MILWAUKEE -- Brandon Kozun finally got a few pucks to bounce his way. Kozun scored two goals and assisted on another while Drew MacIntyre stopped 27 shots as the Marlies topped the host Milwaukee Admirals 5-2 on Saturday in American Hockey League playoff action. Toronto now leads the best-of-five first-round series 2-0. "Its nice (to have the puck go in), but its nicer to get the win," said Kozun. "Were up 2-0 now. Milwaukees played well and given us all we can handle. Now we go back to Toronto and try to finish it." Including the regular season, Kozun had gone 15 games without a goal, registering just one assist. "We knew he would break out at some point," said Marlies head coach Steve Spott, "And in a game like tonight where we werent that tidy, it was great to have him break out and get a couple of big goals for us." Sam Carrick, Korbinian Holzer and Jerry DAmigo also scored for Toronto, which registered three power-play goals on eight opportunities while killing off all seven of Milwaukees chances with the man advantage. Calle Jarnkrok and Bryan Rodney scored for the Admirals, who face the daunting task of needing to win three straight, all in Toronto. Kozun hit the crossbar early in the game, but he broke through at 18:51 of the first period to give Toronto a 1-0 lead. Kozun fired a low wrister from the top of the left circle that found its way through traffic past Milwaukee goalie Marek Mazanec, who never saw it. Carrick made it 2-0 at 8:07 of the second with his third goal of the series, scoring during a two-man advantage. Carrick was all alone at the left post and took a pass from Trevor Smith straight across the goalmouth. Milwaukee had committed four penalties in a span of three minutes 15 seconds to set up that opportunity. The Admirals finally got on the board in the first minute of the third period. Jarnkrok beat MacIntyre from inside the top of the right circle off a faceoff 53 seconds in. Milwaukee had life, and another opportunity came their way when Toronto defenceman Dylan Yeo went to the box for four minutes on high-sticking call just two minutes later. But the Marlies killed off all four minutes with little trouble, then added an insurance goal on another power play. Mazanec stopped the initial shot by Holzer, but lost sight of the puck between his legs and Kozun poked it in at 11:31. Holzer added a third power-play goal for the Marlies at 17:21. Rodney scored for Milwaukee with 1:06 remaining before DAmigo added an empty-net goal with 39.5 seconds left. "I think special teams are always a huge part of success in the playoffs," said Holzer. "All the guys sacrificed and we had (MacIntyre) standing on his head. It was a great effort by the whole team -- by every killer out there and the guys on the bench cheering guys on after they blocked shots. Its a whole-team effort and something to be proud of." "Our power play the entire game -- the entire series so far -- has been very average," said Milwaukee head coach Dean Evason. "We definitely have to be better for sure." MacIntyre stopped all 15 first-period shots from Milwaukee, then stoned Colton Sissons on a point-blank shot from just outside the right post a little over a minute into the second. Game 3 is Thursday, May 1 in Toronto. Games 4 and 5, if necessary, would be Saturday and Sunday. Milwaukee has never come back from a 0-2 playoff deficit. "If were the first team, that would be awesome," said Evason. "Why not? You just look back to last year, we won three in a row to get into the playoffs by one point. Weve got a group that all year has talked about one game at a time. We play on Thursday. When the puck is dropped, well play hard and see where we sit at the end of the night." Juuse Saros Jersey . Campbell, playing on loan with Greek club Olympiacos, found the net with a left-footed shot in the 44th minute off a pass from second-half substitute Jorge Rojas to open the scoring at Estadio Nacional de Costa Rica. P.K Subban Jersey . They signed their first kicker. Ottawa inked Nick Setta, a 32-year-old native of Lockport, Illinois, to a contract. http://www.nhlpredatorshockeystore.com/ ... lm-jersey/. On the day after Billy Horschel posted his 12th straight round in the 60s, won his second straight tournament against a world-class field and picked up an additional $10 million bonus as the FedEx Cup champion, Watson was kicking back in his seat at a Kansas City Royals game. Austin Watson Jersey . According to TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie, the