Viktor Lodin scores twice as Belleville Sens complete comeback win over Marlies

April 21, 2022

Viktor Lodin scored twice to play hero on Wednesday night at CAA Arena as the Belleville Senators came from behind to beat the Toronto Marlies 5-4.

Toronto raced out to a 1-0 lead, opening the scoring at 3:50 of the first period as Joey Anderson found the back of the net on the power play. The Marlies would extend their advantage later in the frame through Brett Seney. Early in the second period, Belleville got on the board as Lodin notched his first of the night at the 3:56 mark of the stanza after he intercepted an errant pass to cut the Toronto lead in half. The Senators’ strong offensive play continued as Mark Kastelic, and Cole Reinhardt would also tally. However, Nick Robertson tied the contest at 3-3 on a 5-on-3 man advantage by blasting home a one-timer past Mads Sogaard with just 3.5 seconds left in the period. The back and forth affair continued in the third as Lassi Thomson and Robertson traded goals in the first half of the period.  Belleville would complete the comeback when Lodin notched his second of the game and eventual game-winner with 1:19 left in the game.

Head Coach Troy Mann:

“We refocused and came out with a purpose in the second period and played to our identity and that’s why we were able to get back in the hockey game. I thought in the third period we did much of the same, and even though they were making a push, but we were able to get the late goal.”

“My message after the first intermission was that over the last 8-to-10 weeks we were hoping we would have learned from our earlier experiences against the Marlies on how we needed to play to be successful against them, and obviously the boys got the message. We’ve got a lot of character in that room and a lot of resilience and that certainly showed.”

 Playoff Push

With tonight’s win, the Senators have moved into third in the North Division and sit .017 percentage points behind the Laval Rocket for second place.
