failed to play a full 60 minutes and it cost them.

This time it was undisciplined penalties that put Dauphin behind the gun. In total they had 12 minutes of infractions in the third period alone.

When the contest ended the Kings finished the night 2 for 8 on the Power Play and 7 for 10 on the Penalty Kill. Scoring Friday for the Kings were Mathieu Lapointe (7), Chance Thomas (4) and Tyler Garrioch (5 & 6) had both of Dauphin’s goals on the Power Play.

Riley Corbin (5-7) started and finished the tilt for Dauphin, he stopped 23 of 29 shots he faced. The Kings had 29 on the Pistons net.

The loss is a tough one for Dauphin to swallow considering they were up 4-1 after 40 minutes and playing very well, but the Kings now slip to 7-7-2 on the season and will play a very good Winkler club on Saturday.

All Dauphin can do is forget about Friday’s third period and move forward, it’s in the past and there’s nothing they can do about it.

Thanks for following tonight, more below…

Away From Home

The Dauphin Kings kick off a six game road swing tonight when they visit the Steinbach Pistons for the second time this season.

Dauphin will actually play seven of their next eight games on the road and they’re all spread out over the next two weeks.

Tonight the Kings head down to the southern part of Manitoba and play in rinks that now most of their players are familiar with. Last time Dauphin made a trek south a good amount of their players had yet to play in rinks like Steinbach, Winkler and Portage. More on that in a minute with Kings Head Coach and General Manager Marlin Murray.

I won’t be broadcasting tonight’s game because the Winnipegosis Talent Show is on 730 CKDM. However you can follow me on twitter for updates (@ChristianCKDM)! Opening face off this evening is 7:30pm.

Tonight will also likely mark the debut of twins Robin (D) and Regan (F) Yew who were acquired from the SJHL’s Battlefords North Stars earlier this week.

UPDATE: Sixteen year old Forward Graeme Hore has joined the Hockey Club permanently and will be in the lineup tonight.

Here’s Marlin Murray. We start with something people were wondering about earlier this week, that’s one of the team’s latest additions, Sine Chadi…

Team Stats

Kings 7-6-2: The Dauphin Kings get a chance to get away from the spotlight of Credit Union Place for the next few weeks. It will give them a chance to focus on their game and try and get their consistency a little more consistent, if that makes any sense! As you heard in the interview, I’m interested now to see how the Kings react and play in a rink they’ve now had an experience in. Last time Dauphin was in Steinbach they actually played very well and likely deserved a much better fate, losing 4-1. Troy Martyniuk stood on his head and the Kings had chances but could not finish. Coming into this evening Special Teams for the Kings are steady. They’re fourth in the MJHL on the Power Play (19.35%) and third on the Penalty Kill (88.00%). Mathieu Lapointe (6G, 4A) still leads Dauphin with 10 points so far this season (15 games).

set

Pistons 7-4-0: It’s been kind of a quiet start to the season for the Steinbach Pistons. When I say that I mean they’ve only played 11 games so far, only one team has played less and that’s the Selkirk Steelers. Coming into this evening the Pistons are two points back of Dauphin for fourth in the league. No this game isn’t as big as it probably would be if it were later in the year, but it is still significant. Steinbach still has games in hand on Dauphin as well (4). Take it for what it’s worth, but this is the first game in Steinbach for the Pistons since they last played the Dauphin Kings. That’s right, Steinbach has not been on home ice for a contest since Saturday September 27th. The Pistons Special Teams are solid, third in the MJHL on the Power Play (20.00%) and eighth on the Penalty Kill (83.33%). Tyler Penner (5G, 6A) and James Shearer (2G, 9A) are the leading scorers for Steinbach with 11 points.

Talking Transactions

October 22, 2014

IMG_2928.JPG

It’s been a busy week for the Dauphin Kings. Along with playing games on the ice the team has been making deals off it.

Below is an interview with Kings Head Coach and General Manager Marlin Murray.

In this chat we address a number of items including two trades and two transactions.

October 21st – 5:02pm - The Dauphin Kings have traded 18 year old forward Matt Kenney to the SJHL’s Humboldt Broncos for future considerations.

October 20th – 12:35pm – The Dauphin Kings have acquired 19 year old forward Regan Yew and 19 year old D-man Robin Yew from the Battlefords Northstars of the SJHL for 20 year old D-man Brendan Dusik and future considerations.

We’ll also touch on local goalie Connor Shaw and American Andrew Green and where those two are now…

Coming Up Short

October 21, 2014

The Dauphin Kings dug themselves into a 4-0 hole in the opening period and could not recover, falling 5-3 to the Neepawa Natives Tuesday night at Credit Union Place.

