Default Silverthorn earns second straight shutout as Stars blank Marlies 3-0

TORONTO (CP) - Rookie goalie Steve Silverthorn is 2-for-2 in his American Hockey League career.

Two games, two shutouts.

Silverthorn made 24 saves for his second consecutive whitewash as the visiting Iowa Stars blanked the Toronto Marlies 3-0 Saturday night.

Forwards Dave Hacker and Junior Lessard and defenceman Mario Scalzo scored for the Stars - all in the second period - in front of 3,886 fans at Ricoh Coliseum.

Iowa improved to 21-16-1 with its second consecutive victory, and is an impressive 13-8-1 on the road.

The Marlies, meanwhile, fell to 15-19-5 with the loss. Toronto is winless in its past eight games at home (0-7-1) and hasn't won at Ricoh Coliseum since Nov. 29.

Silverthorn, a native of Owen Sound, Ont., was making his second AHL start in two days after being recalled from Idaho (ECHL) on Friday. The 25-year-old netminder, who spent four years at Colgate University before joining Idaho last season, stopped 32 shots in shutting out Hamilton 2-0 on Friday night in his AHL debut.

While the Marlies didn't challenge Silverthorn with many scoring opportunities, he robbed forwards Kevin Baker and Jeff Corey in the third period.

Toronto netminder Justin Pogge, making his first start at home since representing Canada at the Spengler Cup in Switzerland over the holidays, stopped 22 of 25 shots.

The game was tied 0-0 after the first period and Iowa led 3-0 through 40 minutes.

After a scoreless opening period, Hacker deflected Mark Fistric's slapshot from the blue-line past Pogge at 7:52 of the second.

Lessard made it 2-0 when he wired a shot from the left faceoff circle that went through Pogge at 15:17.

BE-LEAF-ABLE has a little shameless behaviour in the past

The Marlies are 12th in the West right now, and I'm not sure they'll make the playoffs.

(Looks at Leafs)... Hmm... is there some sort of comparison to be made there. I hope not. :(
"It's not the way it's going to be. We have to be very, very patient and build this the right way. We have to go through a process. It may be painful. I hope it isn't. But we're prepared for all the bumps and pratfalls and potholes in the road ahead. I'm prepared for it anyway, or I wouldn't have come." - Ron Wilson, Head Coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
