TORONTO - Dylan Yeo scored 27 seconds into overtime Saturday as the Toronto Marlies picked up a 4-3 exhibition victory over Swedish club Farjestad.

Yeo also added two assists for the Marlies, who sit tops in the American Hockey League's North Division this season with a record of 28-16-4.

Greg McKegg scored twice in regulation for Toronto, while Brandon Kozun had the other goal. Jerry D'Amigo had three assists.

Garret Sparks made 17 saves to get the win.

Milan Gulas and Jack Connolly each had a goal and an assist for Farjestad, while Niklas Arell also scored. Ville Lajunen chipped in with two assists.

Pekka Tuokkola allowed two goals on 16 shots before being replaced by Frederik Pettersson-Wentzel midway through the second period. He finished with 14 saves of his own.

Farjestad led 2-1 after the first period before McKegg tied the score with his second of the afternoon at 5:08 of the second.

Kozun gave Toronto a 3-2 lead at 17:13, but Gulas tied it on the power play with 19 seconds left in the period.

The crowd of 4,425 at Ricoh Coliseum then watched a scoreless third before Yeo won it in the extra period.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
