abbotsfordThe Abbotsford Heat scored three goals in the span of fifty-three seconds in the first period and coasted to a 5-1 win over the Hamilton Bulldogs Saturday night at FirstOntario Centre.

The Bulldogs had a 10-3 shots on goal advantage when the roof fell in on them. Former Bulldog Corey Locke opened the scoring on a power play at 14:28. Nineteen seconds later Chad Billins scored on Dustin Tokarski to make it 2-0. At that point Hamilton head coach Sylvain Lefebvre called a time out. It took only 34 seconds after play resumed for Ben Street to make it 3-0. In the second period Sven Baertschi scored on a power play to make 4-0.

Nathan Beaulieu scored on a power play for the only Hamilton goal, but an empty net goal from Max Reinhart closed it out.

Shots on goal were 38-29 in favour of Hamilton.

Notes –

….Having completed his three game conditioning stint with the Bulldogs, the Canadiens re-called Michael Bournival. He will join the team in Boston Sunday. Bournival had five shots on goal in the game. He had two goals and an assist in the three games.

….Healthy scratches in the game – G-Robert Mayer; D-Nathan McIver; RW-Patrick Holland; RW-Stefan Fournier; C-Robert Czarnik. Defenseman Darren Dietz will miss the rest of the season with a torn hamstring.

….Monday the Bulldogs will leave on a nine game – 18 day road trip starting Tuesday in Austin Texas and concluding in St. John’s Newfoundland.

…..With the loss the Bulldogs drop to nine points out of the AHL’s Western Conference final playoff berth currently held by the Rochester Americans with 12 games remaining on their schedule. The Bulldogs almost certainly will miss the playoffs for the third straight year.
