Frattin scores 2 as Marlies snap 3-game slide with 4-1 win over Americans

ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Matt Frattin scored twice to help the Toronto Marlies snap a three-game losing streak with a 4-1 victory over the Rochester Americans in American Hockey League action Friday.

Carter Ashton and Jerry D'Amigo also scored for the Marlies (10-8-1), while Ben Scrivens made 28 saves in net.

Maxime Legault had the lone goal for the Americans (9-8-1), and netminder David Leggio stopped 27 shots.

The victory kept Toronto ahead of Rochester by two points for third place in the North Division.

Two quick goals gave Toronto a 2-0 lead in the first period.

Ashton put Toronto on the scoreboard with a power-play goal at 16:02, and Frattin scored his first just 15 seconds later.

Frattin added another early in the second for a 3-0 lead.

Legault broke Scrivens' shutout 3:46 into the third, but D'Amigo's empty-net goal capped the scoring in the final minute of regulation.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
