Marlies tame Bulldogs at Ivor Wynne

The Toronto Marlies defeated the Hamilton Bulldogs, 7-2 (boxscore), on Saturday afternoon in front of the largest crowd ever to see an American Hockey League game in Canada.

Attendance at Ivor Wynne Stadium in Hamilton was 20,565 for the "Steeltown Showdown," the 2012 AHL Outdoor Classic presented by Molson Canadian and Boston Pizza.

With game-time temperatures at -4 C (25 F), the hometown Bulldogs got on the board just 27 seconds into the contest on a goal by Dany Masse. But the Marlies answered three times before the end of the first period, carried a 4-2 lead into the third and scored three late goals to seal the victory.

Greg Scott scored twice for Toronto, Jerry D’Amigo and Philippe Dupuis recorded three assists each and Nicolas Deschamps added a goal and two assists.

The game was televised live on Sportsnet throughout Canada, and will re-air on the NHL Network in the U.S. on Sunday at 3 p.m. ET.
