Oct 28th, 2012 | By | Category: Hamilton Bulldogs, Hockey-General News

Centre Blake Geoffrion scored a goal and assisted on the game winner as the Hamilton Bulldogs edged the Abbotsford Heat 2-1 Sunday.  Aaron Palushaj redirected Geoffrion’s shot on a Hamilton Bulldog power play midway through the second period to give the Bulldogs the victory.

Roman Horak scored for the Heat who suffered their first loss in regulation time this season.  Abbotsford is a Calgary Flames affiliate.   The game was played before 2,405 Sunday at Copps Coliseum.    (Box Score & Season Statistics Below)

It was a good night once again for Geoffrion who’s season is off to an excellant start .  He centred what was Hamilton’s most effective forward line with Joonas Nattinen and Michael Blunden.   He also continued to dominate in the faceoff circle.    Also having good nights were goaltender Robert Mayer and defenseman Greg Patteryn.  Hamilton outshot Abbotsford 30-29.

The Bulldogs next game is Friday, November 2nd  in Rochester.
