Toronto scores three times in third period to defeat Rochester 4-1

ROCHESTER, N.Y. - The Toronto Marlies scored three goals in the third period en route to a 4-1 victory over the Rochester Americans in American Hockey League play Friday.

Joe Colborne, Brad Ross, Paul Ranger and Jerry D'Amigo each scored for Toronto (37-21-8), which leads the Americans by six points atop the North Division.

Cody McCormick had the lone goal for Rochester (36-26-4) just over five minutes into the first period.

Colborne tied the game in the second and Ross scored at 15:01 in the third to give the Marlies a lead.

The Americans pulled goaltender David Leggio, only to watch Toronto score a pair of empty-net goals by Ranger and D'Amigo.

Drew MacIntyre made 14 saves for the Marlies, while Leggio stopped 36 shots.

Quote of the Day

I was going nuts and I saw [Subban], he was going crazy, and the ref had no idea where to go. [Subban] was skating to me, and I was skating to him and the ref was right in between us and I don't know, I kind of hit him pretty hard, I thought, but those were some emotions and I'm pretty sure he understands that.
