 Game Recap:

On Sunday, the Winnipeg Jets acquired goaltender Peter Budaj from the Montreal Canadiens. The trade also included two players participating in the Mary’s Cup meaning forwards Patrick Holland and Eric Tangradi had to switch dressing rooms just prior to the game. Tangradi wore No. 45 in his first game for Hamilton.

The Bulldogs took advantage of offensive zone pressure after the expiration of a powerplay to get on the board first with a goal from defenceman Joe Finley at the 9:14 mark of the first period.

The penalty-killers were put to work in the second period as the Dogs ran into penalty trouble.  Bulldogs goaltender Joey MacDonald and his IceCaps counterpart, Connor Hellebuyck, ensured that just one goal was on the scoreboard after 40 minutes.

The strong play of both goalies continued in the third period. Daniel Carr gave the Bulldogs some breathing room with a goal midway in the third frame. Less than a minute later Riley Brace notched a shorthanded goal. Brace added an empty-netter to seal the win and the series victory in St. John’s.
