Hamilton Bulldogs outclass Oshawa Generals in Outdoor Showcase

The first-place Hamilton Bulldogs added to their double-digit winning streak Monday night with an impressive 3-0 victory over the Oshawa Generals.

What made the team’s season-high 12th consecutive win even more special was that it came in the Ontario Hockey League‘s Outdoor Showcase at Tim Hortons Field.

The temperature at the time of the opening faceoff was 7 C, a far cry from the – 1 C at puck drop for Sunday afternoon’s NHL Heritage Classic between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Buffalo Sabres.
