3rd Period Scoring Push Bulldogs Past Monsters

Scoresheet

Hamilton scored four unanswered third period goals en route to handing the Lake Erie Monsters (12-10-0-1) a 6-2 loss Sunday at Copps Coliseum.  Bryan Lerg scored his team-leading 11th goal for the Monsters in the loss.  Markus Lauridsen also added a goal for the Monsters, who are back in action Wednesday night in Rochester.

On the power play, Hamilton (12-10-0-3) struck first when Gabriel Dumont picked up a bouncing puck and sent a low shot past Monsters goalie Calvin Pickard.  The goal gave Hamilton a 1-0 lead at 14:20 of the first period; a lead Hamilton would take into the first intermission.

Nick Tarnasky gave Hamilton a 2-0 lead when he found a loose puck in front of the Monsters net and drove it over the goal line at 5:06 of the second period.

The Monsters countered with a power play goal of their own, cutting the Hamilton lead to 2-1, when Bryan Lerg tipped a Matt Hunwick point shot past Bulldogs goalie Robert Mayer at 14:31 of the second period.  Brett Clark also assisted on the goal in his Monsters debut.

Hamilton got four unanswered goals in 15:21 to start the third period.  Patrick Holland, Stefan Fournier, Dumont, and Louis Leblanc scored to give the Bulldogs a 6-1 lead before Markus Lauridsen scored in the final minute for the Monsters; his second goal of the season, to cut the deficit to 6-2.  Andrew Agozzino assisted on Lauridsen’s goal with 44 seconds left. 

Calvin Pickard stopped 22 of 28 shots for the Monsters; his record is now 7-7-1 in net.  Robert Mayer stopped 29 of 30 Monsters shots; he is 3-5-2 on the season for Hamilton.

The Monsters visit the Rochester Americans Wednesday night at 7:00 PM, and the game can be heard live on AM 1220 WHKW.
