WINNIPEG (CP) - Brandon Reid is on a roll.

Reid's power-play goal at 4:46 of overtime earned the Manitoba Moose a 2-1 victory over the Hamilton Bulldogs in AHL action Wednesday night. Reid, who will play for Canada in the Spengler Cup later this month, extended his goal-scoring streak to four games. "I'm playing with confidence," Reid said. "I'm shooting the puck a lot and it's going in. I hope that now I can bring the winning ways to Canada." A fact not lost upon Moose head coach Scott Arniel.

"He (Reid) is streaky that way," Arniel said. "When he is on a roll, he is tough to defend.

"Hopefully he can give us another present (in Thursday's rematch with Hamilton) before he leaves (for Spengler Cup)."

Prestin Ryan had the other goal for Manitoba.

Kyle Chipchura replied for Hamilton.

Ryan opened the scoring at 8:13 of the second, getting credit for the goal after Hamilton defenceman Dan Jancevski, attempting to clear a loose puck, put it into his own net by mistake.

Chipchura tied the score at 8:56 of the third, corralling a Matt D'Agostini rebound in the crease and beating Manitoba goaltender Wade Flaherty.

Flaherty stopped 28 shots while Hamilton's Jaroslav Halak made 27 saves.

"I thought that Manitoba did a much better job in the first half of the game as far as protecting the puck and making us play in our own end," said Hamilton coach Don Lever. "We couldn't play more physical because we couldn't get the puck in the good areas.
