Kings blank Pistons, sending championship series to game seven

The Dauphin Kings shutout the Steinbach Pistons 2-0 on Sunday night in game six, sending the MJHL Championship Series to a game seven winner take all.

Dauphin stormed out of the gate in the opening twenty minutes and were all over Steinbach, outshooting the Pistons 20-5 but were unable to solve Pistons goaltender, Will Hambley.

Just over five minutes into the 2nd, hometown product, Garrett Hrechka tipped in a Colby Jaquet point shot through Hambley to give the Kings a 1-0 lead.

Holding on to that 1-0 lead in the 3rd, Dauphin continued to shut down Steinbach and gave the Pistons virtually nothing to work with.

With under three minutes remaining in the game, Brayden Dube slammed on the breaks behind the net and made a slick no look backhand feed to an open Logan Calder who beat Hambley at the side of the net, giving the Kings a 2-0 lead.

Steinbach would try to make a late push but Carson Cherepak would once again stand tall in the Kings net, stopping 27/27 for the shutout to help guide Dauphin to a 2-0 victory.

Will Hambley gave Steinbach an opportunity to stay in the game, stopping 45/47 shots sent his way. Dauphin went 0/2 on the man-advantage while Steinbach failed to score on their lone opportunity.

With the series now tied at 3-3, the 1st and 2nd place teams from the regular season will meet in game seven on Wednesday night in Steinbach with puck drop set for 7:30 at the T.G. Smith Centre with the Turnbull Memorial Trophy on the line.