It was almost like Friday night’s game against Winkler where the Kings came out flat and could not get into the contest and by the time they did it was already over.

Even though they lost the Kings did get some positives out of the night. Local product Taran Lacquette scored his first goal in the MJHL as he roofed a wrist shot under the bar on the Power Play in the second period. D-man Hayden Pierce also got his first as a King Tuesday. The other scorer for Dauphin was Tanner Hepp (3).

Dauphin arguably dominated the tilt from the second period on where they out shot Neepawa 33-15. In the end the totals were 46-26 Kings.

Riley Corbin (5-6) had an off night in net, he gave up four goals on 11 shots in the first. Troy Martyniuk stepped in in the second and finished the affair, stopping 14 of 15 shots.

It looked like the Kings were really gaining momentum in the third period and appeared to have gotten to within two of Neepawa but Kirklan Lycar’s goal was waved off because of a player (Tyler Garrioch) in the crease (Video below).

Special Teams had Dauphin finish the evening 1 for 5 on the Power Play and 3 for 4 on the Penalty Kill.

It’s the Kings third straight loss and drops them to 7-6-2 on the MJHL campaign. To me it feels like this team needs to get out on the road and play a simple type of game. They’ll get that wish. Starting Friday the Kings play six straight on the road. The three-in-three road trip to start it sees them hit the ice in Steinbach, Winkler and Portage before getting a week off.

Thanks for following, more below…

IMPORTANT: Before going any further I want to let you know to check my blog tomorrow around 11:00am. There have been a cluster of transactions made by the Dauphin Kings recently and Kings Head Coach and General Manger Marlin Murray and myself will address all four of them. So again, check back tomorrow at 11:00am!

Now… Here’s Marlin Murray on tonight’s contest…

Here’s the no goal we discussed in the interview. You be the judge, could Garrioch move out of the crease or was he pushed and held in? You can also see the call get changed from a goal to no goal after Neepawa goalie Alex Henry pleaded his case.

End Of The Stand

October 21, 2014

stand

For the final time in over two weeks fans will see the Dauphin Kings hit the ice at Credit Union Place as they take on the Neepawa Natives tonight.

It’s the third game in a three game home stand for the Kings who head out on the road for six straight after. So far the Kings are 0-1-1 in this latest stretch at Credit Union Place. Despite not having a win yet you could say the Kings have gotten better since the opening face off against Winkler last Friday and the game winning goal against Portage in overtime on Sunday.

A win tonight for Dauphin would be a confidence builder for the MJHL team as they get set for three-games-in-three-nights on the weekend. It is unknown if the Kings newest additions, Regan Yew and Robin Yew, will be in the lineup for this evening’s affair. However they are expected to be with the club for the three-in-three road trip this weekend. Follow me on here for the lineup around 6:00pm.

You can listen and watch tonight’s game on FastHockey. It gets started at 7:00pm. For free pictures, videos and updates along the way, be sure to follow me on Twitter (@ChristianCKDM)!

Team Stats 

Kings 7-5-2: Even though they lost to Portage Sunday night, the Dauphin Kings played well enough to beat the number one ranked team in the CJHL in my opinion. Building off the effort Sunday will be key for Dauphin. The Kings will get an important piece back in their lineup tonight as Captain Tyler Garrioch has now served his three game suspension for the hit on Winnipeg Blues D-man Stephen Kleysen on Saturday October 11th. You could tell their was a void on the Dauphin Kings bench that needed to be filled and this evening it will be. I’m sure the players and coaching staff will be happy to have their leader back. Coming into tonight the Kings Power Play sits fourth in the MJHL at 19.30% while Dauphin’s Penalty Kill is second at 88.73%. Mathieu Lapointe (6G, 4A) continues to lead the Kings in points with 10.

NEAT STATS GOING INTO THE GAME

Kirklan Lycar is on a 3 game point streak (2G, 1A).

bench5

Neepawa 3-7-1: The Neepawa Natives have not been on the ice since they last played the Dauphin Kings, that was last Wednesday in Neepawa. That means the Natives still sit in the midst of a five game losing streak. It’s actually a busy week for Neepawa, they’ll take part in four games in the next seven days. Special Teams need to turn around for the Natives if they plan on getting wins anytime soon. Coming into tonight Neepawa has the second worst Power Play in the MJHL (10.77%) and the worst Penalty Kill (70.59%). Another glaring stat is goals for and against averages for the Natives. Both of them are at or near the bottom of the league. Neepawa is averaging 4.82 goals against per game (11th) and 2.82 goals for per game (10th). Leading the Natives in scoring coming into tonight is Kevin Miller (3G, 7A), he has 10 points.
