Ryan Hamilton scores both goals in Marlies' 2-1 victory over Americans

TORONTO - Ryan Hamilton scored both goals, including the game-winner on a penalty shot to lead the Toronto Marlies to a 2-1 victory over the Rochester Americans in American Hockey League action on Wednesday.

Goalie Drew MacIntyre stopped 27 of 28 shots for the Marlies (28-18-6), who won their second straight and moved into first place in the North Division.

Mark Mancari replied for the Amerks (27-22-3), who have lost four straight and are clinging to the eighth and final playoff spot in the West. Rochester netminder David Leggio made 37 saves.

Hamilton opened the scoring when he deflected Paul Ranger’s point shot past Leggio 15 seconds into the middle frame.

Mancari tied it up on the power play when his blast from the left point beat MacIntyre high on the blocker side at 11:41.

Hamilton restored Toronto's lead just under two minutes later on a penalty shot after being hauled down on a breakaway by Amerks defenceman Nick Crawford.

Toronto was 0-for-3 on the power play while Rochester went 1-for-2.

The Marlies host the Binghamton Senators in a pair of games this weekend.

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
