Hamilton and Colborne each score shootout goals as Marlies beat Senators 2-1

TORONTO - Ryan Hamilton and Joe Colborne each scored shootout goals and Drew MacIntyre made 28 saves as the Toronto Marlies beat the Binghamton Senators 2-1 in AHL action Sunday afternoon.

MacIntyre made a glove save off the Senators’ final shooter Cole Schneider as the Marlies defeated Binghamton for the first time in four meetings this season, including a 4-2 loss on Saturday.

Greg Scott’s goal late in the second period for Toronto (29-19-6) forced overtime.

Dustin Gazley had the regulation goal for Binghamton (33-17-6).

Binghamton jumped in front at 4:24 of the first when Jean-Gabriel Pageau found Gazley alone. The winger had time to wait and pick his spot before going high above MacIntyre’s left shoulder.

Toronto tied it at 16:58 of the second when Scott came into the slot, snapped a shot through traffic and past Senators goalie Nathan Lawson.

It looked as though Carter Ashton deflected the puck in, but a review showed Scott’s shot went untouched for his fourth goal of the season.

After being outshout 20-10 through two periods, the Senators came on strong in the third period but MacIntyre, who signed with the Marlies in February, made 13 saves in the period to preserve the tie.

Lawson made 27 in regulation for the Senators.

Notes: Attendance was 6,635. … Sunday was Canadian Armed Forces Appreciation Day. The Marlies wore special jerseys honouring Canada’s military.

Quote of the Day

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
