The Dogs fell behind early in this one and couldn't recover as the Kings skated to a 5-1 win.
It was 1-0 Kings just over two minutes in when James Neal found his own rebound after an initial breakaway stop by Matt Larose. The Kings blew the game open with goals just 8 seconds apart four minutes into the second, the first coming on a bad break as Carter Shinkaruk put a wrist shot on net that ramped up off a Bulldog stick and up and over Larose. Off the next face off the Kings raced in on the attack and made it 3-0 as Evan Richardson tapped one into an open net on a core crease feed.
The Dogs made a game of it again four minutes later when Dylan Nowakowski took over the team scoring lead blowin a slapped through Maguire. That's all the Dogs could muster though as the Kings added one more late in the period just 5 seconds into a power play as Cohen Adair walked in alone off the draw and tucked it home.
The Kings completed the scoring with just over a minute to go in the game on a 5 on 3 power play as Teagan Waugh tipped a point shot home for the 5-1 final as it looked for a moment that the teams might play to their 4th straight 4-1 game this year.
The Dogs are back at it Wednesday night in Coquitlam before they finally return to Home Ice Friday and Saturday to host Cowichan and Langley.
