Third Period Scoring Lifts Monsters Over Marlies

Scoresheet

Three unanswered goals and a perfect penalty kill lifted the Lake Erie Monsters (7-6-0-0) to a 3-1 win over the Toronto Marlies (6-6-1-0) Thursday night at Quicken Loans Arena. Calvin Pickard stopped 28 shots and Paul Carey picked up a goal and an assist in the Monsters victory; their second straight win. The game marks the start of three games in three nights for the Monsters, who will play in Hamilton Friday night before returning to Quicken Loans Arena to host the Bulldogs on Saturday.

After a scoreless first period, Josh Leivo opened the scoring for the Marlies at 11:16 of the second period when he completed a passing play with a shot from the top of the goal crease. The Toronto lead lasted less than five minutes, as Bryan Lerg tied the game at 15:57 of the second period. Lerg picked up a loose puck and backhanded a shot top-shelf to tie the game at 1-1 with his team-leading eighth goal of the season, assisted by Tyson Barrie and Mark Olver.

The Monsters notched the eventual game-winning tally on the power play at 7:41 of the third period when Paul Carey tipped an Olver point shot past Toronto goalie Drew MacIntyre. Joey Hishon also assisted on the goal that gave the Monsters a 2-1 lead.

Gabe Beaupre added an insurance marker on a slap shot from the high slot that beat MacIntyre top-corner at 18:24 of the third period. Paul Carey connected with Beaupre on a pass from the left circle, earning him an assist on the play.

Pickard is 5-4-0 after stopping 28 of 29 shots in the win. MacIntyre is 6-4-0 after stopping 24 of 27 shots in the loss.(/p>