deal will pay Schenn $2.25 million in the first year and $2.75 million in the second year. In 82 games with the Flyers in 2013-14, Schenn scored 20 goals and added 21 assists. Marek Mazanec Jersey . He insists hes not counting. "If youre thinking hits, youre not paying attention to wins," Altuve said Sunday after leading the Houston Astros past the Texas Rangers 3-2.MIAMI - All the Miami Heat had to do to secure their first home winning streak in more than a month was hold onto a 23-point second-half lead against a team with the NBAs worst record.And even that proved too difficult.Michael Carter-Williams scored 20 points, Luc Mbah a Moute added 19 and the Philadelphia 76ers went on an enormous run to turn the game around and stun the Heat 91-87 on Tuesday night — winning consecutive games for the first time this season.It aint going to get no worse than this, Heat guard Dwyane Wade said.Miami was up 69-46 midway through the third quarter.Philadelphia — yes, Philadelphia, the team that started the season with 17 straight losses, one of those coming by 53 points — outscored the Heat 45-18 the rest of the way.A very unlikely win, 76ers coach Brett Brown said, with incredibly unusual circumstances.The 76ers only had eight players available because of illness, injuries and roster moves. Carter-Williams played every minute of the second half, Mbah a Moute played 20 of those 24 minutes, and despite basically everyone logging heavy minutes Philadelphia forced Miami into 28 per cent shooting after halftime and outrebounded the Heat 25-18.I think we just keep fighting, Carter-Williams said. Were losing — theres not much we can do but keep plugging, trying to come back, especially when theres time left in the game.K.J. McDaniels scored 13, while Jerami Grant and Robert Covington each had 11 for Philadelphia.Wade scored 17 of his 23 points in the first half for Miami, which was outscored 49-30 after halftime and plays host to LeBron James and Cleveland on Thursday in a Christmas Day showdown.And this was anything but the way the Heat wanted to go into that one.Obviously, thatll be a common theme that we were looking ahead, but all of a sudden do you start looking ahead halfway through the third quarter, Oh, lets start thinking about the Christmas game, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. Thats not it. You have to credit their defence.Shawne Williams scored 17 and Mario Chalmers added 11 ffor the Heat, who missed four 3-pointers that would have given them the lead in the final minute.ddddddddddddMiami also turned the ball over 22 times, helping Philadelphia score 21 points.Miami led by 13 after the opening quarter, by 15 at intermission and pushed the lead to 69-46 — a 23-point cushion — midway through the third quarter.Someone forgot to tell the 76ers that the game was over.Carter-Williams made a 3-pointer with one-tenth of a second left in the third to get Philadelphia within 78-73, and the 76ers run never really stopped.Us looking ahead? Man, were 13-15 coming into this game, Wade said. Theres nobody looking ahead.___TIP-INS76ers: Before the game, the 76ers announced the signing of F Malcolm Thomas, who played five games in Philadelphia before being waived last month. Ronny Turiaf was waived to accommodate the Thomas signing. ... Philadelphia blocked 10 of Mamis 21 missed shots in the first half, making the 76ers the third team this season to have that many blocks in a half (joining Oklahoma City and Milwaukee).Heat: Centers Chris Bosh (strained calf) and Justin Hamilton (concussion) were sidelined, Bosh for the sixth straight game. Hes done some shooting but the Heat arent certain if hell be ready for Thursday. ... Miami hasnt won two straight since Nov. 22-23, and hasnt won two straight at home since Oct. 29-Nov. 2. ... Wade started the night 65th on the all-time NBA scoring list. He moved to 62nd on Tuesday, passing Lou Hudson, Calvin Murphy and World B. Free.OUT OF LASTThe 76ers still have the worst winning percentage in the NBA, but theyre no longer the team farthest from first in the Eastern Conference. Philadelphia (4-23) is 17 games back of Toronto in the East — a half-game closer to the top than the New York Knicks (5-25, 17 1/2games back).SECOND-HALF SLIDEMiamis 10 second-half field goals were the fewest by a Heat team in a regular-season game since making eight against the Knicks on April 2, 2013.UP NEXT76ers: At Portland on Friday.Heat: Host Cleveland on Thursday.
