Well this seems awfully familiar, doesn’t it? Marlies roll into Rochester, up 2-0 in the series looking to close out strong. The team has seen great performances from their netminder and a bearded gentleman wearing #29 on his sweater while being supported by great numbers at Ricoh Coliseum. Yes, this does seem mighty familiar.

Ahead of game three, here are six things to help get your head in the game:

  • With two points in game two (1g, 1a), Jerry D’Amigo became the Marlies all-time playoff scoring leader with 17
  • Drew MacIntyre’s game two shutout was his first since joining Toronto
  • The Toronto Marlies are the only Western Conference team leading their opponent 2-0 after two games, while all four Eastern Conference series are currently at 2-0
  • The Marlies have won 21 of their last 25 games against the Americans and are 21-4-0-2 in their last 27 visits to Blue Cross Arena
  • Rochester started David Leggio in game one but went with Matt Hackett in game two, so it’s a toss-up as to who’ll be in net Wednesday night
  • Tune into all the action starting at 7pm on AHL Live as Jon Abbott and Bob McGill bring you the call from Rochester

As you’ve come to learn by now, it’s pretty standard operating procedure that I’ll drop lineup news and notes a little closer to game time – so catch me on twitter (@chansler)

6:11pm:   David Leggio is expected to start in goal for the Rochester Americans while the Toronto Marlies counter (predictably) with Drew MacIntyre.
