HAMILTON, ONTARIO – Hamilton Bulldogs training camp invitee Andre Morrissette scored the game winner with 34 seconds to play to put Team White past Team Red 3-2 on Monday evening in the Bulldogs’ intrasquad game at Peach King Centre in Grimsby.
After a scoreless first period, both sides opened up with a flurry of goals in the first two minutes of the second period.
Defenceman Morgan Ellis opened the scoring for Team Red at the 30-second mark of the second off a feed from forward Trevor Bruess. Eighteen seconds later, forward Erik Nystrom replied for Team White, with defenceman Nathan McIver and forward Jordan Owens collecting assists. And just one minute and four seconds after that, at 1:52 of the second period, forward Joonas Nattinen put Team Red ahead again, with an assist going to forward Louis Leblanc.
Team White forward Alex Belzile rounded out the second-period scoring at 7:18 of the period after he intercepted a clearing attempt by goaltender Mike Condon at the blueline and ripped the puck five-hole past Condon.
The third period was scoreless until forward Andre Morrissette banged one past Condon with 34 seconds to go to seal the victory for Team White.
Robert Mayer started in goal for Team White, allowing two goals. Chris Festarini took over midway through the second, shutting out Team Red the rest of the way. Peter Delmas started in goal for Team Red, allowing one goal. Mike Condon gave up two in the second half of the game.
