Frattin opened the scoring at 17:14 of the first period and Brown added two more goals in the second period to make it 3-0 Toronto after 40 minutes of play.

Hensick put Hamilton on the board at 15:03 of the third before Frattin responded for the Marlies just 1:31 later.

Carr added a goal in the final minute of regulation while the Bulldogs had their goaltender out to play 6-on-5 hockey.

Christopher Gibson made 33 saves for Toronto as Mike Condon stopped 21-of-25 shots for Hamilton.

The Marlies went 0 for 2 on the power play while the Bulldogs failed to convert on three chances with the man advantage.
