On The Brink

An early goal by the Winnipeg Blues and penalty trouble put the Dauphin Kings behind the eight ball in the first period and they were never able to fully recover, losing 4-1 in game three of the MJHL Final.

The score may not show it, but the Kings actually controlled a good part of the hockey game. The disappointing thing for them was the fact they couldn't finish anything. From posts to bounces to key saves by Byron Spriggs, Dauphin just couldn't catch a break and now they find themselves down 3-0 in the league championship series. 

Dillan McCombie (3) had the lone goal for the Kings Friday night late in the third.

Credit still has to be given to Winnipeg, they came out and got the job done early. 

When everything was said and done the Kings were 1 for 6 on the Power Play and 7 for 8 on the Penalty Kill. 

Michael Stiliadis started the game, but did not make it through the first period. He allowed 3 goals on 7 shots. Jordan Piccolino replaced him and stopped 17 of 18 he faced. Dauphin had 32 on Winnipeg's net, that included a very strong second period where the out shot the Blues 17-7. 

So the Kings find themselves in a not too familiar position, down 3-0 in a series. If Dauphin can stick to their game on Sunday and take everything shift by shift and period by period, they can start to chip away at the Blues' series lead. However, if the Kings get in to penalty issues or start playing individually they'll go into the Western Canada Cup on a four game losing streak.  

Hopefully for the Kings' sake the town of Dauphin rallies behind them on Sunday. It would be nice to see a full arena in the playoffs this year. If there's a time when the Kings need support, it's right now.

Ticket Office at Credit Union Place is open from 11am to 5pm Saturday and 11am to game time on Sunday. 

Opening face off Sunday is 7:30pm.
