Quick Turnaround

February 6, 2016

scham

Less than 24 hours after one of their worst losses in a long time, the Dauphin Kings return to the ice to host the Selkirk Steelers tonight at Credit Union Place.

Dauphin dropped a disappointing 10-2 loss to the Portage Terriers on Friday and nothing will cure their frustrations more than two points this evening against a team they have somewhat struggled against this season.

It’s the sixth and final meeting between the two clubs this season, but if the playoffs were to start today the best-of-three survivor series would start in Selkirk between the Kings and Steelers.

Watch tonight’s game on FASTHockey, opening face off is 7:00pm. If you can’t watch then follow me on Twitter (@ChristianCKDM) for updates!

Remember tonight’s tilt is FREE for fans to attend thanks to North of 51 and Western Bakery in Dauphin. So just show up and watch hockey! There’s lots of other stuff going on at the rink outside of the game as well.

Team Stats

Kings 16-29-3 (9th): The Dauphin Kings can’t afford to dwell on Friday’s 10-2 decision to the Portage Terriers. Instead they must refocus and play a better game against a team they know they can beat. Dauphin, in stretches, has played well against the Steelers. Selkirk owns the season series though, winning four of the five matchups so far. After a bad night on the Special Teams side of things yesterday the Kings bring in the MJHL’s 10th ranked Power Play (14.48%) and 8th ranked Penalty Kill (77.02%). Kirklan Lycar (17G, 22A) did not pick up any points Friday, but still leads Dauphin in that category with 39. The Kings have lost seven straight and are seven points behind Selkirk coming into this game. Both clubs are even in games played at 48.

NEAT TREATS

Chance Thomas is on a 4 game point streak (0G, 4A).

Matthew Greening is on a 3 game point streak (1G, 2A).

Aaron Kellogg is on a 2 game point streak (1G, 1A).

Steelers 20-26-2 (8th): The Selkirk Steelers were also in action last night. They lost a home game 2-0 to the Virden Oil Capitals. The Steelers are just four points behind the OCN Blizzard (3 games in hand) for 7th in the standings and only five back of Swan Valley (2 games in hand) for 6th. So they likely will have a bit of a different agenda coming into this affair. Selkirk’s Special Teams are about on the same level as Dauphin’s. The Steelers’ Power Play is 8th in the MJHL at 17.61% while their Penalty Kill is 9th at 76.05%. Ty Kraus (17G, 34A) leads Selkirk in points with 51. The Steelers are 2-2-0 on the road since the start of 2016.
