CLEVELAND - Nick Sorkin's first-career goal stood up as the winner as the Hamilton Bulldogs edged the host Lake Erie Monsters 2-1 on Tuesday in American Hockey League play.

Sorkin broke a 1-1 deadlock at 2:34 of the third period when he tipped a Sven Andrighetto wrist shot past Lake Erie goaltender Calvin Pickard.

Joonas Nattinen opened the scoring for the Bulldogs (33-34-8) at 10:18 of the second period.

Andrew Agozzino replied for the Monsters (30-33-11) at 13:30 of the second while on the power play.

The Bulldogs went 0 for 2 on the power play while the Monsters went 1 for 2.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
