HAMILTON, Ont. -- The Chicago Wolves left Ontario with a pair of victories after they bagged their second win of the weekend with a 4-1 decision over the Hamilton Bulldogs on Sunday at Copps Coliseum.

Left wing Dmitrij Jaskin and defenseman Mark Cundari each had a goal and an assist, and right wing Tyler Shattock and defenseman Joel Edmundson both added goals for the Wolves.

For the second night in a row, the Wolves (23-15-2-2) got on the board first thanks to Jaskin. On a power play, Cundari sent a pass to the point for a one-timer by defenseman Brent Regner. The rebound popped out to the doorstep, where Jaskin wrangled the puck free and buried it 14:25 into the first period.

The Wolves increased their lead over Hamilton (20-18-0-4) later in the period, taking advantage of a 3-on-2 rush. Shattock streaked into the offensive zone joined by Jaskin and Edmundson, and he fired a shot on net that snuck through.

Just 1:28 into the second period, Edmundson received a pass from center Adam Cracknell and beat Bulldogs goaltender Robert Mayer (4-8-2, 40 saves) with a quick shot for a 3-0 lead.

The Bulldogs scored at 3:24 of the second period when right wing Christian Thomas whipped a shot near-side past goaltender Matt Climie (5-7-0, 21 saves).

Midway through the second, Cundari netted his first goal in a Wolves sweater on an assist from forward Nathan Longpre.

The Wolves continue their five-game road trip at Rochester at 6 p.m. Wednesday.
