Kings End 3-in-3 With Loss

October 26, 2014

IMG_3960.PNG

The Dauphin Kings lost their sixth straight game Sunday night as they closed out a three-game-in-three-night road swing, losing 6-2 to the Portage Terriers.

Portage got on the board 1:33 into the contest but the Kings did respond as Kirklan Lycar buried his sixth of the season. After that it was all Terriers as they scored two more in the first and added three in the second. Dauphin’s Chance Thomas (5) added a Power Play goal late in the middle frame to give the Kings a little life but they couldn’t build off it. No one scored in the third.

Troy Martyniuk started in net for the Kings but did not finish, he left in the mid stages of the second after giving up five goals on 15 shots. Riley Corbin stepped in and stopped 19 of the 20 he faced. Dauphin put 25 on the Portage net.

Power Plays saw each team get a goal, Dauphin ended the evening 1 for 5 while Portage was 1 for 6.

Now the Kings get a much needed week off to regroup and correct things at practice. After Monday off they’ll return to the ice Tuesday. Dauphin’s next game comes on Saturday when they head north to skate with the Swan Valley Stampeders. You can hear the game on CKDM. The Kings are now 7-9-2 on the season.

Thanks for following tonight and good night from the bus…

Closing It Out

October 26, 2014

chip3

It’s the final game of a three-in-three stretch tonight for the Dauphin Kings as they visit the RBC Cup host Portage Terriers for the second time this season.

Through two meetings this year the Terriers have won both, but the Kings played strong in their last meeting which was a 4-3 loss in overtime at home last week.

After yesterday’s somewhat better effort in Winkler the Kings will once again need all they’ve got to get past a Portage team that had Saturday off.

You can hear tonight’s contest on 730 CKDM, the Pre Game Show gets going at 6:20pm, game time is 6:30pm. If you can’t listen then follow me on twitter, I’ll have updates (@ChristianCKDM)!

Intermissions on CKDM: Tonight in the first and second intermissions you’ll hear two interviews. In the first intermission it’s a chat with Kings forward Kirklan Lycar who joined the team recently after being assigned by the WHL’s Brandon Wheat Kings. He’s also now a former and current teammate of Forward Landon Plett who you’ll hear in the second intermission. Both will touch on a few items including the World Series, playing together with the Eastman Selects, fun facts about each other and more.

Team Stats

Kings 7-8-2: Losers of five straight the Dauphin Kings don’t need a win tonight in my opinion. What they need is an effort they can build on for the upcoming week. They need to play a game that is consistent and simple. They also need to play better on the defensive side of the puck. The last time the Kings gave up less than three goals was when they beat the Winnipeg Blues 3-2 in a shootout, seven games ago. Coming into tonight the Kings Power Play is moving along at 20.00%, fourth overall, while the Penalty Kill stats have them at 86.36% which is also fourth. After last night Mathieu Lapointe (7G, 5A) is still atop the Kings in scoring with 12 points.

NEAT STATS GOING INTO THE GAME

Taran Lacquette is on a 2 game point streak (1G, 1A).

Ben Hull is on a 2 game point streak (0G, 2A).

Terriers 15-1-0: The beat goes on for the Portage Terriers, even though they lost earlier this week at home to the Winkler Flyers (3-2) they quickly got back on track with a 6-2 win against Wayway on Friday. Compared to the Kings, and the rest of the league for that matter, the Terriers stats are quite impressive so far. Take goals for for example. So far this season Portage 86 goals for and 29 against, thats +57. If you do the math on that’s an average of well over five goals per game (5.38). Their goals against per game is also strong at (1.81). Special Teams are very good for the Terriers too. Their Power Play is 23.46, third in the league, their Penalty Kill is tops at 90.59%. Zach Waldvogel (10G, 14A) and Brad Bowles (5G, 19A) lead the league and Portage in scoring with 24 points.

Minor Mistakes Costing Kings

October 25, 2014

IMG_3950.JPG

The Dauphin Kings dropped their fifth straight game Saturday, this time at the hands of the Winkler Flyers by a score of 6-2.

