Shoveling Snow

The Dauphin Kings finished their regular season schedule at home the same way they started it, with a victory. This time a 3-2 decision over the OCN Blizzard Tuesday night.

It was the Kings last game at Credit Union Place until playoffs and they played well for the most of it, scoring three unanswered after going down 2-0 in the early stages of the first period.

Picking up goals for the Kings Tuesday night were Mathieu Lapointe (18), Dylan Bredahl (14) and Rylan Freed (11). Dylan Bredahl’s goal (Below) happened because of the fore-check by Dauphin forward Matthew Greening who was playing in his third MJHL game. Greening battled the puck off the stick of OCN goalie and former Parkland Ranger teammate Brody Claeys then fired it out front to Bredahl who made no mistake. Greening, Tyler Derkach and Daniel Chartrand had their ups and downs on a line together, but overall they played well and never really looked out of place. Those three will now rejoin the Parkland Rangers for their playoff run which begins on Monday.

Connor Shaw (9-5) took the win between the pipes for the Kings. I thought he looked a little rattled off the start but settled in nicely and made some key saves as the night progressed. He stopped 19 of 21 total shots. Claeys turned aside 34 of 37.

Special Teams saw Dauphin finish the night 1 for 5 on the Power Play and 1 for 2 on the Penalty Kill. I’ll give credit to the Kings for not getting too sucked in to OCN’s shenanigans after the whistles, they were very disciplined. A few times I saw the linesmen get pushed by players on OCN, which is a bit disappointing to see.

3 Stars

3. Brody Claeys (OCN) (34 Saves)
2. Mathieu Lapointe (DAU) (1G)
1. Dylan Bredahl (DAU) (1G)

The win helps the Kings keep pace with the Waywayseecappo Wolverines, who won Tuesday night over Virden. Dauphin remains two points up the Wolverines in the standings, but Wayway has a game in hand. With two contests left in their season the Kings are 23-29-6, eighth in the standings with 52 points. Dauphin now heads out on the road for their final tilts of the season. They’ll visit the Winnipeg Blues on Friday (On CKDM) and the Virden Oil Capitals on Saturday (On CKDM).

Stay tuned for more this week!
