The Dauphin Kings are on the ice tonight for their final preseason test.
They'll welcome the Waywayseecappo Wolverines to town for the second meeting between the clubs. Earlier this week, the Kings came back twice to beat Wayway, 3-2.
"For the most part, pretty much what's dressing tonight will be dressing on opening day," said Mitch Topinka, Assistant Coach. "It's also our one last look at a couple guys who want to make this team."
The Kings have been rolling in the pre-season so far. With five games under their belt, the team is 4-1 heading into this tilt.
Offence has been the name of the game so far for the Kings, as they've scored 20 goals. On the other side of the puck, the Kings have allowed just 13 goals.
If you look back at the games you'll notice how dominant the Kings been in the third period. 13 of the team's 20 goals have come in the final frame, and they've only allowed 4 goals in the third.
"I'm happy with how things are going and I know Doug is as well," said Topinka. "We're happy with how things are coming along and guys are getting close. Obviously, it's the pre-season so we have to keep this going, but we're really pleased with how things have gone."
If you've missed any of the two previous Kings home pre-season games this year, tonight will be your final chance until next Saturday's Home Opener.
And if you're wondering if you should go to the game or not, Mitch knows why you should.
"We have some unfinished business with Wayway because we weren't happy with how we played them earlier this week," said Topinka. "It's going to be a solid lineup in there, and it's your chance to see what the Dauphin Kings are going to be made of this year."
The puck drops tonight at 7:30. Ticket prices are $5 for ages 13 & up. 12 & under are free of charge.
