CLEVELAND -- Stefan Chaput scored the decisive shootout goal as the league-worst Hamilton Bulldogs edged the Lake Erie Monsters 2-1 in American Hockey League play Saturday.

Chaput's goal came in the ninth round of a shootout that had only featured two prior goals.

Gabriel Dumont's short-handed goal gave the Bulldogs (14-21-6) the lead at 17:10 in the second period.

But Bill Thomas tied the game for Lake Erie (23-16-4) on the power play at 6:47 in the third.

Hamilton goaltender Cedrick Desjardins made 22 saves, while at the other end Sami Aittokallio stopped 33 shots.
