Jeremy Morin scores to lift Rochester IceHogs past Toronto Marlies 3-2

TORONTO - Jeremy Morin gave Rockford its first and last lead of the game with less than six minutes remaining as the IceHogs edged the Toronto Marlies 3-2 in American Hockey League action Wednesday night.

Morin scored his fourth of the season off a faceoff win by Byron Froese at 14:33 of the third period.

Jimmy Hayes had an excellent chance to give Rockford (5-2-1) the insurance goal with just 2:35 remaining, but was robbed by the glove of Drew MacIntyre. Alex Broadhurst and Terry Broadhurst each scored for the IceHogs.

Toronto pulled MacIntyre with less than two minutes remaining, but could not score the equalizer.

Gregg McKegg and Carter Ashton scored for the Marlies (4-2-0), who suffered their first loss at Ricoh Coliseum this season.

Rockford's Broadhurst brothers erased a 2-0 deficit with two late second-period goals.

Alex Broadhurst cut Toronto's lead to 2-1 at 14:33 of the second period finishing off a 2-on-1 feed from Adam Clendening for his second of the season.

Less than three minutes later, Terry Broadhurst put home a feed from Garrett Ross, who beat out the icing call, tying it 2-2. The goal extended Terry Broadhurst's point streak to four games.

McKegg opened the scoring for Toronto at 4:18 of the first.

Ashton gave the Marlies a 2-0 lead at 8:23 of the second when he pounced on the rebound off a Spencer Abbott's shot.

Abbott, who also assisted on McKegg's goal, has eight assists in his last five games.

Antti Raanta made 22 saves for Rochester, while MacIntyre finished with 17 saves.

Note: The Maple Leafs assigned forward Josh Leivo to the Marlies on Wednesday morning. Leivo had a goal and an assist in six NHL games this season. Wednesday marked Leivo's third game with the Marlies this season.

Quote of the Day

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
