grand rapids march 10The Grand Rapids Griffins beat the Hamilton Bulldogs for the second time in three nights Sunday night at Copps Coliseum in Hamilton.  Detroit Red Wings prospect Gustav Nyquist scored a goal and added two assists in the game.

Michael Blunden tied the game at 1-1 during a power play early in the third period but four minutes later the Griffins Riley Sheahan scored what proved to be the game winner on a Grand Rapids  power play.

Chad Billens and Brett Skinner also scored for Grand Rapids. Three of their four goals were scored on the power play.

With an assist on the Blunden goal, Joey Tenute extended his point scoring streak to seven games, a season high for the Bulldogs.  Over that stretch he has ten points.   Robert Mayer stopped 44 of 48 Grand Rapids shots.  Mayer also played Saturday in the 3-1 win over Peoria.  In the two games he stopped 85 of 90 shots.

It was the Bulldogs third game in three nights. Their record now is 24-29-6 and they are well removed from playoff contention.

The Bulldogs’ next game is against the IceCaps in St. John’s Newfoundland on Friday, the first of four in a row on the road.
