The previous record was 21, set back on Mar. 4 in a 5-2 win at Binghamton….The IceCaps are 5-2-0-0 when scoring first and just 2-6-0-0 when allowing the first goal. Hamilton has scored first just twice in its 13 contests….St. John’s went a combined 0-for-11 last weekend on the power play, including an 0-for-8 performance on Saturday. The club has recorded just two power play goals in its last 56 opportunities, dropping to 26th overall in the league in efficiency (9.9%). STREAKS, MILESTONES and LEADERS Carl Klingberg (1G, 2A) and Eric O’Dell (1G, 3A) are currently riding three-game point streaks. O’Dell now shares the team lead with 7P in 12GP….Rookie D Will O’Neill has an assist in consecutive games and is tied for second on the club with 5A….Rookie F Ivan Telegin has a point in two straight games (1G, 1A) and is a +4 in the last three contests….Saturday’s game against Albany marked the 46th consecutive regular season sellout at Mile One and 54th overall, including playoffs. BULLDOGS NOTES YOUTH MOVEMENT The Bulldogs have 10 rookies on their roster this season, including leading scorer Brendan Gallagher. The diminutive 20-year-old from Delta, B.C. (he is listed at 5’8), has eight points (5G, 3A) in 13 games. The former fifth round draft choice also brings some sandpaper to his game, ranking second on the team in penalty minutes with 31. FUN FACTS F Zack Stortini made his professional hockey debut with the Toronto Roadrunners in a game versus the St. John’s Maple Leafs at Mile One Centre on April 9, 2004. His 48 penalty minutes are tops on the Bulldogs and his 31 penalty minutes in last Saturday’s loss to Toronto are the highest single-game total in the AHL this season….F Joonas Nattinen made his AHL debut on Oct. 14, 2011 against the IceCaps and recorded his first goal in the Bulldogs’ 4-0 victory….D Jarred Tinordi is the son of former NHL defenceman Mark Tinordi, who played 12 seasons with Minnesota/Dallas and Washington. ROAD WOES The road has not been kind to the Bulldogs so far. The team is just 1-3-0-1 in its first five games away from Copps Coliseum and is winless in its last four, the league’s second longest road winless streak this season. ATLANTIC CANADIAN ROOTS Three current Bulldogs players hail from Atlantic Canada. Goaltender Cedrick Desjardins hails from Edmunston, New Brunswick while forward Darryl Boyce and defenceman Morgan Ellis both call P.E.I. home.
