Oil Caps to clash with Kings

A pair of Westman teams will go head-to-head for the Manitoba Junior Hockey League’s Sher-Wood Division title, with the best-of-seven series starting Sunday.

The Dauphin Kings will host the Virden Oil Capitals in the series opener at 7:30 p.m. The Oil Capitals will host Game 2 on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.

The Kings reached the division final by sweeping the OCN Blizzard, while the Oil Capitals completed their comeback from a 2-0 series deficit late Wednesday night with a 4-3 double-overtime win over the Swan Valley Stampeders to clinch that best-of-seven semifinal 4-2.

In Swan River, Artsiom Kalashnikov set up Corey Haverstick’s game-tying goal and then scored the series-clincher for Virden 14:49 into the second extra period. Elkhorn’s Curtis Oliver also had a goal and an assist for Virden, while Souris’s Ben Williams supplied the other marker and Adam Iwan made 56 saves.

Dylan Hykawy had a goal and two helpers while Bo Sigurdson and Max Flanagan both found the back of the net for the Stampeders.

Meanwhile, on Thursday night, the host Steinbach Pistons scored three power-play goals to win Game 7 of their Addison Division final 4-0 over the Portage Terriers.

Justin Baudry and Nicholas Kobelka both had a goal and an assist for the Pistons, who won all four of their home games to take the series 4-3 and advance to the division final against the Winnipeg Blues. Garrett Schmitz and Justin Augert also scored for the defending league champions, while Zach Rakochy made 29 saves for the shutout.

Talor Joseph stopped 45 shots for the Terriers, 23 of which came in the first period.
