I think I would only blame Robert for one of the four. The fourth one pinballed off about three bodies and up over Robert's shoulder and in. I'm still seeing too much Beaulieu too. I think (IMO) we actually dominated a great part of the game but the garbage goals took the wind out of the team's sails :Bulldogs:

ps-Tarnasky looks like he's labouring getting back up ice. Not the fastest guy to begin with but has slowed down a lot recently. Not sure if he's nursing an injury. Power play pretty pathetic again especially when we had almost a full two man advantage for over a minute an a half. Referee Knorr missed calls both ways and called some bizarre ones too. Sly seemed to let some of the D like Pateryn and Tinordi pinch way too late after the game was pretty well decided. Tinordi had a long discussion with Knorr at the start of the third re a penalty call on him for "holding" in the offensive zone when it appeared the reverese.

Ex Bulldog ass't coach Randy Ladouceur is an assistant with Cleveland. Ex Dog JT Wyman did a fair bit of damage tonight.

I guess I am getting ticked off because of the team record but little things like sponsored power plays, sponsored penalty kils, sponsored box office (!), late goal and penalty announcements are becoming truly annoying

Some ugly +/- numbers from this one:

St. Pierre/Nygren: -4

McIver/Tarnasky/Thomas: -3

Nattinen had a pair of points, nice to see him do well. I still think he has zero chance of moving out of that 4th line spot though, he seems locked in there no matter what.

Game 2 goes tomorrow in Lake Erie.

It went to a shootout but the strangest thing happened...the Bulldogs scored 1 goal in the shootout. Even stranger, they didn't allow any. Interestingly enough, Dumont got the goal and he's in the same situation Desharnais is, looking for goal #1 on the year. Hamilton wins in a shootout, this is not a typo. :1banana:
