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've never seen anything like that. The great thing is I don't know how many times guys bailed me out where they had to score to keep it alive and they did every time. It was amazing. It's not the way we draw it up, to go 20 rounds here, but obviously it's a big win.
