TORONTO (CP) - The Toronto Marlies got three power play goals in the first period and held on to beat the Peoria Rivermen 4-3 in American League action Sunday at Ricoh Coliseum.

Colin Murphy, Erik Westrum, Jiri Tlusty and Carlo Colaiacovo scored for the Marlies (3-3-1-0), who had lost four of their previous five games. Charles Linglet, with two, and Trent Whitfield replied for Peoria (4-3-0-1), which had won their first road game of the season a day earlier in Hamilton.

Playing in front of a season-low crowd of 2,468, Toronto jumped out to a 1-0 start during the first power play of the game, when Colin Murphy fired a wrist shot through the legs of Rivermen goalie Jason Bacashihua at 3:43 his third goal of the season.

On the Marlies' next man advantage, Westrum took a nice cross-crease pass from Jeremy Williams and beat Bacashihua at 7:44 to double Toronto's lead.

Tlusty batted a backhand by Bacashihua to make it 3-0 at 11:35, but Linglet walked in all alone on Marlies goalie Mikael Tellqvist and roofed a backhander over his shoulder to get the Rivermen on the scoreboard at 12:59. However, Colaiacovo restored the three-goal lead at 16:04, during a four-minute fighting penalty to Mike Glumac.

The Rivermen got a power play goal of their own in the second period, after Whitfield beat Tellqvist during a goalmouth scramble at 6:09. Peoria drew within one on Linglet's second of the game, which came at the 14:30 mark after a poor clearing attempt by a Marlies defenceman.
