BULLDOGS TAKE GAME 1 WITH A 6-3 WIN OVER OTTAWA

The Hamilton Bulldogs opened up their first-round playoff series with a 6-3 home-ice win over the Ottawa 67’s Thursday night.

Not a great start for the Bulldogs as the visitors from Ottawa had the early jump keeping Hamilton on their heels. The 67’s got their first power-play and took advantage at 13:16 as Sam Bitten (1) buried a rebound. The Bulldogs went on the power-play and tied the game 1-1 as Matthew Strome (1) finished off a nice 3-way passing play at 17:45.

It was a wild 2nd period as Hamilton out-scored Ottawa 3-2 with an end-to-end goal from Ben Gleason (1), Robert Thomas (1) fired home a rebound capped off with Brandon Saigeon (1) making no mistake on a perfect pass from Thomas as the Black and Gold finished forty minutes with a 4-3 lead.  Both Ottawa goals were scored by Noel Hoefenmayer (1, 2).

The Bulldogs got an insurance goal at 8:16 of the 3rd period as Saigeon (2) scored on the power-play to make it 5-3 with Thomas (2) putting the exclamation point on his 4-point night with an empty netter at 19:33.

Hamilton out-shot Ottawa 25-23 as Bulldogs goalie Kaden Fulcher picked up his first OHL playoff win.

67’s goal scorers were Sam Bitten (1) and Noel Hoefenmayer (1, 2).
