Following a pair of excellent performances earlier in the week that saw the Barons climb from an 0-2 series shortage, Hamilton rebounded to silence the home side with a 2-0 victory Friday night at Cox Convention Center. The Barons went 0-7 on the power-play, while the visiting Bulldogs scored once on six opportunities to mark the game-winning tally early in the opening period.
Dynamic Bulldogs stars Nigel Dawes and Aaron Palushaj scored for the visitors, while netminder Drew MacIntyre stopped all 20 Barons shots to earn the shutout in Game 5.
Martin Gerber made his fourth consecutive start in goal for the Barons, stopping 23 shots in the loss.
