Anderson scores lone goal in Toronto Marlies' 5-1 AHL loss to Cleveland

CLEVELAND — Joey Anderson scored the lone goal for the Toronto Marlies in a 5-1 loss to the Cleveland Monsters in the American Hockey League on Friday. 

Brett Gallant, Tyler Sikura, Liam Foudy and Trey Fix-Wolansky scored for Cleveland in their fourth consecutive victory.

Anderson's goal at 10:05 of the second period was his first power play goal of the season. He has six points (five goals, one assist) through 12 games this season. 

The Marlies (8-5-1-1) won't have to wait long for another shot at Cleveland (9-3-1-3), as the Monsters visit Toronto on Saturday.

"I thought we could have easily been in this game," said Marlies coach Greg Moore. "Their goalie (Daniil Tarasov) had a really strong one. We were for the most part out chancing them through the first two periods and just couldn’t find the back of the net. Their goalie found a way to make some saves and I felt as though throughout the game we were in it all the way."

Toronto outshot Cleveland 36-33, with Marlies netminder Michael Hutchinson turning aside 28 shots.
