Big 3rd Period Leads the Bulldogs to a 7-2 Win over Petes

January 7, 2018 - Ontario Hockey League (OHL) - Hamilton Bulldogs News Release


HAMILTON, ONTARIO. The Hamilton Bulldogs kicked off their 2018 schedule Wednesday night with a 7-2 win over the visiting Peterborough Petes.

After giving up the opening goal in the last two games, the Bulldogs were determined to have a better start and Will Bitten (13) gave them an early 1-0 lead at 4:37. The Petes responded just 13-seconds later to the tie the game 1-1 only to see Hamilton strike twice to take a 3-1 lead after the opening period with goals from Matthew Strome (22) and Mackenzie Entwistle (5).

After a somewhat freewheeling 1st period, the two teams settled down and concentrated on defense in a scoreless 2nd period.

The Petes gave the Bulldogs a scare early in the 3rd with a power-play goal at the 38-second mark to cut the lead to 3-2, but the Black and Gold scored four un-answered goals to cruise to the 7-2 win. Strome (23), Isaac Nurse (8, 9) and Arthur Kaliyev (16) finished up the scoring.
