A power play goal by Graham Mink late in the third period broke a 1-1 tie and gave the Peoria Rivermen a 2-1 win over the Bulldogs in Hamilton Friday night.

The Bulldogs top point producers, Max Pacioretty and David Desharnais were kept off the scoresheet.

Hamilton centre Andreas Engqvist’s third goal opened the scoring in the second period but the Rivermen tied the game just under four minutes later paving the way for the game winner at 16:15 of the final period.

Hamilton outshot Peoria 30-20 in the game. Pacioretty had four of the Hamilton shots; Desharnais-three. Jake Allen the AHL’s top goaltender in goals against average, shutouts and save percentage was the winning goaltender. Curtis Sanford suffered just his second loss in ten starts in the Hamilton nets.

Note –  Defenceman David Urquhart has been recalled from the Wheeling Nailers of the East Coast Hockey League by the Bulldogs.   
Urquhart, 26,  appeared in 17 games with Wheeling this season registering six points (one goal, five assists) and 15 penalty minutes.
