Bulldogs Win Winter 2017 Season Opener Despite Short Bench
Posted by: Jean Pierre Roulette on Thu Jan 26th 2017 11:13am
Facing league imposed sanctions for displaying their new attitude in the championship game, the Bulldogs opened the Winter 2017 Season with a short bench.
The Bulldogs took the ice without Drew T. whose knuckles were most likely still bruised from the beating he threw the Deserters ringers in the Championship game last season. The Bulldogs were also without team pest and speedster Joe E who inflicted a rear naked choke on a Deserters ringer and refused to let go despite the referees warning. The Dogs were also without team attorney Peter H. who has been busy preparing the appeal of his unfairly suspended teammates and is gearing up to face the over matched Aviator legal team regarding their unfair treatment of the Bulldogs players.
Further adding to the Bulldogs deficit in manpower is star defenseman John Coozy having to leave his post to fight crime in the streets of the 5 boros.
As a result, the remaining 9 Bulldogs took the ice against a newly staffed and improved Snipetown team. After an even and close first period, the Bulldogs 9 turned the ice into the dog track and ran all over their opponent. The result was a convincing 9 - 1 season opening win for the boys in blue and a statement game that has put the league on notice. Despite a short bench, the Bulldogs are determined to avenge last season's championship loss with nothing less than another championship keg to add to their collection.
Bulldogs Repeat Hopes End In Fall 2016 Championship Game
Posted by: Jean Pierre Roulette on Wed Jan 25th 2017 3:09pm
After a successful summer 2016 season that saw the Bulldogs win their 4th franchise championship, the Bulldogs took the ice for the Fall 2016 season as the favorite to repeat and successfully defend their title.
The Bulldogs were once again solid during regular season play where they posted a respectable 7 - 3 record finishing in second place.
Reminiscent of their previous Championship, the Bulldogs again saw the Evil Monkeys in Round 1 of the Playoffs. It was Deja Vu as the Bulldogs once again dominated their playoff foe to advance to the Championship Game to defend their title.
In the Championship Game, the Bulldogs faced off against the Deserters - a new team to the Aviator League. The Deserters defeated the regular season #1 seed (Isotopes) to earn the chance to dethrone our Dogs in Blue. Having defeated the Deserters both times they faced off during the regular season, the Deserters wisely made a few sudden last minute line up changes for this championship encounter and stayed true to their team name of deserting their regular season roster. The Bulldogs remained competitive on the short end of a 3 - 1 score when mayhem broke loose.
The Deserters decided to provoke some of the Bulldogs who then became unleashed. After 2 separate fights that saw the Bulldogs eat their opponent as a now dessert, the Deserters were crowned Champions of the league but certainly had the blood and bruises to show it did not come easy. In return, the Aviator league showed sympathy for the newly crowned bruised champion and suspended 3 Bulldogs players to start the Winter 2017 season.
Bulldogs Bring Home Championship for Summer 2016 Season!!!!!
Posted by: Jean Pierre Roulette on Wed Jan 25th 2017 2:56pm
For the Summer 2016 Season, the Bulldogs were a dominating force during both the regular and postseason. Posting and 8 - 2 record, the Brooklyn Bulldogs finished the season in first place. As the regular season ended, they were just beginning to gel as their newly acquired X - Men added life and energy to an already efficient Bulldogs squad which was now stronger than ever and headed for post season play.
The Bulldogs defeated the Evil Monkeys by a score of 3 - 0 in the first round to advance to the Championship game.
In the Championship, the Bulldogs faced off against the Rebels where they impressed the fans with a convincing 9 - 2 victory bringing home their 4th championship in the team's tenure.
This Championship showed the true creation of a bigger and better squad that was moving to the top of a now much improved Aviator Division. This Bulldogs Championship avenged a full calendar year drought without a playoffs win and showed the league that the Bulldogs were now a younger, faster and angrier squad that also maintained its cohesiveness and longevity.
