The Bulldog’s woes continue to pile up. Hamilton dropped a 5-4 decision to the Ottawa 67’s for their fourth straight loss.
The 67’s came out strong, scoring two goals-one on a power play-before the Bulldogs were able to put one in the back of the net, cutting Ottawa’s lead to 2-1 at the end of the first.
Hamilton gained some momentum and scored two goals 76 seconds apart to put them on top 3-2. Matt Luff scored on a penalty shot, while Adam Laishram scored his first of the season.
The lead was short-lived. Ottawa would score two quick goals of their own, re-taking the lead at 4-3 after two periods.
The 67’s scored a big goal in the third to take a two goal lead, but the Bulldogs weren’t out just yet. The Dogs fought back, and Marian Studenic scored to cut the lead to 5-4.
Hamilton had some chances with the goalie on the bench in the final seconds but couldn’t get the equalizer.
Hamilton is now 0-3-1-0 in their last four games while their season record dropped to 7-5-1-0.
