The Kings came out on fire scoring four goals, in the games first seven minutes.
Riese Gaber recorded points in two of the four goals, notching a goal, and an assist.
William Brochu scored for the Terriers to trim the deficit, as the Kings led, 4-1 after 20 minutes.
The Terriers scored twice in the second period, but so did the Dauphin Kings, including Matt Pitchenese who picked up his second point as he assisted on Brendan Arnold's breakaway goal.
After 40 minutes, the Kings had a commanding 6-3 lead.
The Terriers made it very interesting in the third by scoring two goals, but the deficit they were in after 40 proved to be too much, as the Dauphin Kings will head back home with a 6-5 win.
The Kings return to the ice on Tuesday night as they begin a home and home with the Neepawa Natives. Puck drop is set for 7:30 at Credit Union Place.
Dauphin was narrowly outshot, 38-35.
