HERSHEY, Pa. -- Joonas Nattinen scored the go-ahead goal late in the second period as the Hamilton Bulldogs edged the Hershey Bears 3-2 on Saturday in the American Hockey League.
Patrick Holland and Mike Blunden had the other goals for the Bulldogs (8-10-2), who got 21 saves from goalie Cedrick Desjardins.
Ryan Potulny had both goals for the Bears (11-12-1), with Braden Holtby making 19 saves.
Potulny opened the scoring on the power play five minutes into the game, but Hamilton responded with a power-play goal of its own -- Blunden's fourth of the year -- early in the second.
Potulny restored Hershey's lead just under two minutes later, but Holland tied the game at 7:02.
Nattinen netted the winner at 17:36 on an assist from Nathan Beaulieu, his second of the night.