Comparing the contest to Friday’s in Steinbach Dauphin played better but it seems as if minor mistakes are costing the club at this point.

The first period was pretty even and saw Winkler up 1-0 through 20 minutes. It should have been tied through the first period but a horrible high sticking call erased a Dauphin power play goal off the score sheet (Video below). Stats at the end of the evening had the Kings going 1 for 6 on the Power Play and 4 for 4 on the Penalty Kill. The disallowed goal came at a bad time for Dauphin who were carrying the play and would have gained a lot of momentum for the marker. Unfortunately it wasn’t meant to be.

Troy Martyniuk (2-4) was between the pipes for Dauphin Saturday, he stopped 34 of the 40 shots he faced, the Kings had 32.

Scoring on the night for Dauphin were Kirklan Lycar (5) and Graeme Hore (First in MJHL – Video below).

From what I saw Saturday it’s simple things like when a defenseman goes back into the corner to get the puck he immediately shoots it around the boards and doesn’t look before he makes the play. Or a forward that passes the puck up the ice too quick, rather than skating a couple zones with it. Maybe the Kings need to just get back to basics next week at practice.

Dauphin will take part in one more game this weekend to close out the three-in-three. They’ll tangle with the Portage Terries Sunday evening at 6:30pm. You can hear the affair on 730 CKDM, Pre Game 6:20pm.

The Trip Continues

October 25, 2014

front34

The Dauphin Kings are back on the ice tonight as they meet the Winkler Flyers for the third time this season.

Dauphin will be looking for a response after last night’s disappointing third period in Steinbach where they gave up six unanswered goals to fall 7-4 to the Pistons.

Lineup changes will be likely this evening after a couple players had an off night yesterday. I never had a chance to touch on the three new players added to the Kings lineup yesterday. Regan and Robin Yew were both solid in my opinion. On the back end Robin looked good and not too much out of place considering it was his first game as a King. Regan showed well too, I liked his speed and some of the passes he made. Graeme Hore was also injected into the Dauphin lineup yesterday, he wasn’t noticable, but in a good way. Now that his first MJHL game is out of the way, I’m looking forward to see him play moving forward.

Like yesterday, tonight’s game won’t be broadcast on 730 CKDM. This time it’s due to the Winnipeg Blue Bomber game, it’s a must win for them against the BC Lions. So you know who I’ll be cheering for there. Follow me on Twitter for free updates from tonight’s game (@ChristianCKDM)! Game time is 7:30pm.

Team Stats

Kings 7-7-2: With four straight losses behind them I would now say it’s time for the Dauphin Kings to start showing some urgency. No the season isn’t lost yet or anything, but the Kings need to get out of this losing streak and start working towards gaining home ice for the playoffs (Finishing in the top four). If you fall too far back you might never be able to regain control. Last night’s loss in Steinbach had the Dauphin Penalty Kill take a hit, it dropped down to fifth in the MJHL at 85.54% while the Power Play is now above 20% at 20.59%, which is fourth in the league. With his seventh goal last night Mathieu Lapointe (7G, 5A) leads the Kings in points with 12.

Treat: Today is Dauphin Kings FW Chance Thomas’ 19th Birthday.

Flyers 10-2-4: The second place Winkler Flyers come into tonight going in the opposite direction of the Kings. Dauphin arguably had one of their worst losses of the season last night, Winkler is coming off arguably their biggest win. The Flyers are the only team to beat the RBC Cup host Portage Terriers this season, they did it earlier this week in Portage. So you know they’ll be flying high coming into this evening. Last time when the Flyers hosted Dauphin they came back from 4-2 in the third period to win 6-4. Winkler’s Power Play is fifth in the MJHL at 14.93% while their Penalty Kill sits at 88.89%, second in the league. Tristen Keck (15G, 3A) leads the Flyers in scoring with 18 points, that’s good enough for sixth overall.

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.
