The Dauphin Kings are back on the ice today, after a huge win on Saturday against the Steinbach Pistons, and now they're preparing for the OCN Blizzard, on Wednesday night.
"We're hoping that win will be a big boost for our group going into Wednesday," said Mitch Giguere, Interim Head Coach and GM of the Kings. "Now, it's just about getting back on the ice, and having a couple hard days of practice, to prepare for OCN."
Special teams was a big factor in the Kings win on Saturday. The Kings went 1-4 on the powerplay, and looked very impressive on the penalty kill, going 3-3.
"We've struggled giving up several good chances, shorthanded, while on the PP," said Giguere. "It's just about reading the play better and reacting. We found a way to win the game, and at the end of the day, that's the most important thing."
