BULLDOGS BEAT LAKE ERIE THURSDAY/Desharnais-3 assists

Dec 30th, 2010 | By | Category: Hockey-General News, St. John's IceCaps

The Hamilton Bulldogs defeated the Lake Erie Monsters 3-2 in front of 4,672 fans at Copps Coliseum on Thursday night. David Desharnais earned three assists tonight and now ranks second on the Bulldogs all-time points list with 182 points in his Hamilton career.  With 45 points in 36 games, he also has a four point lead on Binghamton’s Corey Locke atop the AHL scoring race.  Desharnais has 10 goals and 35 assists.

 Dustin Boyd broke a 2-2 tie with a power play goal 1:17 into the third period. Boyd has now collected 10 goals in seven games since joining Hamilton from the Canadiens on Dec. 16 after scoring just once in 10 appearances for the Canadiens.

Brandon Nash and Desharnais earned assists on the goal by Boyd, which was already his sixth power play marker and third game-winner of the season.

J.T. Wyman and Ben Maxwell also tallied goals for the Bulldogs, and Desharnais earned an assist on all three scores to run his AHL-best point total to 45 (10-35-45) in 35 contests.

Hamilton rookie goaltender Robert Mayer (7-6-2) stopped 32 of 34 shots to snap a personal two-game losing skid, and the North Division-leading Bulldogs earned their 20th victory as a team (20-10-1-4).
