Bulldogs Fight Back for Win over Steelheads
HAMILTON, ONTARIO. The Hamilton Bulldogs fought back from two goal deficits twice before pulling out an exciting 6-5 shoot-out win over the Mississauga Steelheads Wednesday night.
Not the start the Bulldogs were looking for as the Steelhead went up 2-0, but Tim Fleischer (6) got one back to cut the deficit to 2-1 after 20 minutes.
The Bulldogs got back to work in the 2nd period as Logan Morrison (9) tied things up at 2-2 and then each team scored once late including Arthur Kaliyev's (43) power-play goal with only 36.6 seconds left in the period to send the teams to the dressing rooms knotted a 3-3.
Before the half-way point of the 3rd period the Steelheads had restored their 2-goal lead but Avery Hayes (6) scored to make it 5-4 and then Arthur Kaliyev's (44) second of the night sent the game into overtime.
Bulldogs goalie Zachary Roy stopped a penalty-shot in overtime as the game would need a shoot-out to decide a winner. Hamilton's captain Matthew Strome was the one to score in the shoot-out as Roy stopped all three Steelhead's shooters for the Bulldogs 6-5 win.
1) Matthew Strome (HAM) 2) Logan Morrison (HAM) 3) Keean Washkurak (MISS)
The Bulldogs are back on the road Friday, February night when they visit the Ottawa 67's before returning home to take on the Peterborough Petes at FirstOntario Centre Saturday night at 7pm.
