Binghamtom scored the only goal of the first period to take a 1-0 lead into the break. Josh Jacobs sent a hard pass towards the crease that Egor Sharangovich got his stick on.

Toronto scored three goals in the second period to take a 3-1 lead after 40 minutes. Chris Mueller got it going on a deflection that went through the legs of goaltender Evan Cormier for his 17th of the year. It appeared to be a high stick, but counted, and tied the game at one 9:29 into the frame.

Adam Brooks fed Carcone from the right wall and he stepped up letting a shot fly over the right shoulder of Cormier for the 2-1 lead at 12:08. Assists on Carcone's goal were credited to Brooks and Mason Marchment.

Mueller helped the Marlies take a two-goal lead on a deflected shot from the point on the power play. Jeremy Bracco fired a shot that Mueller tipped by Cormier for a 3-1 lead at 14:51 of the secon. Assists were credited to Bracco on the shot and Brooks and Toronto took that lead to the third period along with a 19-9 shot advantage.

In the third, the Marlies added two more for a 5-1 win. Brooks scored at 15:56 on the power play and Carcone put home his second of the night at 16:48 for a four-goal lead. Cormier stopped 24 in his professional debut for the Devils and a Kaskisuo collected the win with 19 saves.
