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

That's today's game. That's one of the things you have to deal with when you're a championship team. Guys are going to earn more money based on their performance and what they've achieved, [and] deservedly so. [Saad] falls into that category.
