dumontGabriel Dumont‘s second goal of the night at 13:53 of the third period broke a 1-1 tie and gave the Hamilton Bulldogs a 2-1 victory over the Grand Rapids Griffins Friday night at FirstOntario Centre.

Dumont scored the winning goal on a breakaway pass from linemate Jacob de la Rose.

Dumont’s first goal of the game came at 13:40 of the first period. Hamilton held the lead until Griffins centre Mark Zengerle scored at 5:17 of the third period, spoiling Mike Condon‘s bid for a second shutout in a week.

Condon stopped 20 of 21 shots for the win. Shots on goal favoured Hamilton 34-21.

The victory ended a three game Bulldogs losing streak, all at home. They are now 2-3-0 in their current season-long seven game home stand. The Bulldogs will face the Griffins again Saturday night at FirstOntario Centre.  Grand Rapids is the Detroit Red Wings AHL affiliate.

Notes –

….The game marked the return of defenseman Jarred Tinordi to the Hamilton lineup after an absence of three games following a fight last Friday night in the game against Utica.  Tinordi, who’s most serious injury was a deep cut in his chin, took a regular turn alongside Davis Drewiske wearing a football-style face mask.  Prior to the game Tinordi refered to his injury as “looking worse than it was.

….With RW Christian Thomas still up with the Canadiens, coach Sylvain Lefebvre juggled hisleft win  lines once again moving Jacob de la Rose from his customary centre position to left wing beside Gabriel Dumont and right wing Charles Hudon.  Sven Andrighetto centred the second line between T.J. Hensick and Daniel Carr.

….Goaltender Joey MacDonald was called up to the Canadiens earlier in the day as an emergency replacement for Carey Price.  Mike Condon’s backup for the game was Frank Palazzese who was recalled from Wheeling of the ECHL.

….The Bulldogs still have three players on their injury list including defenseman Magnus Nygren and left wing Connor Crisp both suffering from concussions.  LW Eric Tangradi is out with a wrist injury.   Healthy scratches were defenseman David Makowski and Shane Bakker.
