In the first it would be the home team the Kings getting the only goal on a nice individual effort by Keaton Leininger as he would walk around a couple of Stampeders and then snap it by goaltender Brett Evans for his 10th of the season to give the Kings a 1-0 lead after 1 period. Shots 15-12 Dauphin.
There would be some good chances from both sides in the 2nd, but once again it would be the Kings getting the only goal as Leininger would add his 2nd of the night, this time on the PP for his 11th to give his team 2 goal lead, at 2-0 after 40 minutes.
Tyler Garrioch would increase their lead as he would capitalize on a Stamps turnover shorthanded and beat Evans to make it a 3-0 game. But Michael Fortin would take a nice feed from Colton Brausen on a 2 on 1, and direct it by Brandon Holtby for his 9th of the season to cut Swan within 2 at 3-1. But once again it would be Leininger completing his Hat Trick and his 12th of the season to make it 4-1 Kings. The Stamps would get one more but thats as close as they would get as Fortin would add his 2nd of the game but it would end up a 4-2 Kings victory.
