Mike Condon - Fourth Shutout of the Season

Mike Condon – Fourth Shutout of the Season

The Hamilton Bulldogs scored four first period goals and goaltender Mike Condon did the rest in a 4-0 win over the Charlotte Checkers Friday night at FirstOntario Centre in Hamilton.

The convincing win ended a three game losing streak, all of them on the road and kept Hamilton in the race for the final playoff berths in the AHL’s Western Conference.

Eric Tangradi and Daniel Carr each scored twice as the Bulldogs opened up their 4-0 lead.

Condon stopped 24 Charlotte shots en route to his fourth shutout of the season.

Charlotte is the AHL affiliate of the Carolina Hurricanes.

This was the first game of a three game-in-three-day weekend for the Bulldogs. They’ll play Charlotte again Saturday night and then travel to Utica New York to play the Comets on Sunday afternoon.

….With his fourth shutout, Mike Ccndon lowered his goals-against-average to 2.15 and his save percentage is now .930 in 33 games.

….Left wing Daniel Carr scored his 17th and 18th goals of the season, leaving him second among the AHL’s rookie goalscorers one behind San Antonio’s Connor Brickley.

….Charles Hudon drew an assist on Carr’s second goal and continues to lead the rookie scoring race with 46 points (12g, 34a)
