As you may guess, this series could come down to Special Teams and discipline. Wayway’s Power Play and Penalty Kill are much better than Dauphin’s, especially at home. So if the Kings are to win this series, they’ll have to stay out of the penalty box. Obviously you can’t avoid taking penalties all together, but you can do your best to keep the power play opportunities down for the Wolverines.

Of course Dauphin will also have to find a way to win in Waywayseecappo. They did beat the Wolverines 4-0 in Wayway, but that was the second game of the year and the team was much different back then. Last time out the Kings did play solid in Wayway, but still ended up losing 2-1. Dauphin wen’t 2-0-1 against the Wolverines at Credit Union Place.
