Bulldogs slay Monsters 2-1 in a shootout

The Bulldogs hung on to beat the Monsters 2-1 in a shootout on Saturday night.

USA TODAY Sports

The Bulldogs defeated the Lake Erie Monsters 2-1 in a shootout on Saturday night in Cleveland, snapping their 10 game road losing streak.

Both teams were strong defensively, and after a scoreless first period, the Bulldogs lead 9-3 in shots, holding Lake Erie to a season low 3 first period shots.

The Bulldogs would get on the board late in the second, when Monsters' goalie Sami Aittokallio gave away the puck behind his own net to Gabriel Dumont who put it into the empty net. The goal was shorthanded, and Dumont's team leading 13th goal of the year. After two it was 1-0 with the Bulldogs opening a big lead in shots, leading 27-10 going into the third.

In the third period, the Monsters would get on the board on a powerplay goal from Bill Thomas. Thomas finished off a pretty passing play by firing it over the shoulder of Cedrick Desjardins, off the crossbar and in.

After overtime solved nothing, the two teams took part in a 9 round shootout. Nathan Beaulieu and Stefan Chaput scored for the Bulldogs, while Mike Sgarbossa scored for the Monsters.
