The Portage Terriers face off with the Dauphin Kings tonight at Stride Place. The Dogs have won three games in a row, as have their opponents.

Both teams sit in third place in their respective divisions. Portage has clinched their spot in the playoffs, and Dauphin is definitely in reach. A loss for Neepawa tonight would make it nearly impossible for Dauphin to fall out of a playoff spot.

The Kings have largely scored by committee, with only 4 players crossing the 30-point mark. The Terriers have been a little more successful with 2 players with 40 points and 6 more with 30.

Dauphin has also gotten outstanding goaltending from Cole Sheffield, as well as rookie netminder Austin Seibel. The Terriers' masked men have had an equally solid season, with Jayden Catellier leading the way in starts, and Gavin Renwick standing tall when called upon.

The teams have identical records in their last 10 games, each 7-2-0-1.

This will be the third meeting between the teams this season. Each team has won one game.

Puck drop is 7:30 this evening in Portage.
