TORONTO -- A long travel day turned even longer for the Chicago Wolves on Wednesday night when they lost in overtime to the Toronto Marlies in Game 3 of the Western Conference semifinals at Ricoh Coliseum.

Left winger Jerry D'Amigo's goal at 3:28 of overtime gave the Marlies a 4-3 win and 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. D'Amigo crashed the crease and poked a rebound behind Wolves goalie Jake Allen, who finished with 26 saves.

Toronto will attempt to sweep the series when it plays host for Game 4 on Friday.

After going through numerous travel delays to arrive in Toronto on Wednesday morning, the Wolves controlled much of the play during the second half of the game. Chicago moved to the brink of elimination despite outshooting Toronto 35-30.

Marlies defenseman T.J. Brennan opened scoring on the power play, as his one-time blast beat Allen top-shelf 5:26 into the game.

Play opened up with five minutes remaining in the frame as the teams exchanged four goals.

Chicago found the equalizer at 15:41 when left winger Dmitrij Jaskin redirected a shot from the point on the power play, opening the floodgates.

Less than one minute later, Toronto center Peter Holland answered. He evaded Wolves defenders to get open in front of the net for a clear shot and the 2-1 lead

The Wolves again tied the game as center Adam Cracknell stripped the puck in the offensive zone and pounced on a rebound to push it over the goal line at 18:28.

Eleven seconds later, Marlies right winger Brandon Kozun sent in a bouncing shot that handcuffed Allen and bobbled into the net as the Marlies took a 3-2 lead into intermission.

The back-and-forth continued into the second period, and the Wolves evened the score, 3-3. Right wing Tyler Shattock finished off a cross-crease pass at 11:34.

Marlies goaltender Drew MacIntyre kept his team in the game, stopping 32 shots to remain undefeated in the postseason.
