The Dauphin Kings and Virden Oil Capitals meet for the second time in less than a week tonight as they skate at Credit Union Place.

On Wednesday the Oil Capitals beat the Kings 5-0 at Tundra Oil & Gas Place, now Dauphin will look to respond on their home ice following a solid effort in a 4-3 victory over Selkirk Friday night.

It’s the final game for the month of November for the Dauphin Kings. So far they’re 4-5-1, with the win Friday night over Selkirk the Kings are 2-1-1 at home this month.

Watch tonight’s contest on FASTHockey, opening face off is pegged for 7:30pm. Yes, it’s a late start as the Kings wanted to allow fans to attend the Santa Claus Parade which happens in Dauphin a little earlier in the evening. If you can’t watch this evening’s contest on FASTHockey then follow me on Twitter (@ChristianCKDM) for updates!

Team Stats

Kings 10-12-1: With the recent win under their belts, the Dauphin Kings will need to find some way to keep the ball rolling tonight when they host Virden. A win tonight would be massive for Dauphin’s momentum going forward. If Friday night’s effort in a 4-3 win over Selkirk can be replicated this evening then the Kings should be fine. With success on the Power Play and Penalty Kill Friday Dauphin enters tonight’s tilt with their man advantage at 17.65% (8th) while their PK is at 78.76% (5th). Kirklan Lycar (11G, 9A) is back on top of the Kings in scoring, he had three points yesterday bringing his total to 20 on the campaign. A win by Dauphin tonight could leap frog them past OCN and Swan Valley for sixth in the standings. OCN is home to Portage, Swan Valley is off.

Oil Capitals 16-9-0: The month of November has seen the Virden Oil Capitals heat up. They’re 8-3-0 in the month and have won six of their last seven games. Virden was also in action last night, they picked up a 2-1 win over the Winnipeg Blues at Tundra Oil & Gas Place. In November the Oil Capitals are 3-2-0 on the road. If the Kings are to come away with any points they will need to avoid a Special Teams battle with Virden. The Oil Capitals are 3rd in the MJHL on the man advantage (26.32%) and fourth on the Penalty Kill 82.98%. Mack Hardy (12G, 13A) continues to lead Virden in points with 25. Former Dauphin King Drake Bodie enters the tilt on a five game point streak, he has two goals and nine assists in that span.
