Hamilton Bulldogs vs Syracuse Crunch @ Bell Centre, 7:30pm est.
Tonight the Hamilton Bulldogs play the Syracuse Crunch in the second of the back-to-back games. The dogs will play their first of only two appearances at the Bell Centre this year. The Crunch and the Dogs meet four times this year, the Crunch took the first game at Copps Coliseum 3-0 in a dominating fashion. Robert Mayer stopped 30 of 32 shots he faced in a pretty solid performance, as he was featured as my 3rd star from last weeks performances. Riku Helenius of the Syracuse Crunch stopped all 23 shots he faced to earn himself a shutout and Head coach Jon Cooper got his 100th AHL win of his career.
