The Toronto Marlies cruised to a 5-0 win over Grand Rapids at Ricoh Coliseum on Sunday. Goaltender Jussi Rynnas stopped all 31 shots he faced in posting the shutout.
Keith Aucoin scored a pair of goals, with Nazem Kadri, Nicolas Deschamps and Ryan Hamilton also finding the net.
It was a milestone night for Aucoin as his opening goal of the game was his 800th career point, moving him into sole possession of 11th place on the American Hockey League’s all-time scoring list.
Rynnas’ shutout was his third this season and also the eighth of his career, making him the all-time Marlies leader in that category.
The Marlies are off until Wednesday when they travel to Lake Erie.
