Alexandre Bolduc scored a second period shorthanded goal and goaltender Eddie Lack stopped all 34 Bulldogs shots as the Manitoba Moose beat Hamilton 1-0 at Copps Coliseum Sunday night.  The win forces a 7th and deciding game Monday night, again in Hamilton.  The game’s only goal came when Bolduc intercepted a Nigel Dawes pass at the Manitoba blueline and raced in alone on Bulldogs goaltender Drew MacIntyre. 

Hamilton had a chance to tie the game when Manitoba’s Eric Volpatyti was handed a highsticking penalty with 1:25 remaining in the third period.  With goaltender Drew MacIntyre pulled to give the Bulldogs a 6-on-4 advantage, the closest the Bulldogs could come in the final moments was a Nigel Dawes goalpost.
