UTICA, N.Y. - T.J. Brennan had two goals and an assist to help the Toronto Marlies to a 5-2 victory over the winless Utica Comets on Tuesday in American Hockey league action.

Alexander Grenier opened the scoring for the Comets (0-7-2) in the first period, before Sam Carrick tied it for the Marlies (6-3-1).

The Marlies were 2 for 4 on the power play, while the Comets were 1 for 5.

Quote of the Day

I'm hoping Bob [Murray] didn't go out and get Dany Heatley just to get someone. I'm sure he's excited and motivated.
