Flyers Bounce Kings 8-1

January 15, 2016

  
A bad second half of the second period cost the Dauphin Kings their 21st loss of the season, an 8-1 decision to the Winkler Flyers Friday night.

The game itself did not feel like a blow out. For a game to be a blow out one team needs to heavily outplay the other and that, in my opinion, wasn’t the case on this night. Winkler just showed their experience when it came to skill and finishing on their chances.

The Kings had lots of opportunities to do things in the offensive zone, and they did. However when it came to scoring goals it was the last dot they just couldn’t connect. I actually thought Dauphin didn’t play that bad of a road game.

Brandon Holtby (7-18) took the loss between the pipes on this night, but likely couldn’t be faulted. A lot of WInkler’s eight goals were either perfect shots or great tips in front. Holtby stopped 32 of 40 shots while Connor Slipp turned aside 29 of 30.

Tristan Keck led the way for the Flyers with four points while former Dauphin King Cam Whyte had three. Trevor Kavanaugh (3) had the Kings’ lone tally on the Power Play.

For the fourth straight contest Dauphin notched a Power Play goal, they ended the night 1 for 3. Winkler was 1 for 3 as well. Officiating Friday was extremely inconsistent, however it didn’t affect the outcome of the game. Luckily.

With the outcome the Kings drop to 15-21-2 on the season. They’ll look to regroup as they visit the Pistons Saturday in Steinbach. Game time on 730 CKDM is 7:30pm!

Sorry Parkland Ranger fans but I have bad news, Brad Goethals and Kayle Tosh will return to Eastman Selects in time for tomorrow’s game in Dauphin at Credit Union Place. Both were solid Friday and didn’t look out of place whatsoever. I, along with the rest of the Kings staff, look forward to seeing them play again in the near future.

Thanks for following tonight…
