ANOTHER BULLDOGS LOSS-at Grand Rapids

Feb 16th, 2011 | By | Category: Hockey-General News, St. John's IceCaps

The Hamilton Bulldogs lost their fifth game in a row and their seventh of the last eight games, bowing to the Grand Rapids Griffins 5-3 in Grand Rapids Wednesday night.

Because of injuries, five members of the Bulldogs are with the parent Canadiens getting ready to play the Edmonton Oilers Thursday.

In the losing cause, defenseman Mathieu Carle and Aaron Palushaj each scored their tenth goals of the season. Frederick St. Denis also scored for the Bulldogs.  Palushaj has been the only consistant Hamilton scorer recently, recording ten points over his last twelve games. 

After scoring 14 goals in his first 25 games, most of them while playing on a line centred by David Desharnais, Dustin Boyd recorded his first two assists as a Bulldog. Boyd, who was acquired by the Canadiens in the trade for Sergei Kostitsyn, was assigned to the Bulldogs by the club in November.
