The Hamilton Bulldogs rebounded from an epic collapse on Family Day to beat the Peterborough Petes 3-1 Thursday night.

Peterborough flipped the script in the second period as they outshot the Dogs 18-5 and got the only goal of the frame, when Toronto Maple Leafs draft pick Nick Robertson scored his OHL-leading 47th goal of the season.
