Paetsch scores winner in 10th round of shootout as Griffins edge Bulldogs

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - Nathan Paetsch scored the winner in the 10th round of the shootout as the Grand Rapids Griffins edged the visiting Hamilton Bulldogs 2-1 on Saturday in American Hockey League action.

Andrej Nestrasil opened the scoring for the Griffins (45-21-6) just 3:03 into the first period.

Grand Rapids carried a one-goal lead all the way until the 3:52 mark of the third period when Maxime Macenauer responded for Hamilton with a power-play goal.

The Griffins had a great opportunity to regain the lead late in the third when Bulldogs (31-33-7) defenceman Drew Schiestel took a double minor for high sticking.

Hamilton goaltender Dustin Tokarski, however, shut the door and earned his team a single point and second star of the game by stopping 36-of-37 shots.

Grand Rapids netminder Tom McCollum made 22 saves for the victory.

The Griffins went 0 for 5 on the power play while the Bulldogs went 1 for 3.

Quote of the Day

I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
