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 Marlies went 0 for 4 on the power play, while Hershey was 1 for 4 with the man advantage.

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

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
