The Dauphin Kings failed to start on time, they got into some very early penalty trouble and it costed them dearly on Saturday night.

Playing an important home game against the Blizzard, Dauphin lost to the team they're chasing in the standings, 5-3. Dauphin picked up two early penalties which saw the Blizzard go up by a pair of goals not even three minutes into the contest.

Alex Senf cut the deficit in half late in the first; however, that is as close as Dauphin got. The Blizzard tacked on three more goals to take a 5-1 lead. Senf scored his second of the game and Cayden Glover also scored in the first, but the Kings wouldn't come any closer.

The loss was a big dagger in Dauphin's chances of earning home ice advantage for the first round of the playoffs. They're now seven points back of the Blizzard with just four games left this season, one of which comes on Wednesday in The Pas.
