Colin Smith scores twice, Lake Erie Monsters beat Hamilton Bulldogs 4-1

CLEVELAND - Centre Colin Smith scored twice as the Lake Erie Monsters turned the tables on the Hamilton Bulldogs with a 4-1 victory on Friday in American Hockey League play.

The Bulldogs (10-10-3) won by that same 4-1 score in their previous game, when the teams met last Saturday in Hamilton.

Smith opened the scoring for Lake Erie (12-9-1) with his third goal of the season at 4:54 of the first period, and he made it 4-0 on the power play at 1:38 of the third. Joey Hishon and Matt Hunwick got the other Lake Erie goals.

Centre Maxime Macenauer spoiled Calvin Pickard's shutout bid with a power-play goal at 16:45 of the third period. It was his second goal of the season.

Pickard finished with 21 saves. Dustin Tokarski stopped 25 shots for the Monsters.

Hamilton was 1 for 4 on the power play, while Lake Erie connected on 3 of 6 attempts with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
