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

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.

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

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
