The Hamilton Bulldogs played three games this past week. They split two back to back games versus the St. John's IceCaps, while losing this weekend to the Lake Erie Monsters.
One positive to bring out of the two defeats was the continued progression of the Bulldogs' offense, which out shot their opponents in both loses. That however begs the question, "Why can't the Bulldogs effectively transition from offense to defense?" Only Sylvain Lefebvre and his coaching staff can answer that.
