Mar 30th, 2011 | By | Category: Hockey-General News, St. John's IceCaps

Nigel Dawes scored three goals and an assist to lead the Hamilton Bulldogs to a 4-1 win over the Abbotsford Heat in a game played at Copps Coliseum Wednesday night.  Dawes linemate Aaron Palushaj scored the othr goal and added two assists. 

Hamilton’s top line of Dawes, Palushaj and Dustin Boyd combined for 14 points in back-to-back wins against Abbotsford.

Dawes leads the American Hockey league with 38 goals.    It was  his second hat trick in a Bulldogs uniform, following an identical three-goal, four-point performance on Mar. 2 vs. Milwaukee. The 26-year-old racked up a season-high four goals in a Jan. 5 game vs. Toronto as a member of the Wolves.

Hamilton goaltender Drew MacIntyre stopped 36 of 37 shots to get the win.

Hamilton is now on its first three-game winning streak since a season-best six-game run from Jan. 12-26, and the Bulldogs (39-26-2-7, 87 points) have moved to within one point of second-place Lake Erie in the North Division while pulling seven points up on Toronto for the division’s last guaranteed playoff spot

The Bulldogs will travel to Cleveland for a 7:30 p.m. matchup against Lake Erie  on Friday, April 1st before returning to Copps Coliseum for their final regular season home game against the Manitoba Moose at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday.
