Sparks shuts the door against Bridgeport

Garret Sparks posted a 31-save shutout and Connor Brown scored a pair of goals as the Toronto Marlies defeated the Bridgeport Sound Tigers 3-0 on Sunday. The Marlies took a commanding two games to none series lead in the North Division SemiFinals.

Ben Smith had the other Marlies goal.

With the benefit of a deep bench, the Marlies had the luxury of sitting some regulars. Viktor Loov, Matt Frattin, Colin Smith, Tobias Lindberg and David Kolomatis were all scratches.

Toronto can potentially close out the series with a win on Thursday at Ricoh Coliseum.
