BULLDOGS COME UP SHORT AGAIN AGAINST RANGERS

A heartbreaking loss for the Hamilton Bulldogs Saturday as they drop a second 4-3 decision to the Kitchener Rangers in just over a week.

The Bulldogs came out with urgency right off the drop of the puck and had the visiting Rangers back on their heels on a couple of occasions. Rookie Arthur Kaliyev (23) buried a back-hand at 8:34 to give Hamilton a 1-0 lead.

The Bulldogs started the 2nd period with a 5-on-3 power-play and took full advantage. Arthur Kaliyev (24) scored at the 31-second mark followed by a Jack Hanley (2) power-play goal just over a minute later to make it 3-0 for the Black and Gold. Then it was the Rangers turn on the power-play and they connected twice to cut the Hamilton lead to 3-2 after two periods.

Kitchener would not be denied in the 3rd as they tied the game 3-3 with a shorthanded goal at 5:48 with the game winner coming with just 37-seconds left. The Bulldogs Will Bitten was given a chance to tie the game with 13.5-seconds remaining as he was hauled down on a break-a-way, but the puck bounced on the penalty-shot and his shot went wide.

Hamilton out-shot Kitchener 40-24.

Rangers goal scorers were Connor Bunnaman (21), Adam Mascherin (35), Riley Damiani (17) and Nick McHugh (10).

3 STARS:

1)  Mario Culina (KIT)

2)  Logan Brown (KIT)

3)  Arthur Kaliyev (HAM)

With the loss, the Bulldogs season record drops to 33-14-3-3.

It doesn’t get any easier as the #1 team in the country comes to Hamilton on Sunday as the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds are in at FirstOntario Centre for a 2 o’clock matinee.
