CHICAGO - Tim Miller and Bill Sweatt scored just over a minute apart as the Chicago Wolves held off the Toronto Marlies for a 2-1 victory on Sunday in the American Hockey League.

Miller and Sweatt scored at the 7:14 and 8:48 marks of the first period to give Chicago (13-10-4) a 2-1 lead that it never relinquished. Eddie Lack made 31 saves for the win.

Jeff Finger had the lone goal for Toronto (15-10-4), which has lost three in a row. Goaltender Ben Scrivens stopped 21 shots for the Marlies.

Finger's goal was Toronto's first in three games. The Marlies hadn't scored since their 4-1 win over the Albany Devils on Dec. 10.

The Wolves were 0-for-3 on the power play, while Toronto couldn't score on its four man advantages.

It was a fairly rough game with the Marlies serving 20 minutes of penalties and Chicago spending 29 minutes in the penalty box.