Bulldogs cruise, improve to 6-0

The Brooklyn Bulldogs cruised to an 8-0 win over Snipetown NYC last night to improve to 6-0 on the season. Last minute call up, goaltender Ryan Clipper was steady in net and secured a shutout in his AHL debut. From the opening drop of the puck there was little doubt about the outcome of this game, as the Bulldogs dominated puck possesion and pinned Snipetown in their own end for most of the contest. The Bulldogs have found themselves in this scenario before, having won numerous President's trophies, awarded to the team with the best record in the regular season, only to find themselves ousted in the first round of the playoffs. Their toughest challenge remains ahead of them as they wrap up the season with a home at home series against the rival Ice-O-Topes and look toward what they hope to be a deep post-season run. The overall sentiment in the locker room after the game was that while they are enjoying the regular season success, they are determined to stay focussed on the goal in front of them. The players are well aware of the expectations for this team to make another championship run and they would consider anything less a failure.
BLUE STREAK - 2 more wins for the Dogs

Brooklyn Bulldogs Keep Their Win Streak Alive with Two More Wins
On Wednesday May 11th, the Bulldogs found themselves facing a surprisingly decent opponent. However, decent would prove to be not good enough as the Bulldogs were able to come out on top with a 3 - 2 victory. The first of the Bulldog's goals was scored by Lou Mastrangelo with assists from Joe Esposito and Riston Rocchio. The second goal was a rebound buried by Riston Rocchio after team captain Frank D'Agostino received a pass from line mate Joe Esposito. The game winning goal would come on a two on one involving Joe Esposito and Lou Mastrangelo. Esposito confused everyone, his team included, with his uncharacteristic amount of passing and gave the puck to Mastrangelo who impregnated the net with the game winning goal with only a few minutes left in the game. Lou Mastrangelo was named player of the game and would forego doing the write-up to instead sharpen his goaltending skills for the following week's game.
Three stars for May 11th game vs Rebels:
1. Lou Mastrangelo 2 goals
2. Riston Rocchio 1 goal 1 assist
3. Joe Esposito 3 assists
This past Wednesday, May 18th, the Brooklyn Bulldogs would face-off against their bitter enemies, the Knights and as usual, there was no shortage of loose women in attendance. Enforcer Jeremy "Bear" Mangano was looking forward to the rematch as a way to fight the Knights' token mongoloid who sucker punched him on the handshake line the last time the two teams met. However, Mangano would not get the fight he was looking forward to because his opponent was dropped from the Knights' roster. Lou Mastrangelo kept the game scoreless for the first two periods as the Knights poured on an offensive assault. In the third period, the Bulldogs would draw first blood with a goal from Riston Rocchio assisted by Frank D'Agostino and Joe Esposito. A second goal would come soon after off the stick of Ryan Burtchell, which would lead to a slap fight in front of the net. The Bulldog's own John Cavallary was asked about the fight after the game and said, "I did not run, but actually ducked his punch and went back for seconds, but Bear already came to my rescue."
The game would not end there as the Knights would get two quick goals with under three minutes left in order to tie the game, forcing the two teams into a shootout. The Knights chose to go first and after many rounds, they were able to net a goal on the brick wall wearing a Mastrangelo jersey. Riston Rocchio quickly silenced the Knights' bench with a shootout goal to tie the game back up and force extra shootout rounds. Lou Mastrangelo would not let another puck into his net for the rest of the game. The shootout dragged on until both teams had to go through their roster again. Up first for the second time around was Joe Esposito. On his first attempt he had the Knights' goaltender clearly beat, but lifted a backhand over the glass and into the stands. This time around he would net the game winner, lifting the Bulldogs over the Knights.
Three stars of the game:
1. Joe Esposito 1 assist , 1 shootout winner
2. Riston Rocchio 1 goal, 1 shootout tying goal
3. Lou Mastrangelo 1W
