Standing Implications

December 5, 2015

The Dauphin Kings will try for their second straight victory this evening at Credit Union Place when they entertain the Selkirk Steelers at 7:00pm.

Dauphin is coming off a 5-2 win last night over the Neepawa Natives while Selkirk will have a lot of momentum after breaking their losing streak in Swan Valley, beating the Stampeders 3-2 in overtime.

I will not be at tonight’s game. I will be attending a special event in Winnipeg for the Jets game this afternoon, sorry! I hope to Tweet updates in the evening though (@ChristianCKDM). Opening face off tonight is 7:00pm.

Team Stats

Kings 11-14-1: It’s the second meeting in just over a week between Dauphin and Selkirk. After Friday’s decision the Kings will be trying to get a winning streak going. Last time the Steelers were in town Dauphin played well, but almost gave a 4-2 lead in the third period. It’s another big contest for the Kings when it comes to the standings. After Swan Valley lost in OT yesterday they are just three points up on Dauphin. The Kings have four games in hand, one of those games is tonight as Swan is off. Dauphin’s Penalty Kill improved after going 5 for 5 on Friday. It’s now up to 78.95% which is 6th in the MJHL. Dauphin’s Power Play has slipped to 16.06%, 9th in the league. Kirklan Lycar (13G, 9A) and Matthew Greening (7G, 15A) continue to be neck and neck in Dauphin’s scoring. They both lead the club with 22 points. With the win Friday over Neepawa the Kings improved their record to 5-5-1 at Credit Union Place so far the season.

NEAT TREATS

Romano Morrison is on a 3 game point streak (0G, 4A).

Chance Thomas is on a 2 game point streak (2G, 1A).

Steelers 10-14-2: As mentioned Selkirk snapped their eight game losing skid Friday evening in Swan River. So now the Steelers will be riding high coming into tonight’s tilt. It should be an interesting one as things got a little chippy last time these two teams met. Along with that, Selkirk is just a single point back of Dauphin in the standings. Both teams are even in games played at 26. If the playoffs were to begin today they would meet in the best of three survivor series with the Kings holding home ice advantage. Selkirk’s Penalty Kill gave up a goal against Friday in Swan River, putting it at 74% which is 9th in the MJHL. On the Power Play side the Steelers sit at 20.48%, good enough for 7th in the league. Ty Kraus (11G, 18A) leads Selkirk in scoring with 29 points. The Steelers are 3-8-1 on the road so far this season.
