Bulldogs Toy Toss Night

The Hamilton Bulldogs lost to the Toronto Marlies Friday night at Copps Coliseum, by a score of 4-1. But that lone Dogs goal was important, for it signaled to the faithful in the stands to toss their toys over the glass onto the ice. Hundreds of stuffed animals littered the ice, destined to bring a smile to a youngster’s face this holiday season. It’s an annual event, repeated by many hockey teams, but it never fails to bring a smile to my face. Here’s a look at some pics from tonight’s game. – Barry Gray
