In one of their annual “School Days” promotions, the Hamilton Bulldogs lost to the Chicago Wolves 4-1 Tuesday morning.  The game, scheduled for 10.00 am, drew over 6500, most of them school kids.

Goalscoring, or a lack of it, has become the Hamilton Bulldogs most recent problem.  In their last six games, five of them losses, the Bulldogs have scored a total of ten goals.  Alexander Avtsin scored the lone goal for the Bulldogs, his third of the season.  Tim Miller scored twice for the Wolves, a farm team of the Vancouver Canucks.

Hamilton has now lost five of six games scoring only ten goals over that span.   They were outshot for the ninth time in 12 games.

The Bulldogs conclude their six game homestand against Grand Rapids Friday.
