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 don’t know if it was more relief for me that [Stamkos] scored or the power play scored. It was a whole compilation of Alka Seltzer.
