·1 min read

TORONTO — Alexander Barabanov had a goal and two assists as the Toronto Marlies edged the Laval Rocket 4-3 on Friday in American Hockey League play.

Alex Galchenyuk and Nic Petan each added a goal and an assist while Joey Anderson also scored for the Marlies (7-6-0).

Josh Brook, Jesse Ylonen and Joseph Blandisi had a goal and an assist apiece for the Rocket (6-4-1).

Joseph Woll made 31 saves for Toronto, while Cayden Primeau stopped 27-of-31 shots for Laval.

Forward Scott Sabourin lasted only 23 seconds in his Marlies debut, receiving a two-minute minor for goalie interference, a five-minute major for fighting and a game misconduct for being the aggressor after running over Primeau, then dropping the gloves on Lukas Vejdemo, who came in to stick up for his goalie.
