  • Print

HAMILTON, Ont. -- Gabriel Dumont had five points, including a hat trick, as the Hamilton Bulldogs defeated the St. John's IceCaps 6-3 in Friday AHL action.

Louis Leblanc and Brendan Nash each scored for the Bulldogs, who snapped a five-game losing streak. Robert Mayer made 26 saves for the win.

Jason Jaffray had two goals and Patrice Cormier had one for the IceCaps (14-17-1), while Eddie Pasquale stopped 21 shots in relief of starter Mark Dekanich.

The hosts opened the scoring on the power play. Patrick Holland let loose a wristshot that Dumont tipped in. The Bulldogs added another a few minutes later.

Hamilton capped off a dominant period with another power-play goal at 12:32. Dumont gathered a trickling puck and jammed it past Dekanich for his second goal and third point of the period. Dekanich was removed from the game after giving up three goals on 10 shots.

The IceCaps scored early in the second, then scored again while short-handed. Spencer Machacek's initial shot was saved, but Cormier potted the trickling rebound.

The IceCaps had the momentum, levelling the game late in the second period. Jaffray scored his second goal of the game, firing a wristshot past a partially screened Mayer.

The Bulldogs took the lead early in the third. Ellis released a heavy slapshot through traffic and past Pasquale's outstretched blocker.

Dumont got an assist on the play for his fourth point of the night, a career single-game high. He added another goal at 18:30, and Nash scored into an empty net a minute later.
