January 22, 2018 - Ontario Hockey League (OHL) - Hamilton Bulldogs News Release

HAMILTON, ONTARIO. - It was possibly the most anticipated game of the season....and it didn't disappoint as the Bulldogs and Frontenacs put on a show Friday night in Kingston with Hamilton coming out with a 3-2 overtime win.

The 1st period could have been the best period of hockey this season. The teams went end to end with Grade-A chances at both ends, but the stars of the opening 20-minutes were the goaltenders as Kaden Fulcher and Jeremy Helvig kept the game scoreless.

The Bulldogs got on the board first as Matthew Strome (27) finished off a 3-way passing play on the power-play to give Hamilton a 1-0 lead. Gabriel Vilardi then took over scoring two power-play goals, one on a 5-on-3, to give Kingston a 2-1 lead after forty minutes.

Hamilton would need a comeback to get out of Kinston with a win and it started early in the 3rd period as Robert Thomas (21) got his first as a Bulldog at the 37-second mark to tie the game 2-2. The Dogs kept the pressure on, but the game went to overtime where Brandon Saigeon (24) stepped up into the role of hero at 3:41 of OT with his 7th game winning goal of the season.

3 STARS: 1). Jeremy Helvig (KGN); 2). Kaden Fulcher (HAM) 3). Gabriel Vilardi (KGN).
