Confidence Builder

December 13, 2015

The Dauphin Kings put together a full 60 minute effort in a 4-2 victory over the Winkler Flyers Sunday night.

The win is Head Coach Marc Berry’s first in the MJHL, it also snaps the Kings’ four game losing skid and the Flyers’ three game winning streak.

The first period saw the Kings out shot 18-12 but had them finishing on their lone chance with Landon Plett notching his seventh of the campaign. In the second the Kings played very good and Graeme Hore was rewarded with high fourth of the season following a scramble in front of the Winkler goal. In the third the two teams traded goals. The Flyers tallied on a man advantage marker by Zak Hicks to make it 2-1, but credit the Kings for not falling back on their heels. Dauphin bounced back to take a 3-1 advantage when Aaron Kellogg scored his third in four games. Winkler would get close again before Daniel Chartrand (3) added an empty netter with one second left in the affair.

Power Plays were heavily in favour of Winkler. The Flyers ended the night 1 for 6 on the Power Play, the Kings were 0 for 3.

Brandon Holtby (4-14) was a key to the Kings’ success Sunday night, he stopped 43 of 45 shots. There were no ‘huge’ saves, but positionally Holtby was strong. On the other side the Kings fired 35 on the Winkler net.

The decision is obvious a confidence builder for the Kings who now move into the final week before the Christmas break. Dauphin is now 12-17-2 on the season and are two points back of the Selkirk Steelers for 8th in the standings. The Kings have just two games this week. Friday they host Virden, then Saturday they visit the Oil Capitals. Listen to the One Hour Power Play Show on 730 CKDM Friday afternoon at 4:00pm!
