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

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
