Division rivals the Toronto Marlies (4-3-0-0) and Hamilton Bulldogs (4-1-0-2) will face off today at 3pm in Hamilton at Copps Coliseum. This will be the second of twelve match-ups between the two teams this season. The game will mark the first of a six game road stand for the Marlies. The last time these two teams met was on October 20th at Ricoh Coliseum, where the Marlies defeated the Bulldogs 2-1.
This will be the third game in three nights for the Bulldogs as they return to Copps Coliseum following a 3-2 victory over the Comets in Utica on Saturday evening. Hamilton currently sits on top of the North Division.
The Marlies are coming off of a 4-1 loss to the Rochester Americans Saturday evening at Ricoh Coliseum. Spencer Abbott scored a goal to extend his point streak to 6 games. However, with the loss, the Marlies have fallen to third in the North Division behind Hamilton and Rochester.
