Chicago, IL – Hamilton built a commanding 4-0 lead by early in the third period and rolled to a 4-1 road win over Chicago on Saturday in front of 15,654 fans at Allstate Arena.

 J.T. Wyman scored twice for Hamilton along with Dustin Boyd and Kyle Klubertanz.  The Boyd goal was shorthanded; his 11th goal in 10 games since joining Hamilton.  With Max Pacioretty and David Desharnais now with the Canadiens, Boyd has the Bulldogs goalscoring lead, something he’s accomplished in the ten games since he was send down by the Canadiens last month.
It was Hamilton’s first victory over the Wolves this year (1-2-0-0) after finishing a perfect 4-0-0-0 in the 2009-10 season series.

Bulldogs goaltender Curtis Sanford had to make only 15 saves in the victory, as his club ended up with 36-16 edge in shots on goal. Hamilton is now 1-2-0-0 on its four-game road trip, which concludes on Sunday in Milwaukee.
