Marlies Too Much for Monsters Again

The location was different, but the result was the same on Sunday.  The Monsters fell, 6-1, in Toronto, just two days after losing to the Marlies in Cleveland.  Lake Erie was playing their third straight game and the last of five in six days. 

Toronto did most of their damage in the first period, scoring four times in the frame.  The Marlies got it started right out of the gates, as Ben Ondrus scored just :39 seconds into the contest.  He was assisted by John Mitchell and Robbie Earl.

Ondrus struck again at the 4:47 mark, helped this time by Patrick Wellar, and giving the Marlies a 2-0 advantage.

Wellar made his own mark on the game, scoring at 11:42.  Peter Tsimikalis was credited with the assist.

Toronto gave themselves a 4-0 lead with an Andy Wozniewski goal at 17:14.  The opening period would come to an end with the Marlies leading by four. 

It didn't take the Marlies long into the second period to continue their scoring.  Bates Battaglia scored 4:16 into the stanza, assisted by Max Taylor and David Ling.

The Monsters tried to make a dent in the Toronto lead with a Jamie Lundmark score at the 11:05 point of the second.  Dan DaSilva helped on the goal. Lundmark has now scored in three straight games for Lake Erie. Sunday was DaSilva's second night in a row with an assist.

After the Lake Erie goal, the scored remained 5-1 through the end of the second.

The Monsters got off twice as many shots (15-7) as the home team in the third period, but could not manage to find the back of the net.   The Marlies lit the lamp one last time with Ondrus' goal at the 10:38 mark, completing his hat trick for the night.  He was assisted by Earl.

The Marlies outshot Lake Erie, 34-28, on Sunday.

Mike Wall was in goal for the Monsters, recording 28 saves on 34 shots.  Across the ice, Justin Pogge had 27 saves on 28 shots for Toronto.

Lake Erie will return home for two games this week, Wednesday against Houston and Friday against Hamilton.
