3rd Straight OT Nets 2nd Straight Win

For the third straight night, the Lake Erie Monsters game went to overtime and for the second straight night, a rookie defenseman delivered the team a win. Tyson Barrie scored his second goal of the night and the season at 1:21 of overtime to lead the Monsters to a 5-4 win over the Marlies in Toronto on Sunday.

That followed Saturday’s overtime win in Syracuse, when fellow first-year blueliner Stefan Elliott recorded the gamewinner. The Monsters also lost in overtime to Syracuse the previous night.

Playing their third game in three nights on Sunday, the Monsters picked up five of a possible six points over the weekend and now stand at 2-5-1-0 on the season. Sunday’s game capped off a five-game road trip for Lake Erie.

Toronto got on the board first when Mike Zigomanis scored at 6:43, giving the Marlies the early 1-0 advantage.

David van der Gulik evened the score eight minutes later, notching his second goal of the season at 15:05 of the first period. Mike Brennan assisted.

A minute-and-a-half later, David Liffiton put the Monsters up 2-1 when he scored on the power play at 16:33. Hugh Jessiman and Cameron Gaunce were credited with the assists.

The first period ended with the Monsters leading 2-1.

Barrie scored his first as a professional 3:49 into the second. van der Gulik and Adrian Foster assisted on the power play marker, giving the Monsters a 3-1 lead they would take into the second intermission.

The Marlies came out shooting to start the third period. Joe Colborne brought the Marlies within one with his goal just 22 seconds into the last frame.

Joey Crabb tied the game at 3-3 with his power play goal at 11:01 and then put the Marlies ahead, 4-3, at 16:30 with his second goal of the game.

Seven seconds later, Evan Brophey scored his first of the season, tying it back up at 4-4. Luke Walker had the helper, sending the game to overtime.

With the Monsters on the man advantage in extra time, Barrie notched his second of the night, giving the Monsters the 5-4 win. Elliott assisted on the gamewinner.

Trevor Cann recorded 24 saves on 28 shots in the Lake Erie win. Across the ice, Marlies netminder Jussi Rynnas had 27 saves on 32 shots.

The Monsters were 3-for-6 on the power play, their best showing on the man advantage so far this season.

Next up, Lake Erie will return home on Wednesday to host the Syracuse Crunch at 7:00 p.m.
