End of the game - Dogs win 2-0

They got there in the end. They never gave up, they played well in their own end, they (or Locke) set a record and the team takes the 2 points for the 2nd night in a row over the Moose.

Tank started the period with a very accurate Brisebois impression, bad pass in his own zone. At the other end, Lemieux continued to be unlucky. He stole the puck in the Moose zone and had a shot but it was saved. The Dogs had plenty of chances around the Moose net but couldn't find a way to put it home.

Price continued his sterling work, firstly with a nice glove save on a blast from the point and then stopping a high shot that came at him in an awkward way. At the other end, Manlow nearly found Lemieux in front of the net with a pass but Franky couldn't tip it while dealing with a Dman. And as bad as Tanks pass was early on, Martin's icing was quite possibly worse. Lots of time, no pressure, launched it down the ice. He played a decent game but it was a shame to see him make a mistake like that.

The Dogs started getting closer to a goal. D'Agostini had some good slapshots saved and Degon drilled one off the post. Even Cote nearly scored. He found the twine, but only on the outside of the net.

The breakthrough came late on. Locke fired the puck on goal from a very narrow angle, Corso got on the end of it and whacked it, forcing another save. Then I'm pretty sure Milroy had a follow up attempt which found the nearside top corner. It was announced as Corso's but theahl.com is now giving it to Milroy. Milroy from Corso and Locke. Locke would get his own soon after. He scored into the empty net to become the Bulldogs all-time leading goalscorer, passing Plekanec and Swanson. Locke from Corso and Valentenko.

Great win by the Dogs. It was a very close game and they worked hard for the win
