A quiet Monday for local sports. The Dauphin Kings continue to await their opponent for the MJHL Championship Series. The Addison Division Final is going to a fifth game in Steinbach after the Pistons staved off elimination last night in Winnipeg against the Blues. Whoever wins the series will automatically punch their ticket to the Western Canada Cup because the Kings are the hosts. The MJHL Final is expected to begin later this week for the Dauphin Kings, but they won't start the series at home. The Addison Division has home ice this year.
They aren't mathematically eliminated just yet, but all of the remaining games for the Winnipeg Jets this season are must wins.
