Belleville Sens earn hard-fought victory over Marlies

December 8, 2022

A clutch performance from netminder Antoine Bibeau helped lead the Belleville Senators to a hard-fought 4-2 victory over the Toronto Marlies on Wednesday night at Coca-Cola Coliseum.

Toronto opened the scoring at 6:16 of the first period after Ryan Chyzowski capitalized on a fortunate bounce. The Senators would respond quickly as Viktor Lodin redirected a Maxence Guenette point shot to make it 1-1 heading into the intermission.

Early in the second period, Belleville extended their advantage through another deflection as Brennan Saulnier collected his second of the season to give the Senators a 2-1 lead after a fast-paced forty minutes of play.

In the third period, the Senators continued their impressive play as Angus Crookshank made it 3-1 with a highlight-reel goal at the 7:54 mark. However, the Marlies answered in short order when Joey Anderson scored on the power play. Despite a frantic late push from Toronto, the Senators ultimately secured the road win with an empty netter from Jake Lucchini with a second remaining in regulation time.

Sound Bytes: Head Coach Troy Mann:  “I liked our game tonight. I thought we were aggressive in OZP and I thought through two periods, we did a good job of controlling the pace of the hockey game. And it was unfortunate that our power play was a little bit off tonight because we certainly had enough opportunities to put the game away.”
