Stefan Chaput scores shootout winner for Hamilton in 2-1 victory over Lake Erie

CLEVELAND - Stefan Chaput scored the decisive shootout goal as the league-worst Hamilton Bulldogs edged the Lake Erie Monsters 2-1 in American Hockey League play Saturday.

Chaput's goal came in the ninth round of a shootout that had only featured two prior goals.

Gabriel Dumont's short-handed goal gave the Bulldogs (14-21-6) the lead at 17:10 in the second period.

But Bill Thomas tied the game for Lake Erie (23-16-4) on the power play at 6:47 in the third.

Hamilton goaltender Cedrick Desjardins made 22 saves, while at the other end Sami Aittokallio stopped 33 shots.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
