Bouncing The Blizzard

February 20, 2015

IMG_4403

The Dauphin Kings got off to a great start and rolled from there, beating the Blizzard in OCN 5-1 Friday night.

Odd man rushes were the flavour of the first period. Rylan Freed (9) scored on the first one to put the Kings up 1-0 early on. Ben Hull (17) grabbed a Power Play marker and then Freed (10) added another to make it 3-0 Dauphin after the first. The Kings picked up where they left off in the second and Landon Plett snagged his sixth of the season.

OCN grabbed a bit of momentum in the middle frame, making it a 4-1 contest, but Dauphin regained their four goal lead when Kirklan Lycar netted his seventeenth of the campaign on a solid set up by Drake Bodie.

Connor Shaw (7-5) had another excellent showing, he won his third straight start and stopped 29 of 30 shots. The Kings had 24 on the OCN net.

Both clubs had four chances on the man advantage and both were 1 for 4.

Parkland Rangers Matthew Greening and Tyler Derkach both played in their second MJHL game on Friday. They were on a line with Ty Moffat and the unit had a few chances throughout the evening. Derkach had the best opportunities, but failed to score. However the way he and Greening played is no doubt a good sign.

3 Stars

3. Ryan Edevold (DAU) (2A)
2. Kirklan Lycar (DAU) (1G, 1A)
1. Rylan Freed (DAU) (2G)

The win improves the Kings’ record to 21-29-6 on the season. They’re up to eighth in the MJHL again. With 48 points Dauphin is two up on Wayway but the Wolverines have a game in hand. They’ll be in action tomorrow when they visit OCN. As for the Kings they’ll be in Neepawa to skate with a Natives team that beat them 4-2 one week ago. Listen on CKDM, Pre Game is 7:20pm, opening face off is 7:30pm!
