Brad Malone scores twice as the Monsters beat the Bulldogs in shootout

CLEVELAND - Sami Aittokallio stopped 23 shots through regulation and all three shooters in the shootout as the Lake Erie Monsters edged the visiting Hamilton Bulldogs 3-2 on Friday in American Hockey League action.

Mike Sgarbossa scored the shootout winner for the Monsters (3-3-0) while Brad Malone had two goals.

Nick Tarnasky supplied the offence for the Bulldogs (1-0-2) as Dustin Tokarski turned aside 24-of-26 shots in defeat.

Malone opened the scoring for Lake Erie with a power-play goal late in the first period and then he made it 2-0 for the Monsters with a short-handed goal midway through the second.

Tarnasky cut Lake Erie's lead in half 4:51 into the third period and then tied the game for Hamilton just under four minutes later while on the man advantage.

The Monsters went 1 for 4 on the power play. The Bulldogs scored once on six chances with the man advantage.

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.
