BELLEVILLE, ON - The Belleville Senators' five-game road trip began Wednesday afternoon at Coca-Cola Coliseum with a 4-2 loss to the Toronto Marlies.

Semyon Der-Arguchintsev and Filip Kral staked the Marlies to a 2-0 lead after forty minutes of play as both came through with the man advantage.

A Lassi Thomson wrister from the high slot 4:01 into the third frame broke the Toronto shutout bid. Bobby McMann restored the Marlies' two-goal advantage 23 seconds later, shortly after Belleville had initially got on the board.

Again, the Senators were brought to within one, as an Egor Sokolov dump-in from the red line found the back of the net after the awkward bounce beat Erik Kallgren with 5:50 left to play.

After sustained pressure in the Toronto zone, Antti Suomela sent a long clearance down the length of the ice to find the empty net with just over a minute to play, clinching the Marlies' victory.
