On The Road

September 26, 2015

Following their home opener last night the Dauphin Kings begin a stretch that sees them play their next four games away from Credit Union Place.

Tonight the Kings are in Neepawa to complete their home-and-home set with the Natives that got off to a bit of a rough start last night with Dauphin falling 5-2. After this evening Dauphin visits Wayway on Tuesday, and then head to the MJHL Showcase in Winnipeg next weekend.

The Kings struggled to find their scoring touch in the affair. They weren’t short of chances, just goals.

Listen to this evening’s affair on 730 CKDM, it’s 100% FREE. The Parkland Source for Sports Pre Game Show begins at 7:15pm, puck drop is scheduled for 7:30pm. If you can’t listen the follow me on Twitter (@ChristianCKDM). You can also listen to the game online at 730ckdm.com.

Intermissions: Tonight in the first intermission we’ll speak with Dauphin Fire Chief Cam Abrey and Kings Head Coach & GM Marlin Murray about the Kings new third jersey and how it honours the Dauphin Fire Department. We’ll also take a look at a busy out of town scoreboard in both intermissions. There are three other contests in the MJHL.

TEAM STATS

Kings (0-1-0): The Dauphin Kings will look to make adjustments tonight when they enter one of the smaller ice surfaces in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League. I don’t know what it’s been over the last few season, but Dauphin has seemed to have issues playing in Neepawa. Last time in town, in exhibition, they fell 3-2 in a shootout to the Natives. The Kings will try and bounce back on the special teams side of things, they were 0 for 5 on the power play and went 3 for 4 on the penalty kill. Four players had a single point for the Kings Friday, they were Chance Thomas (1G), Rory Davidson (1G), Matthew Greening (1A) and Hayden Pierce (1A).

Natives (1-0-0): Overall the Neepawa Natives are likely happy with the way they played last night, I mean they did pick up two points on the road. However, they were hemmed in their own zone quite often in the contest. Especially in the second period. Regardless they won the game, and at the end of the day that’s what every team sets out to do. Neepawa also won the special teams battle yesterday, going 1 for 4 on the power play and 5 for 5 on the penalty kill. D-man Griffin Chwaliboga leads Neepawa in points after opening night. He had two assists in Dauphin.
