One night after seeing their three-game winning streak come to an end in Peterborough, the Hamilton Bulldogs bounced right back into the win column Friday night with a 4-2 win in Kingston.

Bulldogs captain Isaac Nurse opened the scoring 13:44 into the first period when he backhanded a rebound past Frontenacs goalie Ryan Dugas. Nurse did not return to the game for the start of the second period and missed the remainder of the game with an undisclosed injury.

Ontario Hockey League leading scorer Arthur Kaliyev doubled Hamilton’s lead 82 seconds later when he blistered a one-timer into the top corner past Dugas.

Zayde Wisdom cut Hamilton’s lead to one goal when he grabbed a rebound that bounced off Roy’s pad and slotted it into the net with 2:56 to play in the second.
