bulldogs admirals IIThe Hamilton Bulldogs dropped their third straight game on home ice as the Milwaukee Admirals handed them a 4-1 defeat Wednesday night at FirstOntario Centre.

The Nashville Predators affiliate got power play goals from Tristan Grant and Austin Watson in the first period to take a 2-0 lead before Daniel Carr scored his seventh goal of the season to narrow it to 2-1. It stayed that way until Zach Budish made it 3-1 early in the third period. Pontus Åberg closed out the scoring with an empty net goal.

This was the fourth of seven consecutive home games for the Bulldogs, who won the opening game against Utica Friday night and have subsequently lost the next three. They will play the Grand Rapids Griffins on Friday and Saturday night as the home stand continues.

Notes – 

…With the loss the Bulldogs fall below the .500 mark at 16-17-6 after 39 games.  They are 8-10-3 at home.

…General manager Marc Bergevin and members of the Canadiens player development department were in Hamilton to look at the team’s prospects.

…RW  Stefan Fournier played his first game of the season for the Bulldogs.  The Dorval native was recovering from pre-season wrist surgery.  Fournier was recalled from Wheeling of the ECHL earlier in the week after a three game stint in which he registered two points.

…Centre Sven Andrighetto was held off the scoresheet for the second straight game since being sent back to Hamilton by the Canadiens.  He led both teams with four shots on goal in the game.

…Early season scoring sensation Charles Hudon was again held off the scoresheet.  In his last eleven games he has 2 goals and 1 assist.  He continues to lead AHL rookies with 34 pts in 39 games (11g, 23a)

…Right wing Christian Thomas remains on recall with the Canadiens.  He was a healthy scratch for the Canadiens Wednesday night game at Columbus.

Jarred Tinordi missed his third straight game after suffering a minor concussion, facial lacerations and dental issues in a fight during the win over Utica Friday night.  Tinordi took part in the morning skate in a no-contact jersey and wearing a protector for his chin which was cut badly in his fall to the ice during  the incident.

…Along with Tinordi, who other members of the Bulldogs are out with concussions – D-Magnus Nygren and FWD-Connor Crisp.  LW Eric Tangradi has a hand injury.  Healthy scratches were FWD Shane Bakker and D-David Makowski.
