Mike Blunden ends nine-round shootout as Bulldogs beat Crunch 2-1

SYRACUSE, N.Y. - Mike Blunden scored the lone goal in the ninth round of the shootout to lift the Hamilton Bulldogs past the Syracuse Crunch 2-1 in American Hockey League play Saturday.

Louis Leblanc had the only goal in regulation for the Bulldogs (26-29-5), while Robert Mayer stopped 31 shots and all nine shooters in the shootout.

Mayer also blanked Yanni Gourde on a penalty shot.

Brett Connolly was the only player to beat Mayer for the Crunch (24-26-10), and Kristers Gudlevskis finished with 28 saves.

Quote of the Day

Unless he really collapses, I don't see him going anywhere. I've been very impressed with his composure and maturity. Once the regular season started, he was a different guy; it was like game on and almost as if he's been around for a long time.
