marlies oct 20The Toronto Marlies took advantage of a disorganized Hamilton Bulldogs to score two power play goals and then survived a third period comeback attempt for a 2-1 victory Sunday afternoon in Toronto.

T.J. Brennan scored in the first period and Carter Ashton in the second to give the Marlies the 2-0 lead.  Mike Blunden scored early in the third period for the Bulldogs, but was a close as they were to come.

It was the third straight loss for the Bulldogs who were shootout losers to Grand Rapids and Lake Erie last week.

This was the first of 14 meetings for the Marlies and Bulldogs this season.

The work of Robert Mayer in the Hamilton net kept the game close, especially in the second period when the Marlies outshot the Bulldogs 11-3.  Overall Toronto had a 28-18 shots on goal advantage.

 Of Note –

…..The most effective  Bulldogs were Sven Andrighetto, Patrick Holland and Gabriel Dumont.

…..Defenceman Nathan Beaulieu, who was returned to Hamilton by the Canadiens Saturday night, took a regular shift alongside Greg Pateryn. It was Beaulieu’s sixth re-assignment since October first.

……Team captain Martin St. Pierre and RW Stephan Fournier missed the game with minor injuries.  The healthy scratches were  D-Nathan McIver, LW-Steve Quailer and  D-Morgan Ellis.
