Frattin overtime hero in Marlies 2-1 win over Americans that ends with scrum @NHLdotcom

ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Matt Frattin scored on the power play 2:31 into overtime as the Toronto Marlies slipped past the Rochester Americans 2-1 in American Hockey League action on Friday.

Matt Caruana had the other goal for Toronto (21-14-5) in the second period. Mike Zigomanis assisted on both goals for the Marlies. Goaltender Ben Scrivens made 25 saves for the win.

Travis Turnbull's power-play goal for Rochester (16-13-8) at the 11:43 mark of the second was the lone goal for the Americans. David Leggio was solid in net, stopping 38 shots.

The Marlies were given the power-play opportunity in the extra period when Marcus Foligno was called for tripping 1:59 into overtime.

A scrum ensued between the two teams after Frattin scored the winner. Toronto's Joe Colborne and Rochester's T.J. Brennan both earned five-minute majors for fighting.

Foligno, released from the penalty box after the overtime goal, entered the fray and was called for slashing and assessed a game misconduct.

The Marlies went 1-for-3 with the man advantage and the Americans were 1-for-4 on the power play.

The win pads Toronto's lead in the AHL's North Division. The Marlies have 47 points, seven more than second-place Rochester.
