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

You get more opportunity, and at the end of the day those are the times you've got to step up and show what you're made of. Together as a team, that's how you win games. I think we stuck together. That's kind of our philosophy here. We have good leadership and good guys to lean on.
