HAMILTON (CP) - The Chicago Wolves threw a roadblock in front of the Hamilton Bulldogs' trip to the Calder Cup.

Veteran goaltender Fred Brathwaite stopped all 37 shots he faced and Niko Dimitrakos scored on the power play as the Wolves beat the Dogs 1-0 at Copps Coliseum to stave off elimination in their best-of-seven American Hockey League Western Conference final.

The Dogs still lead the series 3-1 and can move on to the final with a win Saturday at Copps. If the Wolves win again, the series would go back to Chicago for Game 6, and if necessary Game 7 on Monday and Wednesday.
