Hamilton Bulldogs Game Thread: Bulldogs vs Ice Caps

Richard Wolowicz

The St. John's Ice Caps are in town tonight to take on the Hamilton Bulldogs. The Bulldogs look to gain a crucial 2 points heading into the holiday break.

Tonight, the Hamilton Bulldogs (10-12-1-2) take on the St. John's Ice Caps (13-15-0-1) at home. This will be the third of eight meetings between the teams, after splitting back to back games in St John's back in November. The Bulldogs are back at home after a short western road trip that saw them play 4 games in the Midwest, visiting Chicago, Rockford, Milwaukee and Peoria, while posting a 1-2-0-1 record on the trip. The Ice Caps are visiting Hamilton after losing 3-2 to the Adirondack Phantoms on Wednesday night.

Brendan Gallagher (8 goals, 8 assists) currently leads the Bulldogs with 16 points. Derek Meech (3 goals, 13 assists) leads the Ice Caps. Mike Blunden has 4 points (3 goals, 1 assist) in his last 6 games and also scored the game winner on Saturday against the Ice Hogs, which also happened to be his birthday.

Tonight's game will be broadcast live on Sportsnet beginning at 7:30PM Eastern time.
