Late push by Toronto Marlies not enough in Hershey Bears' 4-2 win

HERSHEY, Pa. - Two late goals by the Marlies weren't enough as Toronto lost to the Hershey Bears 4-2 on Sunday in American Hockey League play.

Matt Frattin scored midway through the second period and Mark Fraser had a goal in the third for the Marlies (9-8-1). Mark Owuya made 15 saves for Toronto.

Cameron Schilling's goal in the second period stood as the winner for Hershey (7-10-1), while Jon DiSalvatore, Zach Hamill and Alex Berry rounded out the offence.

Braden Holtby stopped 40 shots to earn the win for the Bears.

The Bears' victory ended a three-game skid. Toronto has now lost three in a row.

Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
