Penalties have haunted the Dauphin Kings all series against the Blizzard.

On Saturday, they once again did. The Blizzard scored two power play goals and held on late as they downed the Kings, 3-2, in game 5 of their first-round Turnbull Cup playoffs series.

In penalty trouble in the first, Sebastian Hamming and Ethan Bibeau scored, both of which came on the man advantage as the Blizzard opened up a 2-0 lead. Sheldon Shyiak would respond for the Kings with his first of the playoffs with just less than seven minutes left in the first to trim the deficit to one.

After a scoreless second period, Adam Belzil batted in a rebound early in the third to give the Blizzard a 3-1 lead. Naaman Hofer would backhand a rebound in to cut Dauphin's deficit to 3-2; however, they would not get any closer.

A late penalty from Ashton Paul with just more than two minutes left would seal this game as the Blizzard won a third straight game to take a three games to two series lead.

Dauphin is now on the brink of elimination as they get set to host game 6 at Credit Union Place on Monday evening at 7:30. You can listen to the game with Darnell Duff and Jeff Henson, opening with the pregame show at 7:10.
