Game Recap

Belleville Sens fall to Toronto Marlies

November 6, 2022

The Belleville Senators were unable to slow down the high-flying Toronto Marlies on Saturday night as they fell 5-2 at CAA Arena.

Toronto opened the scoring at the 9:21 mark of the first period when Nick Abruzzese found the back of the net after he capitalized on a rebound. The Marlies extended their advantage through Adam Gaudette at 16:21. Belleville was able to get on the scoreboard late in the frame as Angus Crookshank redirected home his second of the season to make it 2-1 heading into the intermission.

In the second, Gaudette tallied once again just past the mid-way point of the stanza. Belleville quickly responded at 13:58 as Scott Sabourin brought the Senators back within one after 40 minutes of play.

The Marlies struck twice more in the final frame as Alex Steeves made it 4-2 with the man advantage before the aforementioned Gaudette secured his hat-trick with an empty netter, propelling Toronto to their sixth straight victory.

The Senators are back in action next Friday when they travel to Syracuse.
