April 3, 2018 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Toronto Marlies News Release

The Toronto Marlies earned a sweep over three Canadian teams last week, reaching both the 100-point and 50-win marks in the process.

Starting out at home against Laval, the Marlies gave up the game's first goal midway through the first period but charged back with five straight goals. Pierre Engvall scored to tie the game late in the first, then Trevor Moore and Vincent LoVerde scored in the second.

In the third, Andreas Borgman and Ben Smith both scored to help the Marlies skate to the 5-1 victory, their ninth consecutive over the Rocket this season.

The Marlies then traveled to Winnipeg for back-to-back games against the Moose. Friday night's game saw the Marlies start down a goal again, but Dmytro Timashov and Adam Brooks scored a pair to put the Marlies ahead in the second. Manitoba answered back late in the second period.

With just 25 seconds left in regulation, Brooks made a great pass to Chris Mueller who sat on the door step and redirected it in for the game winner.

Back at it less than 24 hours later on Saturday, the Marlies and Moose fought in another back-and-froth battle. Miro Aaltonen opened the scoring less than ten minutes into the contest before Trevor Moore extended the lead just minutes later. Before the first ended, the Moose responded with a pair of their own.

The Moose scored a third straight to take the lead early in the second but Calle Rosen scored from the point before the period was over to tie things up yet again. Ben Smith scored early in the third, which the Moose answered again, but Jeremy Bracco was able to score the game winner less than eight minutes into the third, closing out the 5-4 victory.
