Oklahoma City edges Toronto 5-3, Drew MacIntyre stops 37 shots in loss

OKLAHOMA CITY - The Oklahoma City Barons got five goals from five different players to topple the visiting Toronto Marlies 5-3 in American Hockey League action on Thursday.

Anton Lander had a goal and two assists, Tyler Pitlick had a goal and one assist, and Ryan Hamilton, Travis Ewanyk and Jack Combs each added singles for Oklahoma City (17-22-6).

Spencer Abbott scored two power-play goals and added an assist for the North Division leading Marlies (25-14-4), and T.J. Brennan added the other Toronto goal in the upset.

Oklahoma City made it 3-1 with Ewanyk's goal late in the second period, but Toronto replied to make it 3-2 on Abbott's 12th of the season two minutes later, and tied the game on Brennan's 19th at 7:28 of the third.

Barons goalie Richard Bachman made 19 saves for the victory, while Toronto's Drew MacIntyre stopped 37 shots in the losing effort.

Oklahoma City outshot Toronto 42-22, and held the Marlies to just six shots apiece in the first and third periods.

Toronto was 2 for 6 on the power play while the Barons, who racked up 40 penalty minutes on 13 infractions, scored just once on five chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
