Dustin Tokarski perfect in Hamilton Bulldogs 2-0 win over Lake Erie Monsters

CLEVELAND - Dustin Tokarski stopped all 31 shots he faced as the Hamilton Bulldogs blanked the Lake Erie Monsters 2-0 on Saturday in American Hockey League action.

Greg Pateryn and Michael Bournival both scored in the first period to give Hamilton (22-27-6) all the offence it needed.

Calvin Pickard made 26 saves for Lake Erie (26-22-9).

Both teams struggled on the power play. The Bulldogs couldn't score on their three man advantages, while the Monsters couldn't connect on their five power plays.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
