Spencer Abbott scores two, lifts Toronto over Rochester 2-1 in OT

ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Spencer Abbott scored twice, including a power-play goal 45 seconds into overtime, as the Toronto Marlies edged the Rochester Americans 2-1 on Friday in American Hockey League action.

Abbott scored his 15th of the season just 37 seconds into the game, and Trevor Smith had assists on both Toronto (35-19-5) goals.

Rasmus Ristolainen replied for the Americans (30-20-10), scoring on a power play at 6:13 of the first period.

Marlies goaltender Christopher Gibson made 23 saves, while Rochester's Nathan Lieuwen stopped 38 shots in the losing effort.

Toronto, which outshot the Americans 40-24, was 1 for 6 on the power play. Rochester scored once in seven chances with the man advantage.

The Americans travel to Binghamton to play the Senators on Saturday. The Marlies have an off day before hosting the Hamilton Bulldogs Sunday.

Quote of the Day

We're buyers. We're committed to winning. That's what [owner Vinnie Viola] has said all along and what we've said all along. We want to win. We want to win a championship. We're putting the pieces together, step by step, and we're hopeful that Jaromir can lead these young guys to the promised land. It's a win-win for us.
