BULLDOGS LOSE SHOOTOUT IN ROCHESTER FRIDAY

Nov 2nd, 2012 | By | Category: Hamilton Bulldogs, Hockey-General News

The Hamilton Bulldogs came from behind a 2-0 deficit in the third period but then lost 3-2 in a shootout to the Americans in Rochester Friday night.

Brendan Gallagher and Darryl Boyce brought the Bulldogs back after the Americans had staked themselves to the lead on goals by Zemgus Girgensons in the first period and Kevin Porter on an early third period power play.

The Americans outshot the Bulldogs 36-31 in the game but Hamilton goaltender Robert Mayer gave up three goals on the four shots he faced in the overtime.  (Box Score & Hamilton Scoring Statistics Below)

It was another very good night for Brendan Gallagher, who not only scored a goal on a tip in off a shot by Brendon Nash, but also handled himself very well in a fight with Rochester’s Frederick Roy (Patrick’s son).    Also having notable games were veteran Zack Stortini and Gabriel Dumont.  And, while he won’t be a top six player in the NHL, Blake Geoffrion is showing that he’s too good for the American Hockey League and probably will be fitting into the Canadiens roster again if/when the NHL gets over it’s labour problems.

The teams will meet again Saturday night at Copps Coliseum and then again next Friday at the Bell Centre.
