HAMILTON, Ont. - Brendan Gallagher scored twice and Cedrick Desjardins made 23 saves as the Hamilton Bulldogs defeated the Toronto Marlies 6-3 in American Hockey League action Friday.
Joonas Nattinen, Morgan Ellis, Alexander Avtsin and Aaron Palushaj added goals for the Bulldogs (5-5-2).
Desjardins' win comes in his first game of the season, having returned to the lineup after suffering a groin injury in training camp.
Matt Frattin, playing in his first game in six months after undergoing knee surgery in the spring, scored twice, and Jerry D'Amigo added a goal for the Marlies (7-5-1).
Toronto opened the scoring after Hamilton's Jarred Tinordi was whistled for hooking at 7:19 of the first, giving the Marlies a two-man advantage.
Frattin scored his first goal of the season at 8:53, collecting a slap-pass from winger Spencer Abbott and finding the top corner with a quick wrist shot.
