BULLDOGS DOWN 2-0 IN OPENING ROUND SERIES AFTER 5-2 LOSS IN GAME 2

The Bulldogs trail their 1st round playoff series with the 67’s two-games-to-nothing after a 5-2 loss Sunday afternoon in Ottawa.

For the second game in a row, Hamilton played well in the 1st period, but special teams were the difference as Ottawa scored one goal short-handed and one on a power-play to take a 2-0 lead.

The Bulldogs got a big goal at 12:54 of the 2nd period as Matthew Strome (2) converted on the power-play, but the 67’s responded with two quick goals, 29-seconds a part, to take a 4-1 lead after two periods.

Ottawa shut things down in the 3rd period and despite a nice individual effort from Isaac Nurse (1) late in the period, the 67’s tacked on a power-play goal in the final minute to make the final 5-2.

The game turned nasty at times as Bulldogs forward Navrin Mutter was assessed a 5-minute match penalty for cross checking in the 1st period while Ottawa’s Kyle Maxsimovich was kicked out of the game in the 3rd period after receiving a 5-minute major and a game misconduct for charging after running over Hamilton goalie Zachary Roy.

Ottawa out-shot the Bulldogs 35-19,

The 67’s were 3-for-4 on the power-play while the Bulldogs went 1-for-8.

Ottawa goal scorers were Mitchell Hoelscher (1), Graeme Clarke (3, 4, 5) and Jack Quinn (1).

3 STARS:

1)  Graeme Clarke (OTT)

2)  Mitchell Hoelscher (OTT)

3)  Cody Clark (OTT)

The series now shifts back to Hamilton for Games 3 and 4 Tuesday March 26th and Wednesday March 27th at FirstOntario Centre at 7pm.
