DETROIT -- Spencer Abbott and Greg McKegg scored shootout goals to lift the Toronto M

DETROIT -- Spencer Abbott and Greg McKegg scored shootout goals to lift the Toronto Marlies to a 4-3 victory over the Grand Rapids Griffins on Monday in an AHL outdoor game in front of 20,337 at Comerica Park, home of the Detroit Tigers. Chandler Catanzaro Jersey . Abbott had two assists during regulation, and McKegg had one. They were the only players to score in the five-round shootout. Luke Glendening, who was playing in his fourth career outdoor game, scored twice for the Griffins. "Its special," said Glendening, a Grand Rapids native and Michigan graduate. "Its in Detroit, and I come to Tigers games with my family and friends, so to be able to play here was fun. "Obviously, were frustrated with the outcome, but to soak in the whole experience was special." Carter Ashton had a goal and an assist for the Marlies. The game was part of the Hockeytown Winter Festival. preceding the NHLs Winter Classic between the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs at Michigan Stadium on New Years Day. "It was louder than I thought it was going to be," Griffins coach Jeff Blashill said. "The fans were into it for sure, and Id be interested to be a Tiger and see what its like when its full because it was loud out there. "It was a great atmosphere." Of the seven previous AHL outdoor games, five have gone to overtime. Toronto forward Kenny Ryan, who is from nearby Franklin, Mich., scored the tying goal at 2:22 of the third period. "I come to games a lot in the summer with friends and family," Ryan said. "It was a pretty cool experience sitting out there in the outfield, almost, just looking at all the people that came, everything that was going on. "It was a really great experience." Light snow fell periodically throughout the game, and the game-time temperature was a chilly 22 degrees. Outdoor games are generally tougher on the goalies, who dont get a chance to warm up on the heated benches. "It was definitely tough staying warm out there," Griffins goalie Tom McCollum said. "I was skating around as much as I could. I actually ended up switching to a heavier shirt after the first period. It seemed to help a little bit but its one of those things you have to battle through." Marlies counterpart Drew Macintyre, who spent time in the Detroit organization, admitted to his own struggles, as well. "After a while, you get comfortable in a game. Pucks tend to kind of stick to you," Macintyre said. "Every puck, it was a battle to kind of cradle the rebounds. The entire game, you feel like you just got into the game. Even when I got into the shootout, it was like the game just started. "I hadnt got into a rhythm. That was different." It was the largest home crowd for the Griffins, who usually play at the 10,834-seat Van Andel Arena. However, it wasnt a record crowd for Grand Rapids, which played some games during its International Hockey League days at the 20,804-seat Palace -- the home of the NBAs Detroit Pistons. Joe Klecko Jersey . Messis 75th-minute goal answered some of the criticism the clubs all-time leading scorer had received for his lacklustre performances in the teams recent losses in the league, Champions League and Copa del Rey final. Ben Ijalana Jersey . Englands only win in the four most recent trips north had been tight, and Scotland was expected after losing 28-6 to Ireland six days ago to show some venom against its archrival. . Paul George and Darren Collison each scored 17 points and Roy Hibbert added 11 points and nine rebounds for the Pacers (9-3), who won their third straight.San Diego, CA ( - The Pittsburgh Pirates have apparently re- signed left-handed pitcher Francisco Liriano.
