Bulldogs Seeing Stars

The Hamilton Bulldogs faced another of those ‘3 games in 3 nights’ weekends, losing Friday, winning Saturday, and returning to First Ontario Centre Sunday to battle the Texas Stars. The Stars clung to a slim 1-0 lead through most of the game, until the Dogs tied it up late in the third period. But overtime proved unkind to the Bulldogs, who ended up dropping a 2-1 decision. The Dogs’ next home game is Friday, Dec. 12, when they take on Rochester in the popular ‘Toy Toss’ game. Here’s a look at the action today. – Barry Gray
